    I have a 10 month old, all black Spanish doe who has 2 tan moon spots on her left back leg. I'm going to to breed her with a solid strawberry blonde Spanish buck. Will her babies have at least a couple moon spots or will they have none?

    Maybe, maybe not. Only time will tell.

    I bred a traditional colored light blonde boer doe to a dark red dappled buck. I got a pure red little doeling. Her parents were 90% white, yet she didn’t have any white on her. I guess you just never know!

    I've bred spotted to spotted and gotten, solids and paints. Color usually is a crapshoot.

    Never know. As mentioned I have also bred spots to spots and didn’t get a single spotted kid one kidding, totally dappled up the next. I sold a buck with 2 spots and he produced spotted kids like crazy. Technically you only need 1 spot to produce spots but even then it’s a roll of the dice on what your actually going to get
