On a rainy Thursday afternoon, Black Eagle Ranch Moon Shadow made his entrance into the world. His dam Astrid is a first time mom but you would never know it because she has done a superb job taking care of this handsome lad. He has his mom’s coloring and moon spots* and his sire Prince Charming’s blue eyes. We also believe that Moon Shadow is polled meaning he will not have horns.
- Moon spots are not symmetrical and are often superimposed over other colors and or even over other true spots. Moon spots are not only randomly placed within the coat of the goat but the amount of moon spots vary from goat to goat. They are genetic and run in lines of goats.
Several of the goats at Black Eagle Ranch have moon spots.
