    My husband picked up this pretty little lady at our local livestock auction, but silly him he never asked what breed she is. All he knows is she is a dairy goat. From what the person he bought her from told him she is about 4 months old. Her name is Dodge and she is a little sweetheart. Follows me like my shadow and loves my kids. Gets so excited to see me each day and does this little happy run (she runs and jumps kinda sideways) when she comes out everyday to munch on all the plants and grasses in our field. We are thinking about breeding her when she is a little older for milk purposes and so she can have her kid as a companion (right now her companions are our 3 little pigs, our chickens, and ducks).

    Alpine or AlpineX was my first guess too. She is so cute--I love that little "goat-dance" they do. Have fun with her.
