    as soon as i can learn how to i i'll post a picture or two of my billy, his markings are really unusual for me some folks say he is marked like a wildebeast with a cross down his back like a donkey,, i didnt bring my cd with pics on it to the library to day as i forgot but i will in a couple more days,, if anyone has goats like those i described i would love to see pics of them,, he is sposed to be half feinting and half nigerian ..thanks for your help..

    no his markings are more pronounced and the line is very distinctive as well and he is light cream with definitive black markings on legs and belly and rear.. i cant wait to show you.. .. this morning i looked all over the place for that cd to bring with me..someone told me he has some feinting goat in him as well because the previous owners use to make him drop when they would stomp their feet at him when he was little..he doesnt do that now as an adult buck tho..

    Sounds almost like a buckskin. Could be a buckskin, chamoisee, a form of agouti...we'll be able to tell ya with a pic.

    He sounds like a chamoise, the black face on bucks is pretty commen as is the cross over the withers.
