    He looks like he is a Chamoisee (well Chamois for boys) and then add "with random white" or "white overlay"

    here are some face pics but im not sure if they are any help, one is when he was a day old and the other is kinda far.

    But isnt a chamois colored goat supposed to have black lower legs or something like that? im new to the nigerians and have no idea really, but i just have seen that before. But this buckling's lower legs are just a darker brown, no black on him.

    maybe he is just brown with white, i just wanted to be as accurate as possible or didnt know if there was a specific term for his coloring. Thanks for the replies!!

    He is probably going to turn gold. I have a buck that throws the same colored kids all the time and they always turn gold

    thanks yall! his dam is the white one on the left in the bottom pic, she is a light gold and white in the summer but looks completely white in the winter. the sire is actually the exact color of the doeling on the right in that same pic, a splash of black, brown, and white.

    If his dam is white/gold then i'd say for sure your buckling will turn a light gold.

    I have some photos of my kids that turned gold on my other computer...they look really similar....when I get back on there I can post them.
