    She looks like a pygmy goat. But could possibly be a nigerian dwarf.
    Here are some pics to look at I tried to find the pictures that kinda look like Ivy
    This is a pygmy goat that kinda looks like her.

    It's not a recognized pygmy color, I believe you might have a mix, my guess would be with alpine.

    I agree with @oldhenlikesdogs she has the ears of an alpine goat. So she might be a milking goat!!
