    So, I'm guessing he is from a Weinheimer bloodline????

    Actually he is from the rarest bloodline of Spanish goat, Devil's River.

    Yes, one of only a couple of the bloodlines that have the blue color. To my knowledge, this color and the genetics behind them are similar to the blue roan in horses.

  13. Hi Just a quick question
    My island that I live on has very old goat breeds, brought in by the Spanish. This is like years and years and years ago. We have what we now call 'island goats', and some are blue, but not many.
    So is this from Devils river ? - Yes the bucks we get look just like the pic you posted.
    I will try get a pic for you guys of our island goats soon.

    What part of the world do you live in?

  15. I live on the island st.helena south Atlantic. Portuguese, and Spanish were the first men to use the island as a pit stop for water and food. They left goats behind so when they returned food was no a problem. This was in the time of sailing ships of course.

    One day, I'll have something as topnotch as some of you have. @Calfee Farms thanks so much for keeping my eye on the ball.

    Life has been harsh this year, and it isn't letting up. You are so awesome for opening up and sharing.

    Forgot to say, I really like him. I'm calling him Blue Suede in my head!

    My breed is the same--left on islands by the Spanish! We don't have any blues (Only buckskin & a sort of bay/mahogany) but the horns, ears & body type are quite similar!
