What are Moonspots?
People seem to be fond of them lol
as far as i know they are darker spots on a lighter backround.
Lol thats a bit weird
Someone will come on soon and post pics of some moon spots for you, or if you go through some old posts in the picture forum you can probably find them. Welcome to TGS!
Thanks Di I will keep my eyes peeled lol
go to chelsea's website.. on her jr doe's page malibu and cimmarron have moonspots
Here go...this is a pic of my moonspotted buck. Moonspots do seem to be quite popular...I know I love em! Hope this pic helps a bit!
kylee? did you get the pedigree on him yet?? i'm very curious
lol they are very pretty :clap:
SDK: Haven't gotten his papers yet...the lady I got him from is going through a hard patch here so she's doing her best. Just the sweetest lady so I don't want to rush her,,,but I am SO excited!
Whats the difference between moonspots and just plain old regular spots?
Correct me if I am wrong... but moonspots are usually of color, while spots are normally white.
And moonspots can be a lighter color than their background color or darker. My buckling "Painted Warrior" is a good example of this...
And see that white spot, that is a spot, while the rest are Moonspots.
Hope that helps some.
Thanks Everyone I understand now
They can be any color including white.
Havris: Moonspots cannot be any color, they cannot be true black or white. Here's some moonspots info.... http://www.goatspots.com/moonspots.htm VERY good moonspot informational site.
Mt goats have spots of red/brown on them. The spots are on the hide but the hair is white over them. They both have wide bands of white. I thought they looked like a dalmation dog. These are not moonspots? are they :?
I've not ever seen black moonspots, but I've seen many nubians w/ white moonspots, and I've owned two,
(wish I had a better pic of this one, he had several white moonspots on his hips and butt)
Now that I think it over I haven't seen alot (or maybe any) non nubians w/ white moonspots, but moonspots do come in white!
no moonspot can be white. a white moonspot would just be a white spot, like on a broken pattern. they can be a light cream that is almost white, but not true white. i have had nubians before and the lightest moonspot we had was like an irish creme color.
this is my moonspotted buck. he has darkdark chocolate spots on a black background
Then there is Timmy. He all sorts of different colored moonspots:
I think my little doe, Leona has a small moonspot. She is a gold & white pinto, so has lots of small spots all over but there is one on her chin, (like the one Timmy has) but smaller. It's a chocolate-grey color. . . . I need to get a pic but have been too busy. Need to know for sure if it's a moonspot. I know it's definitely different than the random spotting all over her body, it's a dark color, almost looks like a dirty smudge, but it's not that. . . .
I just love Timmy, he's adorable! Did u wether him or is he staying a buck?
Just curious. Has anyone had a goat that had only one moonspot but produced kids w/ lots of moonspots??? Anna Brown said it's possible but I was just curious if it's happened to anyone else?
