WHAT IS A NIGORA? (It's a goat that is a cross between a Angora and a Nigerian.)

This past year, 2010, I was again blessed to have some nigora's born. My other older doe finally took when bred to the same Nigerian buck. She produced twin Nigora doelings. One is more petite then the other and has blue eyes, while the other has a fiber that is crimpy and closer resembles the Angora side of her bloodlines and she has brown eyes and stands a little taller than her sister. They are both staying at our place and I named them Mia and Gia after the first initials of my girls first names. Mia is friendlier than her sister Gia, which I believe is taking after the Nigerian part of her bloodlines. I have found that even though Angoras are pretty easy to work with they are not the friendliest goats where as the Nigerian goats can get very friendly.
These two are my twins, Mia and Gia, born this last year. Aren't they cute!
For this spring 2011 I've exposed my mostly black nigerian doe with my two tone colored small angora buck. I'm hoping and praying for a nigora buck out of this pairing. If so then I'll have something unrelated to my nigora does from this past year so I can breed for F2 Nigoras for 2012. I have also exposed my Angora does to my Angora buck and then my Nigerian buck for a back up. We'll see what I get out of those. Please feel free to check my farm website in April to see what I have had born. I'll have a 2011 baby page set up
