    Hi all!

    Wondering what the max height on a ND was?

    I had thought they were very short, but just went to a link here someone had provided to a breeder who shows her goats.. her ND's were much taller than I'd thought they would be.

    I'm asking because I have a girl who was sold to me as an ND, but thought she must be a mix due to size.
    Here's her pic- maybe you guys can tell me if you think she's a mix? I think I posted these pics here before lol.

    Here she is standing with my 4yo.

    I can take a tape out and measure her later. It really doesn't matter what she is, but I'm just curious. She was sadly neglected when I bought her, but I can tell she was somebody's lap baby once.

    ADGA and AGS height limits are 22.5 inches at the withers for does and 23.5 inches for bucks. NDGA is much shorter, I think 21 inches for does, not sure for bucks.

    She looks like a mini to me. When you get a height measurement it will be easier to tell. ;) Cute little girl! And cute goatie too!

    OK, I just went out and measured- she's 19" tall. Maybe she just seems tall because I'm short :roll:

    Thanks guys!

    Amy- yeah, I love that color. It does look like Hershey's chocolate! And I have 2 choc lab dogs too... It cracks me up how the three of them match.

    Our Hershey was the same size as your doe that is pictured, she was stocky like a Pygmy too but she was one of the bigger Nigerians though, her kids were Oreo and Cadbury, LOL and we have her grandson that is tall for a Nigerian that looks kind of like a donkey.

    Yep, most of our Nigerians (all registered) are in the 18-20 inch range, one is 21.5 inches.
