Hi all!
This is probably a silly question but I was curious and couldn't find the answer online. I was reading the ADGA's breed standards (http://adga.org/breed-standards/) for some breeds of goats (specifically Nigerian Dwarves since that is what I mainly have) and noticed it said,

"..The face is either straight or dished.."
What is a straight face? Or dished face?:what::shrug:

I've never seen/heard of a straight or dished face on a Nigerian Dwarf (just never noticed it) so if anybody could share a picture I would really love to see it!

Thanks so much in advance! :)

Sorry this is a silly question..

Think of a boer with a roman nose. That's the breed standard, but there are also boers with straight heads. A dished head is when the nose dips in - which is the exact opposite of a roman nose.
