Pansy (my second gift-goat from Misty Mountain Farm) kidded a little girl yesterday. For all Pansy's skittish ways, the tiny girl is doing ok and figuring things out. I have three reasons to be excited about this kid in particular. 1) It's a girl. 2) It's obviously colored. and 3) It might might
MIGHT be chocolate brown.
For all that the red genes are not recessive, actual chocolate brown is an incredibly rare and very much desired color in colored Angora goats. I'm still saying "might" because a baby's birth color can sometimes be a factor of environment and change in the first week. My best example is Angelina in 2012
, who came out blonde-tipped on top of black and white.
