    We bought 3 Obers March 4th. :hammer: Clover gave birth to a girl Tuesday. Here is the question, has anyone ever
    seen skin tassels on an Ober? Clovers little girl has skin tassels. :scratch: Clover is a papered Ober and we
    were told bred with a papered Ober. We are inquiring as to whether the buck has skin tassels. I did an
    internet search but didn't find anything conclusive.

    along the same lines ... do nubians get them? I dont think I've ever seen an anglo nubian with waddles ...

    I know boers shouldnt get them, neither should proper angoras ... rangelands get them because of the heavy dairy influence ... really I've only seen them on the swiss breeds ... saanen, british alpine, togg, meelan and brown ... hmmmmmmmmm

    Purebred Nubians arnt suposed to have wattles, americans can. Others will argue the point.

    I have seen nubians that were supposed to be Purebred with them but they aren't supposed to.
