    Adopting this beauty on Friday! Owner thinks she is a Lamancha but after comparing pictures I'm not soo sure! Any thoughts???? Also, does anyone know if a 3 year old can be disbudded?? Those horns are huge!!!!!!

    Well, she has lamancha-looking ears so I'd say she is at least part lamancha. She's pretty furry looking! Disbudding isn't possible at this point, but some people dehorn goats. Look up how to band a goat's horns. Not everyone agrees with it, but I know several people who have done it successfully.

    I would probably have a vet do it so I know it's done right! I can do kids but don't know about older dehorning! I really just wanna know what she is so I can do a ton of research before she gets here! Oddly enough I can't find much of a Lamancha care sheet and the stuff I can find has pics that don't really look like her!!!

    i don't think she is pure anything.
    she is part lamancha
    the other part would be a type of goat that has that type of hair/wool.
