Alpine Goat Colors

Please note that the color pattern is based on what the goat looks like when they are shaved. As their hair grows out, some of the black can fade to brown and some of the white can darken.

Cou Blanc (coo blanc): literally translated “white neck”, these goats have white front ends and black hindquarters. They have gray or black markings on their heads.

Cou Noir (coo nwah): literally translated “black neck”, these goats are the opposite with black front ends and white hindquarters. We've never had a goat with these color markings.


Pied: spotted or mottled. We've also never had a Pied goat.


Sundgau (sund gow): black with white markings on face, legs, and ears.

Two-tone Chamoisee: These goats are similar to cou blancs and cou clairs, except the colors are shades of brown without any black as the dominant color (black markings are typical).

The color patterns don't affect how our goats milk. But they sure make them more fun to look at!
