    Some photos from the Kalahari Reds Auction in Pretoria on Saturday.
    That should give you a good idea on the goat breed.

    They also had a very tame boer goat there. And I think this can serve for comparison.

    hrmm....looking at the pictures, I can't really tell the difference between the Kalahari Reds vs Boers. the Reds look longer to me, but that's about it..... but I'm also not a meat goat person....

    What sleek coats they have! Deep, rich, chestnut reds. I love the way the light reflects off of them. Some very imposing bucks. Their profiles are odd to me, the way their noses seem to disappear into their faces. Thank you for sharing--I'd not heard of Kalahari reds, before.

    They are quite lovely whatever you want to call them. The three mature bucks in their pens is my favorite picture. I'd take one of those buck papers or not.

    It seems like to me the reds have a more rounded or defined look about their nose and maybe different horn structure??

    They are beautiful. And they really resemble Boers a lot. They're absolutely gorgeous though. I've never heard of them.

    The ~24th May auction of indigenous goats should still be manageable tough. :angel:
