    I have a friend who got this goat but we have no idea what breed it is. Any help would greatly be appreciated. We do not know how old she is either.

    She doesn't look like any type of purebred goat that I have ever seen... not that I've seen all of them, but I've been in goats since the 1970s... I think she's mixed breed, and it's kind of hard to say what all is in there. Can you take better pictures of her? Have her stand sideways to you, instead of facing you like this, with a human holding her. That way too it will be easier to tell how tall she is.

    The long hair is reminiscent of a Pygora (Pygmy crossed with Angora) but she does not have a lot of long hair... and I can't tell how tall she is, or what the rest of her looks like from this angle. Sorry, that's the best I can do with this picture for now. [​IMG]

    Looks like a pygmy cross of some sort. Maybe crossed with a dairy breed. She is not a purebred anything.

    I would say pygmy/nigerian dwarf. I have both breeds.
