    This 3 to 4 month old goat was given to me recently and I'm curious if anyone has any idea what kind she might be...

    She kinda looks like my nubian doe. A side view of the nose would help in IDing her.

    I would say either Nubian/Alpine or maybe Boer/Alpine...even Nubian/Nigerian...its really hard to tell. They call her ears airplane ears and it cause for the mix breeding. Depending on her nose as the Nubians and Boers have the roman noses can tell alot. But the ears sticking out its either Alpine or Nigerian. She is a cutie..

    Alpine/Nubian cross would be my guess, she's pretty!

    Thanks everyone for your suggestions and thoughts. She is a cutie. The billy that was in with the herd looked to be a Boer but who knows if that is what breed the mom. He only keep the herd for a few months and they were breed when he got them. Anyway...thanks again for the opinions!

    Those airplane ears are adorable, and she's a neat color. The crossbreeds are great - hardy and unusual.

    Right now I'm keeping a rescue goat for a friend (rescued off a Craigslist ad)...we think she's a Kiko/mini brush goat (what the locals call Pigmies haha but are nowhere near being Pygmies). Who knows...but she's cute nonetheless.
