Wow that Cou Blanc is gorgeous. Makes me want an alpine. I have saanens so I miss color. And then I'll need one nubian for floppy ears and high butterfat......and then......

Thank you Alisa. That Cou Blanc is 9Patch Shazam Shakala. I love the colors too. The flashier the better. The other pictures aren't perfect and a few are pregnant, winter pictures but it shows the colors well.

Chamoise is any form of tan, brown, or silver with black topline, legs, facial markings. White splashes make them broken chamoise.
