In an effort to make registering a goat easier there are now just 7 color choices: caramel with black markings, caramel with brown markings, grey agouti, brown agouti, black agouti, black, and solid black. It is no longer necessary to assign a shade such as light, medium or dark.
The caramel color pattern can range FROM white to caramel hairs, intermingled with white in the top coat making the top coat appear to be a shade of white/cream to tan. The undercoat has the same base color (black or brown) as the dorsal stripe, socks, and face accents. Caramels are required to have vertical stripes on center front of socks same color as body topcoat.
CARAMEL WITH BLACK MARKINGS The caramel pattern with face, sides and rear of socks, dorsal stripe and martingale accented in black.
CARAMEL WITH BROWN MARKINGS The caramel pattern with face, sides and rear of socks, dorsal stripe and martingale accented in brown.
All agouties have solid stockings darker than the main body color (black stockings on grey agouti, brown stockings on brown agouti). Muzzle, crown, eyes and ears distinctly accented in white and may be intermingled with hairs in the same color as the body.
GREY AGOUTI: The grey agouti color pattern can range FROM black and white hairs intermingled with slightly more white hairs to give a light grey color, making the topcoat to appear to be silver/pewter in shade TO a darker grey appearance with fewer white hairs but still a salt and pepper appearance is pronounced.
BROWN AGOUTI: The brown agouti pattern can range FROM brown and white hairs intermingled with slightly more white hairs to give a lighter grizzled brown color TO mainly brown hairs with only occasional intermingled white hairs.
BLACK AGOUTI: Black mainly with only occasional intermingled white hairs.
All blacks have solid black stockings.
BLACK: Solid black except for muzzle, crown, eyes and ears distinctly accented in white. The tail may be accented in white.
SOLID BLACK: All black with NO lighter accented tones on the muzzle, crown, eyes, ears, or tail.
