    [COLOR=Yellow]She is a med size goat. black smooth hair to her knees, brown belly to her throat. She has boer type ears, her face is black with brown lines going up on both sides. She has 2 white sopts on her side, they are about 3x3.
    She dry. Her teats are different from that of my boers, bigger thicker. I hope i can get a photo on soon.

    Do you have the photo on a different web site you can link to?

    Maybe you can try giving a verbal description.

    there are several people on here who could tell you probably what kind of got she is , but your picture didn't come through. sorry. IF she still has a bag, are you milking her, She is probably drying up, by now or starting too. watch for mastitis, in that udder.

    Some of my Boers will come out either paint (brown and white, like a horse) or solid. Alot of it has to do with the foundation stock since alot of the first Boers came from semen brought overseas before the goats made it over. It was also cheaper in the beginning to breed full bucks to milk does.

    If I did it right, here is a link to a picture of this year's doelings. You will see a solid on the right. She is brown with black legs and ears with white spots on her side, and little white feet.
