Miniature Painting - No 48 - Nubian Goat
I call this little girl "Nubian Red" even though I'm not quite sure it's a Nubian goat or if they call that color red. Perhaps it's called chestnut, like the horse color? I did some Googling of Nubian goats and this seemed to be the most likely breed, although most Nubians' ears hang down a little more than this gal's ears do. But I kind of like her quirky ears, the way they stick out with little folds and waves here and there. Maybe she's a mixed breed goat? In any case, I think she's cute. I took the photo reference for this painting at the Farrel-McWhirter Farm Park in Redmond, WA.
