    I would have to say Nigerian Dwarf crosses, which is a mini dairy breed. Very pretty girls, too! :greengrin:

    Seeing the size of the younger doe with the older one, and both have similar markings, the younger looks to be a cross of nigi with a standard breed...her ears are too large to be all nigi and her height suggests a bigger breed too.

    Very pretty..the color and patterns are very striking :)

    They look like nigerian crosses. I think the older one may be full nigerian, but the younger one definately not...probably has some standard sized breed in there. I have actually seen a boer nigerian cross that looked just like the younger one, just different color.

    the older doe may be purebred nigie. the younger defninatly has something else in her, possibly nubian? id say her sire was probablya mini nubian, she is too tall to be a purebred and her ears suggest nubian.

    Thanks so much for all the help in identifying my girls.

    I am amazed how attached we are to them already, it is the cutest thing to walk up and hear them and see them come running...

    My 7 year old thinks they are the coolest!
