Kimberly I would say that your goat definitely has some boer blood, don't see much in the way of pygmy characteristics there. 70 pound does are a rare thing amongst todays pygmies. My biggest stoutest old lady weighs a chubby 65 when she is about 4 months preggers. Pygmy bucks on the other hand can easily push 80 to 90 pounds when in show condition. I've seen a few boer/pygmy crosses (its nearly always an OOPS breeding) And the boer coloration seems to be dominant, Dark on the head and neck with a white body. Alot of people seem to pass off smallish, runty scrub goats as being pygmies. Perhaps from not knowing any better themselves. We are still asked alot at the fair if a pygmy goat is a breed unto itself or just any small goat...For pictures of REAL pygmies check out my website below!
