    Aren't Saanens supposed to be white?

    Yes, but this one is a little color confused, lol. We ended up with 1 white one and 1 colored. My wife thought the nubian buck escaped again when she saw the color. :biggrin. Do you use the same color descriptions for sable as you do for alpines? If so, what color would describe this little guy?

    Thanks,
    Ray Adams

    Were pretty sure of the sire since we don't own an alpine buck. Only bucks with color are our nubians, and you can always tell a nubian cross by the ears, :rofl If you look close at the picture you can see a little doeling with a black spot on her side as well ( the one on the far left)

    :biggrin YEP! That's a sable! Dang it, there's "our" Sable...Patty & Camille!!!

    I keep hoping for a Togg colored Sable...my doe's (Saanen) twin brother was Togg colored....yeah, I'll do a DNA just because I have toggs, too...but doe's owner only had Saanens! So, color is in the genes.
