Hi there all. I am in the middle of learning how to do HTML code and how to create new pages for the website.

What I am in need of is information pertaining to different breeds.

I want to have a page for each breed of goat along with some pictures.

This is a lot to research on my own so I am asking for your help.

What I would like is the history of the breed, special characteristics, color variations, usual height and weight and interesting facts on the breed.

Any pictures you personally have of the breed are acceptable but must show correctness in all areas (not perfect but a good example). I will give credit to who owns the animal along with who took the photo.

Any information pertaining to the categories of meat, dairy and fiber are also wanted. I would like to have a general goat info page where I will add this information.

I can not guarantee that all information passed onto me will be used.

Anyone who helps gather the information that I do use will be noted as having done so.

Please e-mail the information to [email protected] with the heading "for website addition breed ______"

Thank you all for aiding me in this endeavor.

Hey Stacey, You can use any of the information on my site about the MiniNubians. I have an 'About MiniNubians' page. You can use the pictures on my site as well. Just let me know if you need any other info.

Well there are a lot of different colors in alpines.....
Cou Blanc - Meaning White neck, white in the front quarters and black in the back quarters. Often with black on the lower legs face and dorsal stripe.
Cou Clair - meaning clear neck, saffron tan or gray in the front quarters and black in the back quarters often with black on the lower legs dorsal stripe and face.
Cou Noir - Meaning Black front, this is a very rare color patturn with the animal being black in the front and white in the back.
Chamoisee - Brown or tan often with black or white lower legs and facial markings. Sometimes having a black dorsal (spelling for bucks is chamoise)
Two-Tone Chmaoisee - Same as above only the animal has literly two tons of the color, usually being a little lighter int he front then the back.
Lavender - This color is a lot like a tog color but the togg patturn is discrimminated against, it is a grayish color often in the patturn of the cor clair or chamoisee.
broken - Any color broken by a splash of white somewhere on the body or neck.
Belted any color with a white belt (a belt goes all the way around the animal)
Sundgau - This is what some call traditional swiss markings, a black animal with white facial stripes ears and lower legs. They also have white triangles on either side of the tail.
Pied - any color being spotted or mottled.
Alpines can be any combination of colors including solid black. Solid white and toggenburg patturn is discriminated against.

You can use pictures on my website, Cally is a belted two tone chamoisee little bit is a two tone, juju is a levender two tone chamoisee chrome is a broken two tone lavnder scarlett is a cou blanc dixie is a belted cou clair
Fire is a broken chamoise
the only pictures refrain from using are Peek and annie on the buck pages.

Stacey, it is definitely up to you.. but I think that for the dairy breeds you should have the ADGA breed standard up there. That is not pirating.. everybody uses that for everything. That would be the best way to show what they are supposed to be like, in my opinion. You can also add narratives on each page written by members.. but having the ADGA standards up there would probably be a good idea.

ok yah I get what you mean.

So if anyone wants to put little tidbits of information about the breed personality, and any history on the breed that wouldn't be in the breed standard I woud LOVE to have your input and of course you will get credit for it.

Thanks Katherine - good input

I know there are mini Obheraslis but other then that are there other mini breeds that are popular and I can find info on? or should I just do the mini nubians and mini obers adn leave it at that?
