Thanks it did! I've bookmarked it for future reference! So looks like Joseph is branded/belted that's cool
He's a handsome fellaView attachment 213470
This is a picture of him as a yearling, he's 3 1/2 now. I don't have current pictures, though, his patterns are more pronounced now and he no longer has the baby appearance. Someday soon, maybe, I'll carry the laptop with me and try getting pictures. The tablet I once used for pictures no longer allows me to sign on to TGS since the change over.
White isn't counted as a separate color in a pinto. Only the colors of the darker spots are counted. Patchwork is white, black, mahogany and roan, with frosted ears. He is very unique with those multiple types of coloration. The breeder realized too late he had flashy colors developing, and since he's grown, a fairly decent confirmation. He was 3 (three) days old when purchased and I was clueless at the time how much potential he had as a sire. Now that he's matured and I've learned more, I can see he is something special for my own self. I would love him the same even if he hadn't developed into such a nice specimen of old style dairy Nigerian Dwarf. Just means he grew into an even nicer piece of wethered eye candy, than he was to me as a newborn.Thought white, gold, and black would be!
They sure enough can be as confusing as all get out. Thing is, there have been times I've noticed the same coloration being categorized as a different color name in different breed types. Go figure. To complicate things even more, I had a buckskin kid that totally changed colors as an adolescent.Oh I see! These confusing colors
Yes someone else called them broken buckskin which I would have never thought of! To me that's not buckskin so... I wasn't sure but she's good with goats, trims hooves for me because I'm too much of a woos to try yet!Both June and Cookie's coloring would be considered "Buckskin with Extensive White Overlay".
Nigerian Dwarf Goats come in a rainbow of colors and patterns. I hope this page will help you understand the many colors our Nigerians can come in as well as help you decide what color to register...www.txskyz.com
