The Alpine Goat is a part of the Ranch themed collection.
Alpine is a breed of domestic goat known for its very good milking ability.
They are multi-colored and have no set markings. They have erect ears, horns, and have a dish-face.
The breed originated in the French Alps. Mature does weigh around 57 kg or 125 lbs, and are about 0.8 m or 30 inches tall at the shoulder. Alpine goats can range in color from white or gray to brown and black. Alpine goats are heavy milkers; the milk can be made into butter, cheese, soap, ice cream or any other dairy product that cow's milk can produce. They are most often used for commercial milking. The French-alpine is also referred to as the Alpine Dairy goat and registration papers for this dairy goat use both designations and they are synonymous. These are hardy, adaptable animals that thrive in any climate while maintaining good health and excellent production. The face is straight. A roman nose, Toggenburg color and markings, or all-white is discriminated against. Alpine colors are described by using the following terms:
Cou Blanc - (coo blanc) literally "white neck" - white front quarters and black hindquarters with black or gray markings on the head. Cou Clair - (coo clair) Literally "clear neck" - front quarters are tan, saffron, off-white, or shading to gray with black hindquarters. Cou Noir (coo nwah) literally "black neck" - Black front quarters and white hindquarters. Sundgau - (sundgow) black with white markings such as underbody, facial stripes, etc. Pied - spotted or mottled. Chamoisee - (shamwahzay) brown or bay - characteristic markings are black face, dorsal stripe, feet and legs and sometimes a martingale running over the withers and down to the chest. Spelling for male is chamoise. Two-tone Chamoisee - light front quarters with brown or grey hindquarters. This is not a cou blanc or cou clair as these terms are reserved for animals with black hindquarters. Broken Chamoisee - a solid chamoisee broken with another color by being banded or splashed, etc. Any variation in the above patterns broken with white should be described as a broken pattern such as a broken cou blanc.
