    Could someone please help me identify what breed my goat is. We purchased her right after we got our Nigerian dwarf, just as a companion until we were able to get another Nigerian. We planned on selling her, but we quickly fell in love with our sweet girl Reba. Posting pictures below

    Maybe a Boer cross?

    Either a Miniature Nubian (which is a Nubian/Nigerian cross) or a Kinder (Nubian/Pygmy cross). She sure is pretty, and we LOVE our Mini Nubians a lot!

    ETA it looks like she's roughly the same height/size as your mature Nigi in the picture... is that about right?

    Agreed, pretty sure there's some Nubian there. Very interesting pattern!

    I'm guessing a Boer X Nubian cross? She's beautiful!

    Thank you! She is a little bigger than him, and her belly is huge right now. Expecting kids soon!

    Definitely has some Boer in her. She's pretty! What a sweet face, I hope you decide to keep her :)

    The shape of her horns and her stockiness look like they're from a Boer but I'm terrible at comparing size in photos. She sure is a cutie!
