    What color would you call this little guy? Looks like silvery charcoal to me but does it have a name?

    it's odd.. that's for sure

    its almost like a charcoal chamoisee.. cause he has darker points, but not really defined..

    very mousey brown color

    they both look like chamoisees to me.. very faint ones.. and the reddish one has white

    Woo Hoo. I went out tonight do do another colostrum/feeding supplement and the light caught one of the little bucklings (the one with the white belly band) and hes got blue eyes. Now I understand what all the excitement is about. Those eyes are just gorgeous. The pictures I have seen just do not tell just how pretty they are.

    the first is a chamoisee or silver chamoise, the second is a broken chamoisee with white points. Sundgaus have to be black.
    Unless he has nigerian in him he shouldnt have blue eyes. Sometimes standards are born with a cloudy bluish gray eye that go more gold as they get older.

    Nope no Nigerian but those eyes sure do look blue., Mama is Nubian and daddy is La Mancha. I suppose we will have to wait and see what they turn into.
