    Okay what are the little pieces of skin which are hanging down on two of my goats. They are about 4 inch below the jaw line and they are not any type of cancerous growths?

    Sorry no picture but I may need to get one to solve my questions.

    Tks Susan

    These are called waddles. They are nothing but goat jewlery.

    They're called "wattles" - absolutely useless decorations! Some goats have them, some don't.

    I have two Nigerian Dwarf does who have them, the twins from one of them don't have them. My Saanen had twins, she and her doeling don't have them, but her buckling does. Go figure. :shrug:
