    They look like Nigerian Dwarfs to me. How tall are they?

    The brown one is the kind that has a BAD worm infestation and needs to be treated ASAP

    The hollow area in front of her hips shows she's losing weight

    Notice the bulge beneath her lower jaw?
    That's "bottlejaw" and is a sign of anemia, caused by Barber Pole Worms.

    Check her inner eyelids and you'll find they are either white or very pale.

    She's also keeping here eyes half closed​

    Actually that picture was from the end of August beginning of September. I rescued these girls and the vet gave them a clean check up. Today they look like they need a diet. But I never heard that kind of goat before and I take offense to you even stating that. To me that was RUDE and you never answered the question so I take it you do not know what kind they are? I never asked you to point out any flaws in them, just what kind they are?

    Quote:It's not rude to point out if an animal is sick... I don't know anything about goats so I can't say, but if something was wrong with one of my animals and I didn't know I'd want to know. I don't consider sickness to a flaw in the animal, but they condition they are in.

    Anyway. Good on you for rescuing them.

    Your original question had already been answered.
    But don't worry.
    If you post another picture of a goat showing symptoms of illness, I'll be "polite" and not say a word [​IMG]
