    2 weeks old:

    Different mamas, same daddy. Any ideas what could be the hertiage of the second one? She has some black stripes on her face that the parents do not have.

    Well, they both look Boer, if that's what you mean...(and adorable; I could never raise meat goats)

    Both look boer, but the dark coloring could be some spanish goat influence. Out babies out of a spanish/boer mother had some interesting color combos.
    They are gorgeous!

    You can get those black markings in fullblood boers. I've got a sth af fullblood buckling atm with a red head and those black marks.

    The second one ... well its unusual for a fullblood to have that light a colouring, and that little colour on the head, and have the pink skin on nose and bum but having said that, it does happen.

    I'd hazard a guess that she is very very high % if not purebred.

    But there's no way to tell for sure. I guess what I am trying to say, going by colour alone she could be fullblood, purebred, high % or even 50% boer.
