Is it a Nubian crossed with a Nigerian Dwarf, or is it actually just a pure Nubian that has been bred down in size?

Yup. It is a Nigerian/Nubian cross or the descendants of those crosses. Mine are many generations away from the original cross.

edit to add: the little brown and moonspotted goat in the middle of my signature picture is my newest born mini nubian doeling. Her dam milked an average of 6 pounds a day on her 5th or 6th freshening (she was a mature doe when i got her and i can't remember how many times she had freshened before I got her, this is her second time freshening for me, and her previous owner said on one of her freshenings she was feeding her kids AND milking 5 to 6 pounds!!) I can't remember how many generations since the original cross she is.

Ok, to add on to your question, I have one also.
If you don't mind:)

I have a doe that is 75 nigerian 25 nubian.
She's the size of a nigerian but has the udder of a nubian.
Is she also a mini nubian?:)

Sounds like yours is an F2 of mini nubs. F1 would be nub x Nigi. F2 bred to either Nigi or Mini Nub.

Someone might correct me but I'm almost 90% sure yours is a mini nub.
