    I adopted her from animal rescue. She was living in New York City. She is skinny and skittish, but very sweet. Her name is City Goat.

    I can't tell how big she is but she could be a buff sannen or a Nigerian/nubian cross... airplane ears usually means Nubian somewhere in the bloodline.

    She is beautiful though!

    could be one of many crosses.

    she has aeroplane ears - they are neither prick ear nor lop ears. So chances are she is a cross between a prick eared breed (Saanen, Nigerian Dwarf would be high on my list depending on her size of course, which I cant judge from this photo) and a lop eared breed (Boer, Nubian, even Cashmere or Angora)

    She is taller than a pygmy but shorter than a nubian. She is seriously underweight - she weighs about 40 pounds and she is several inches taller than my biggest pygmy boy.

    Quote:since she's taller than the mini boys, I think you can rule out mini breeds such as the nd. the horns and the face tell me she's only young - so she's def. got more growing to do and I'd say she's standard size.

    I'm suspicious that she's saanenxboer or maybe saanenxnubian ... I've seen goats of both heritages that look like her

    Do you have a pic from the side, and also one showing a side profile of her head?

    if you can post a picture of her from the side I might be able to identify City Goat's breed.[​IMG]

    I will try to get one. It may take a while as she doesn't hold still when I get close to her.
