Hello hopefully all is well! I am located in Portugal and I am interested in buying a few milk goats. I spoke to the owner of this gal, and he doesnt know what breed she is, he told me used her for getting rid of the blackberry bushes he had.
Could someone please help identify this lady?
Also if you know of someone selling some milk goats in Portugal please get in comment or get in contact!

I'm not an expert, I only had goats for a year or so, but her condition doesn't look great. She looks a little too bony and her hair a little too ... something, frizzy? I hope she's free or almost free.

Do you have some pictures of her from the side? how old is she? its hard to guess breed based on a few pictures, but she does seem to be a dairy type. Perhaps a mix? Or a local variety? You could try asking at The Goat Spot forum.

Thank you for the information. I thought the same CJ, he is selling her for a low price, but it might not even be worth it.
Elizabeth I just made an account on the Goat Spot, it's a great forum!
Thank you again for everything!

Dang, I should've been here sooner. She looks like a Nigerian Dwarf from the picts.
