    I was just looking around for some nice looking goat breeds and came across this...PLEASE prepare yourself as these are indeed goats but not what you expect to see...I wouldn't call them beautiful.

    ETA: They are a Damascene Goat. So I think the pics are real. PLEASE someone let me know if this is in fact a REAL breed.

    Its strange, because of you google "Damascene goat" there really isn't that much information on them. Definitely nightmarish...

    I wonder what kind of complications they have. I would imagine they have breathing problems like English Bulldogs and such.

    I'm sure thats something thats done to them at birth and they are probably taped or penned to stay that way.
