    Our Nigerian doe had 4 kids. One is a little buckling with a heart on his back. Apparently his grandfather also had a heart. We are going to keep him as a breeder, hopefully he passes it on.

    So cool!:love:

    The shape of their spots does seem to be a very particular genetic thing. One of my bucks has the same spot pattern as his sire, and he has passed that pattern down to some of his kids too.

    We have a breeder boer with the same spot. She just had her first kids without the spot. Hopefully next time.

    Paw Print marking on Nigerian Dwarf Goat

    I have 4 wethers and 1 doe. One of the white goats with black markings has a giant black paw print on his shoulder! It's really cute
