The genetics of Nigerian Dwarf coloring
Cris Waller of Foxcroft Nigerian Dwarf Goats wondered why people said the coloring of ND goats was unpredictable. From that curiosity, a research project was devised. In this paper, reprinted by Buffalo Creek Farm, Waller breaks down the color pattern combinations found in goats, ND goats specifically, in an attempt to clarify why one goat is one color while a related goat is a different color altogether. If you’d like to try to breed for a particular color pattern, this is a good place to start your research.
