My guess is Kiko/Boer Cross. The horns are certainly Kiko, but the roman nose is Boer.
Probably right, Kikos don't have that profile. But the horns are fabulous, probably a cross. The owner would know. One of the first things to do when you want a goat is- do your homework. Then once you buy, ask to see everything. Registration papers (if any), vaccine records, worming records, date of birth, breed, mother, father, etc. Sorry if I got carried away.:doh: I agree with Glockowner, probably a Kiko/Boer cross.:p

He's a whole lot prettier than kikos here! I say Savanna as well but he very well could be a kiko/boer cross.

You will for sure! He's gorgeous :love: He is definitely very meaty, but his price says that he is probably a crossbred. I would say Savanna/Boer :)

I would guess a Boki of some sort also. I thought the Savanna goats had horns like the Boers, since the Boers figure so heavily in their origins.

Whatever he is...he is GORGEOUS! And what a price! Holy Cow! You are off to a wonderful start on your new hobby!

Wow! Just wow! He looks amazing!... And those horns are astonishing! He was a steal for $160. He is so meaty and full! I sure hope he isn't a trouble maker, that's the only way I'd sell a buck like that for that price. I'm not familiar with Savannas or Kikos so I can't help you with that, but I can drool over him and tell you how jealous I am of you! You'll have a wonderful time with goats and they'll change your world. The Goat Spot is an amazing website full of knowledgeable people that have been dealing with goats for many years, they always have the answers your looking for. So welcome to TGS and congrats on that amazing buck! I can't wait for more pictures!
