    We got 4 new does and a new buck... I think the one doe is a Dapple? the other one I am not sure. So to start I am not sure what color the yellow headed Boers are actually called, and we have 4 of them lol ok but one of the news ones is yellow but she has a dark spot on her neck... what is the spot called or what color does it make her?

    here are some pictures.

    Oh poop sorry about the ripped tarp haging off their shelter roof, it was a tarp wall with a door but Wanda (their dog) decided it was unnessary!

    ok cool! she's just commercial so no biggy, just thought she was cool... I picked out of of the herd, I thought she looked neat and she is of course a big stout girl on top!

    What about the yellow color on the other ones heads what is it called? and the yellow headed one with the darker spot??


    Thanks! Tara

    Pretty girls! I am curious to know what they consider the yellow headed doe's color to be because one of our does is that color too :)

    'yellow' is usually a % boer, and called light brown (brown, black are the only recognized colors, they can be traditional, solid, dapple, paint)
