    They arent nigerians if theyre that big.
    Ours range from 20" to 23" and maybe up to 65 lbs
    30" and 32" is a big goat.

    Are you sure about the height and weight? Your goats do not look that large compared to the cinder blocks they are standing on/near. My adult boer does are ~125lb and look HUGE next to cinder blocks.

    As soon as it gets light outside, I'm going outside and give them a measure. Height is at front shoulder, is that correct.

    Not all Nigerians are correctly sized, I've had bigger ones.
