Hard to say about the pregnant part - does she have any udder development? Goats usually don't show until the last 2ish months although my LaMancha has been HUGE for 2 months & isn't due until the end of March. Is she smaller?  If she is smaller, maybe a Nigerian Dwarf cross. If larger, maybe an Alpine cross. I first though Boer cross but her ears go the wrong way :).

Goat gestation is 150 days for full size goats, 145 for Nigerian Dwarfs and pygmy. The udder may not drop until around freshening. It doesn't look like a Nigerian Dwarf, maybe if crossed with a Boer, or even Boer and Pygmy cross. Good luck.
