    as you can see, she was stuffing her face with hay so it was harder to get a pic. we think she's a Nubian/alpine but i want to confirm that

    it would help to be able to tell, if you'd be able to post a picture of all of her - would that be possible?

    She looks like she could be Nubian/Alpine. How large is she weight/heightwise?

    Yep...I'd say she probably is Nubian/Alpine--she's got the appearance... and that's around the right size right for a yearling of those breeds. She looked small in the pic--but there was really nothing to compare her to, which was why I asked :)

    She could be Nubian X a lot of things... I mean, her colouring is fairly standard nubian, her ears are obviously only partly Nubian. i have a doe that is Nubian X Saanen and she is like this:

    There's no specific colouring about your doe that says she has to be X Alpine... I'd say there would be a few options there?

    Maybe it's just the picture, but she looks a little boxy to be crossed with an Alpine to me. Or is this just me?

    I would agree with you, Dreamchaser... she looks a bit short - as though she could have some mini in her? It could be the picture, though...

    I to think she looks "stalky" and to me she looks like she has pygmy in her.

    I have a nubian x alpine "Oreo" and here she is ...

    Yeah, her facial structure says alpine, minus the half nubian ears. But yeah, I'd say there might be a little pygmy in her to give her that thicker look through the body. Hienz 57! *chuckles* I like alpine nubian crosses though. I will probably cross my alpine with a nubian this fall.
