    Yeah the ears are throwing me.. Generally Nubian you get the floopy ears and also with Boer goats. The white you can get with Nubian but also I didn't even think of Saanen which is another dairy breed that is white/cream.

    I'm still saying my first thought was some Nubian, and then I see what looks like meat breed as he is not very dairy looking to me. If it's ok I can repost the pictures in a goat forum I belong to that has breeders of all types of goats. There are enough folks on there to get a general consensus.

    Guess I should of asked how tall he is as sometimes pictures throw off heights a lot. From what I'm seeing he looks standard sized. Pygmy are tiny little stocky things because they are a meat breed. Kinder is a Pygmy/Nubian cross so could be.

    Anyways he is cute and I posted his pictures on the forum I belong to. Will let you know outcome or PM link!

    We have no use for him,lol. We have been trying to trade for him a couple of hens,rabbits or something.

    He is standard sized and I dont see pygmy in him, but thats what we were told.

    It's still early on the goat forum but so far the guesses are 1. Nubian x with 2. Kiko or 3. Saanen.

    I really don't see an ounce of pygmy if he is standard sized, maybe if he was shorter.

    He has a dairy face and a meat body.

    Will post more as I get more responses.
