    Today my neighbor brought over his 6 yr old female Nubian to Join Mamma goat (the 8yr. pigmy) and the 2 year old male Angora. After the Angora and the Nubie butted head a bit he backed off and Mamma and Nubie went at it for a bit. The youtube video is of the first head butting session. I wantched them for a bit then the went back inside. Mamma goat although smaller seems to have maintained her standing as Herd boss at days end. I was amazed at the power behind such a small goat LOL [​IMG]

    Quote:That's a pure bred pygmy also pure bred nubian and of course the little fuzz ball is a pure bred angora male.

    The little pygmy is the herd queen lol

    IDK - looks like a cross to me. Nubians have longer ears, Lamanchas have elf ears:

    LOL I relate pygmies to shetland ponies - lots of 'tude in a little package. Our herd alpha is a pygmy doe named Sugar [​IMG]

    FarmerMack - I think what we're trying to gently tell you is that the goat in question isn't a Nubian. I see she belongs to your neighbor, so it probably isn't of issue to you...but she is definately not a purebred Nubian. Cute, but not purebred.
