    Today we were talking about what kind of goats we have. We are not sure so I thought I would get some expert opinions!
    First up: Lucy, she has blue eyes 20200120_112210.jpg

    She looks like a Nigerian dwarf or maybe a pygmy. I am not sure. Others can probably help more.

    She could be a Nigerian, or nigerian crossed with something else. Pygmy's don't have blue eyes.

    I don’t know if pygmies have this colouration (buckskin), but my ND buckling looks very close to this one.

    That's good info to know. I didn't know Pygmy's don't have blue eyes. I wonder why?

    She is about 30 inches from ground to spine. She is not a Pygmy, I don't believe.

    Coloring is Pygmy. I'm sure she is a mix. Probably some type of Pygmy mix.

    Thank you! She is my favorite but the lowest ranked in our herd. We didn't even know she was pregnant so Rockette was a bonus baby for us! Here is a picture from yesterday. 20200731_093714.jpg
