Pygora Goats
[Return to Topics]

I recently aquired two little goats. People know you have goats, they naturally think you'll take in all the unwanteds too.
I was told they were pygmy, but they have turned out to be Pygora. A cross between pygmy and angora. My question is, does anyone know if they naturally have a dark black colored tongue? Do angora's have dark tongue's? I've looked at all sorts of photos, and info, just no mention of the tongue.
They seem healthy otherwise, eating very well and quite active, just like the rest of the herd.
I do know that dark tongues are a sign of bad things in normal goats, just don't know bout these. You know, like a chow dog having a blue tongue.
Any help will be appreciated, save me from hauling them up to the vet, just to find out it's normal.

I am on a Yahoo message board for pygmy goats so I posted your question. Below is the reply I received. Hope this helps. Kathy

Well, I've noticed that some of my pygmies have all
pink tongues and some have pink tongues with black
spots. I don't think that the dark tongues is a
problem, it's just the natural color of their tongues.
I have a friend who has pygoras and I will forward
this message to her.

We had an Angora ram, and he had a pink tongue, perhaps it's something to do with the cross breeding.
