    I got this 5 month old doe (whose name is Josephine) when she was 2 weeks old. The man that gave her to me told me she was a Nubian. Anybody who owns a Nubian can say that that is not all!! She is waaaayyy to fat and small to be a Nubian! :) I took her with me to the 4-H goat tag-in last Saturday and the goat committee agreed on a mix of three breeds. But, I am curious what all of you think! So, leave a reply and tell me what breeds you think are in this goat. Then, I'll post what the 4-H goat committee said they think she is. :) Isn't she a darling? :wink: (We have a 3 week old goat that is just a bit smaller than her! I have never owned a goat so small! :) )

    Definately some boer, I would go with Boer X Pygora or Boer X Angora.

    Alright, I'm finally back on to say what breed she is! :) I was told that she is an Angora/Nubian/Boer! Quite a crazy mix!! :wink: So, for 4-H I will have to show her in the specialty class instead of the dairy...where I always am. The specialty class always shows on Sunday and the dairy is on Monday. I guess I'll be showing on Sunday. :(

    Thanks everyone for your input! :wink:
