    The 2 little girls I am bring home are Boer X LaMancha and the breeder says 50%. Dam is 50% Boer and 50% LaMancha. Sire is 100% LaMancha. Wouldn't the girls be 75% rather than the 50%?

    Thanks Sarah. I "thought" I was correct but since the breeder is supposed to know what she's doing, I wasn't exactly positive. The girls look like Lamancha but have a paint coloring like the Boer. I may grow to like this breed once I get past the lack of ears. These 2 have gopher ears.
