I recently purchased a young doe about a month ago. Last week I started to notice black spots on her lips, nose, eyelids, and her ears. I'm not absolutely sure if they were already there when I bought her, but they're obviously there now. I was wondering if anyone knows if these are normal markings for these goats or if it's some sort of sickness and if I should be concerned. I currently have her separated from my other goats just in case. Please let me know if you know anything about this... Thank you!

To be honest, I'm not absolutely sure. I think her mom is Alpine, I don't know what her dad is. I never saw him. Is it normal to be around the eyes, mouth, and ears too?

Actually that looks like regular markings to me. Are the bumpy? They are not supposed to be bumpy. Mine have them even my sheep.. I could be wrong but if it's not bumpy then I don't think you need to worry.
