Curious to see how many people like wattles and how many don't.
My opinion is ,,yes they are unique and are part of the breed character ,,,,, even though I have fullblood boers as they do not have any...................... :thumbup:
I guess it really doesn't matter with me....though I do like the character they give, I prefer a "matched set", and up til now I haven't had a mini with them.
If I had my "druthers", I'd druther not have them. Don't have any on my NDG's, do have them on about half my Cashmeres. I don't hate them or anything, I'd just rather not have them on my milk goats. :wink:
Its probably been asked a million times, but do they have any function other than just "decorations"?
I don't believe they do have any purpose, nancy d.
Yeah, I don't really like them for some reason. I have proably 7 with wattles, I don't mind them, but I rather just not have them.
I think wattles are cute, even though none of my goats have they. One of the 4-hers I show with has a Boer mix doe with one wattle on her neck and another one on her ear. Its like she has an earring, so I call her the pirate goat!
I voted for depends. I like wattles on some breeds....I have a doe with them, she is a kiko cross. They dont bother me at all and the are cute little decorations....I wouldnt care to see them on my show goats but as pet goats I dont mind.
Not me. I dunno what it is about em, but I don't favor them.
I think I would tolerate them on an adult goat, but on a newborn I would see about removing them.
i LOVE them
they are sooooo totally cute
i had one doeling born with them this year but i sold her
my pack wether has them and i want to buy little hair clips and hang beads from them
my kids love them too
i think someone told me once (or i read on some forum) that the wattles, once upon a time during evolution, were like fish gills or residual lungs or some such thing
now a days they are just durn cute
I voted depends. I just love wattles, they are too cute (when in the right "spot" - although the "pirate" goat sounds cute!) One of our pygmies has wattles and that's all. She has very cute wattles though, it adds to her cute face. Anyways, I've heard it's difficult to trim around them for showing - I would love to get an ND w/ wattles, but there are none in our area that we can find.
but when i try to create an incubator it tells me

do you know what i'm doing wrong or who to contact?
I don't use the incubators personally, but you could try posting on the dragon cave forum, someone there could help probably. :?
I dont mind them but i prefere not to have them, having dairy goats and being one who shows, i favor the without them look. They make the neck look less clean aout the throats area. I have a few animals who have them. I didnt have any until last year. I bred one of my does to a buck who had them, both the kids came out with them. Sera's are really nice short fuzzy ones. Rube has them as did her dam. And both of rubys does have them. Sizzles are three different colors, they are whit at the top with a black band and a tan spot on the bottem of them. Scarlett has one on her neck and one up by her ear.
And yes they do have a purpose, at least when they are kids. Sera and Gibson (her brother) would suck on eachothers. They are pacifiers!
I like them as long as they are on the neck and are at an even length. Although the neck looks much cleaner without them. And it is easier to trim the neck without having to deal with wattles.
My ND doe has wattles... they are cute! Black with white on the tips... goat jewelry!
I love wattles, I think they are so cute!! Never had a wattled goat though :sigh:
I voted yes. I will say my personal experience is very limited. One of my two ND's has them and they are absolutely adorable on her! They are a matched pair of wattles, maybe it wouldn't be so cute if they were lopsided. But, man is she cute!!
I had a half reg boer doeling born with them- like dried wattles-they fell off in about a week?!?! that freaked me out- Her dam is half dairy goat. I personally don't like them.
So, I'm rubbing Uno's neck and notice something...
Teeny little wattles on each side of his neck! :ROFL:
That's what I get I guess. :roll:
