    I have twin 6-month old Mini Silky X Fainter doelings and Brigitte looks very similiar to them. Whatever she is, she's very pretty! Congrats!

    Fiber people, help me! I'm in the land of burs! :help: What kind of brush should I get for her? I've never experienced a goat with long hair before. It's torture getting the burs out of Snicker's coat, how the heck I'm I supposed to get them out of the shag goat?
    Polarhug, whenever you get the urge, please, come and braid.

    Not sure on a type of brush. You might want to give her a bath and put some conditioner in her hair while she's wet and brush the burs out...works good for horse manes and tails so I would expect it would work pretty well with a long haired goat. ;)

    She is really cute! Not a pygmy...maybe silky or silky/fainter cross. Or maybe even a combination of several breeds. But the long hair sure makes her look like a silky! Congrats!

    Nope, no fainting. There was a fainter in the pen with her, he didn't completely faint though, he just dragged his leg along for awhile after he saw us. At first I thought he was hurt, until he went back to walking normal.

    Is she tame? A lot of my "social" fainters rarely faint because they are not easily surprised. :) She looks pure to me.... I use some Cowboy Magic and a slicker brush to get all of mine brushed out. :)

    Do you know of any Silky breeders near San Antonio, TX? I love her temperment, she's still shy, but she's getting used to me quicker then any of my other goats did. Someday I might like to get one from a breeder, this will be a few years away though.
