    To me, the white goat looks like a boer cross.

    The grey and white one looks like it has Toggenburg in it and the brown and black ones look like Nubian crosses to me. I agree that the white one looks like a Boer or Kiko cross.

    oh papa_c you finally got your goats!!! wonderful.

    black one mostcertinaly looks nubian - very pronouced romain nose.

    White one - yah a boer cross

    gray one - togg/nubian

    the others are at least part nubian because of their ears. Hard to really know

    but they are beautiful

    they all look like nubian crossed with something else. I would say a togg nubian cross for the gray one, that is where all that long hair is probably coming from. Toggs tend to get shaggier then other breeds. The little white one is probably a saanen nubian cross. The little brown one could be an alpine cross or a kinder. A kinder isa nubian crossed with a pygmy.

    Thanks to all for your opinions. Lady we got them from didn't know the breed but said they were bush goats. Father in law says they are brush goats. Whatever they are they are enjoying themselves as their pasture has several years of growing up wild with lots of blackberry vines, sawbriars, sumac bushes and lots of different saplings low enough for them to nibble on. We are certainly enjoying them.

    Very nice looking herd to start with! The gray colored one really stands out. With their ears being floppy the most common breed would be Nubian...but Boers also have floppy ears. Very pretty goaties whatever breed they may be :D
