    I do believe that the "love this" was said as a smarty comment - I know she did not mean it like we really would "love it".

    I do not understand why people would intentionally breed for deformaties. I would honestly love to do a necropsy on one and really investigate what went genetically wrong. It reminds me alot of clef pallet.

    Yes, I meant "love this"! But you know -- they REALLY think they are beautiful! Isn't that something? They are like that there, I guess?!

    Anyway, I "loved" the article!

    it's what they are used to seeing
    who knows
    they could look at our goats and think they were ugly
    the face is "nature made"
    the ears do bother me tho...

    I have come across these goats before....They are an actual breed over there and have been around for years...they certainly aren't "easy on the eyes" and it does make you wonder how they can eat. The ears though have been cropped on those ones as they are born with Nubian like ears.

    It is disturbing to see that those "faults" are an actual sought after trait, but I would imagine that any foreigner seeing our goats would see them as odd....LaManchas being an example, they are a perfectly normal dairy goat to most of us...but a foreigner may see it as an oddity that they are bred to have the dairy character as well as no external ears.

    We learn something new everyday. :greengrin:

    No worries CountryGal....Thank you for opening the door to another world of "different" goaties

    that was so horrible to see.....I do not see lamancha's with deformities ,just unique .......and we do not breed in deformaties ,lamancha'a are a very healthy breed,............ what I see with the saudia Arabia way.......... is a very unhealthy deformed animal that is mistreated everytime it is bred..........and has to live that way.........that is animal abuse in every way.............. and doing it on purpose,,that is just wrong......... :tears: :cry: :(

    ...........I am so saddened

    Isn't it nice to see that everything can be loved? No matter how ugly some people they they are, there is always someone to love them. :leap:

    I didn't mean this example as an offense to the breed....it was an example of how they( a foreigner) might see "our" goats :(

    This just got me to thinking---I look at goats with no external ears and see beauty---I look at goats with extra teats and find no fault---I see goats that fall over at a loud noise and see laughter and love---I look at large goats and small goats and find them very eye-pleasing.
    I was born and raised in the USA.
    BUT
    If I was born and raised in Saudi Arabia I would see beauty in the goats I knew and loved. I guess it's a matter of understanding and tolerance of things and people and animals that are different. Thank you for showing me a different way to see things.
    Hugs to all, :grouphug: , Candy

    yep countrygal, your opening our eyes to different cultures, and getting to read every ones views on it.

    I was drinking milk, and when i saw those pics i spit a little on the keyboard. I cant really call them gorgeous, or pretty, and it does make me wonder how they actually eat! hmm, dont really know what to think.

    I didn't mean to offend you CountryGal, it's just interesting. . . . very interesting. :) I would have never known that goats like these existed, so thanks for sharing. Actually, when I first saw them, I thought they were dead, stuffed goats and people put things inside to make them look so misformed or something. Anywho, I didn't mean to hurt you, if I did. :hug:
