    So I've been trying to help a family get their daughter involved in showing goats in 4-H They already have some goats, a pygmy and a doe and kid. They aren't really sure what the doe and kid are. I thought you guys might have some thoughts.

    What kind? Adorable.

    How tall is mom. It is really had to tell if she is a full size doe or a mini.

    Haha. MY first answer was adorable as well.

    I'm not really sure how tall they are dine I've only seen pictures. They did say she was much bigger than their pygmy.

    They look like Kinder goats to me. Kinders are cross betwen Pygmy and Nubain.

    Mom apears to be a kinder. I would guess that dad to the kid was more then half nubian as the kid got ears that are more nubian then kinder looking. Kinders tend to just have larger then swiss ears that stick out to the sides known as "airplane ears" like mom is demonstrating. Of course as that kid gets older it may get more of the airplane look.
    Both are really cute.

    Cute kid! The Mom looks like a Kinder and the kid looks like some of what our Mini-Nubians look like.

    If the doe is small, I'd say Kinder. If she's full size, then half Nubian, half Alpine or Ober. The kid looks like it's out of a Nubian buck.
  12. Kinder or mini-nubian. I do have some Kinders with ears like this.

    Wow that kid is SO cute!! I agree with the others that the Mom is probably Kinder or Mini-Nubian, and the kid has more Nubian in it.
