HI

Just wanting some advice from people who know about disqualifying faults for shows? I have a gorgeous anglo nubian doe kid who has black / grey pigmentation around her eyes, nose, belly etc but her skinon her body when I look at it looks quite pink??? I have read that pink skin in anglo nubians is a disqualifying fault and just wanted to check what they mean? is it just where you can see the skin or anywhere? and how pink is pink?:confused:

Try contacting a breeder in your area and see if they can give you a definition. In boers we have violet pigment that looks pink but has a slight gray tint. It can be hard to distinguish

... does a anglo nubian differ from a normal nubian? If not, then there is no color standard for nubians.
I don't believe so. In skillathon (all livestolivestock knowledge including breed id) were taught all nubians are anglo-nubians

I am guessing New Zealand has different standards for their Nubians. Could you take a picture of her skin? I had a couple Nubians who were cream colored and they had kind of yellowish skin. The only time I have ever seen pink skin on any goat is if they have white markings.

Hi all

Yes the NZ standard identifies pink skin as a fault. But from what I can gather it actually refers more to pink pigmentation on nose / around eyes etc which my goat doesn't have. The language is just quite confusing! Thanks all for the posts :)
