    We bought two young goats at an auction on Saturday, but have no idea what kind they are. Can you help us out? Their names are Cinnamon and Ginger. Cinnamon has the white on her face. Ginger seems to be older, as she is bigger and has larger horns.

    How big are they? I'll guess this way:

    If they're minis:
    Ginger looks Nigi
    Cinn looks Mini Nubi

    If they're full size:
    Ginger looks Ober
    Cinn looks Ober/Nubi

    Congrats![​IMG] They're both beauties!

    To me Ginger looks Nigerian and Cinnimon looks to be a Nubian cross...both are very pretty...

    Looking at the pictures I would venture to say that GInger is mostly Nigerian and Cinnamon is mostly Pygmy. The light color in her ears is a Nubian trait, but it is also a Pygmy trait and she does not have floppy enough ears to be a Nubian cross, but that is just my scientific wild guess.

    PS Not to mention that a Pygmy is best described as a beer barrel on legs... Look at her conformation.
