    I saw her in the link you posted -- that is not a marking that a purebred pygmy would get. Holly and Noel are probably nigerian pygmy mixes. Which are totally cute goats believe me I know!

    I should be happier then, right? I've heard Pygmies have really difficult births.

    yah pygmies tend to have more difficulties. when I had my unregistered herd of mixes the ones who were more alike to the pygmy breed had the difficulties with kidding while those who were more to the nigerian breed kidded fine.
