    Ok so I am getting a three bred nubian does. (doing some goat trading) and I had some paperwork question. Ok one is purebred and one is american. I know the american means that it is not necisarily purebred, like somewhere in the bloodlines there was like a alpine mixed in. And the purebred is just that, purebred nubian. But the american is bred to a purebred buck. What does that make the babies? Still american????

    yes because the kids will still have that alpine in their bloodlines.

    If both parents are registered then yes the babies can be registered, but they will be registered as American Nubians.

    If all the does were bred to a purebred buck, the kids out of the purebred does will be purebreds and the ones out of the American does will be Americans. Be sure to get buck memos from the person you're getting the does from so you can register the kids. Her herd name will go on the kids' papers, but since the kids will be born on your farm, you can use your tattoo.

    Like goat kid said if the kids were in utero before you got them they will get the previous owners herdname, but you will imcorperate them into youre herd tattoo and order of births. I have bought does that were bred by another herd put their herdname first and then mine, referencing that they were born in my herd. For example, my goats are now being leased, we decided to put the herdname of the person in possesion on the kids sinse they were born on her farm, but sinse i technically still own the animals we made reference to my herd as well, so all kids born are Dreamhigh 2'Tuf____________ (kids name)

    The only open herdbook is Lamancha. So Lamanchas are the only breed where you can breed up like that to purebred. Nubians would just be American if you bred an American to Purebred. Doublecheck with a Nubian breeder to know for sure.

    I just spoke with the ADGA yesterday. Sables, as well as Lamancha, can be bred up to purebred. They are the only two that can go from American to Purebred. :hi5:
