    My 12 year old son bought this little demon a couple of weeks ago at a livestock auction. She is/was a bottle baby and has become spoiled rotten. We don't have a clue what breed she is, and since we don't know her background, she may be a mutt for all we know. Does anyone have an idea of what she might be? Thanks in advance.[​IMG][/img]

    Thanks for the replies. I was kinda leaning toward Alpine myself, but I think that she may actually be some sort of "Spawn of Satan". This thing is nuts! If she had thumbs she would rule the world. We do love her dearly though, lol.

    would definately say "mutt" however I would go with the nigerian/alpine cross.. ears look alpine.. stature/coloring/shape of face look more nigie..

    I'd put my money on Alpine. And from my experience with Alpines, they are trouble makers! Have fun with your new goatie. [​IMG]

    I am leaning toward Alpine/French Alpine also. She is just beautiful - love her color.
