    I was offered a free doe on Friday, my SO really liked her so we picked her up Saturday. She was part of a petting farm and has never been bred. The previous owner thinks she is approx. 5 or 6 yrs old, she also has no ideal what breed she is.

    She is just a little taller than my ND does, she is very solid even though she is a little on the fat side. We are thinking maybe a saanen/spanish mix, maybe.

    So any ideals what she is and would she be to old to breed for the first time?

    I have always wanted a white goat. :leap: Anyways here is Mazie

    Thanks I think she is a doll as well, and her name really just seems to fit.

    You know the more I look at those pictures I cannot but help seeing Pygmy in those legs, I dont know I have been staring at her so much trying to figure it out I am seeing her in my sleep.

    I just love white goats...and you are right--she does look kind of pygmy.

    I don't have much experience with breeding a doe the first time at her age, but I don't see why she couldn't be bred if you bred her to a pygmy or nigie buck. And after she's gone on a diet, of course.

    put her on a diet and then I only might do it. I bred two does for the first time when they were 4 and they were ok but I would make sure you can be there just in case she has trouble.

    She is already on a diet, the girl jiggles way to much when she moves. :roll:

    I wish I had taken a picture of her poor feet when we got her, they were horrible, actually all of her goats feet were bad, so we did them for her. Told her we would come back in two weeks and do the feet again, she is really a nice lady that just does not know alot about goats.

    She is cute! Congrats! I would say she is maybe a pygmy/saanan cross or maybe some nigerian dwarf in there.

    I'd say pygmy /nigi...more pygmy with those stout legs. And I agree with putting her on a diet before you have her bred...the right niogi buck could give you some very nice kids from her.

    She is a pretty girl! Take a look at my Angel, her dam is a nigi/pygmy and her sire a pygmy....she looks like a mini Saanen with her length of body and the lean nigi legs.

    I think she lookd pygmy too. She may afford to loose a little weight. but pygmies tend to have a very large and round belly. She may be taking on more pygmy traits then you think. I really dont think she looks that fat. She is a very deep doe.

    I am really hoping that she will bring some of that depth to my breeding stock. Now I have to figure out wich buck to put her with. My Lamancha, the blue-eyed ND, or my proven ND buck.

    I am leaning toward the lamancha or the blue-eyed buck. But to be honest I really dont care as she is such a sweetheart, she and my lamancha doe are having it out right now on who gets my attention first.

    I would breed her to a one of the nigerians due to her size. I'm thinkin' saanen/ pygmy but more pygmy. She's pretty!! :love:

    the first time you breed her i would breed her to a nigie or pygmy. Sinse she has never kidded before you may run into pronlems even with small kids.
