    This is a pic of our newest family members, Maybell and Daisy (twins!). They have been a challenge so far. The lady I bought them from talked like they were these sweet, tame little things, but she was wrong, wrong! Maybell is coming around, but Daisy still has a LONG way to go! I am also curious about the breed. The lady I bought them from didn't or maybe better, couldn't, tell me what breed they are. My sister thinks they are so-called "mutt" goats. Their momma had a beard and was as big as a regular size (not pygmy) la mauncha. Same color as the twins. Does anyone know what kind these are?[​IMG] We still love them regardless! Just curious![​IMG]

    They are adorable! [​IMG] Congrats! Once they learn where their food comes from they will start warming up to you. Then they won't let you alone. [​IMG]

    To me they look like pygmies in that photo, only because of their common pygmy coloring. Lamancha's come in miniature as well, so that doesn't really help me guess...lol.

    I love them. They are very cute. I have no idea on the breed. I really want goats. Two more weeks and our neighbor's start having babies. We can not wait.
