Identifying Goat Breeds

Ok so I have these two goats. Both of them stand about 50 cm high and are not getting any bigger. :P

One is completly black with little bits of white the other is a fudge colour brown with black points and a black stripe along her spine.

My question is what breed are they? We got them from the RSPCA so they could be mixed. If any one has any idea I would love to know. THANKS

Mine are the two in the front in this first photo. (not the one with the black and white face)

The brown and black one looks like an Alpine cross.
The Black one I have no clue, probably just a cross of some kind of really funky breed.

How old are they? They don't look full grown but it could be the mix, they often grow until they are four years old. We had a wether go from a little over knee high to almost to our waist when he turned three.

Well the black one has since grown up so he would only be 1 year old and I think the brown one is about 2 or three now... so you could very well be right that they might grow bigger. :)

They could, they are adorable any how. They always seem like they take for ever to grow, than next thing you know the little one you carried in your arms, now can pull a 200 pound man off his feet. Good luck with them, it is always a surprise in the morning around here with my families three.
