General Height Standard

On all mini breeds the required minimum height for American and Purebred shall be:

Minimum height:   Does:  23 in.  Bucks:  24 in.

Measurements are taken at the highest part of the withers with the animal standing in a normal stance.

For Maximum heights view the Breed Standard for your breed.


Please note:

Not making breed character will not affect your ability to register animals within the experimental registry. 

Many times the first couple of generations will not conform to breed standards, especially with the color breeds, Mini-Oberhasli, Mini-Saanen, and Mini-Toggenburgs, or in ear set in the Mini-LaMancha and Mini-Nubian. 

If they do not have the correct breed character by the 3rd generation or if a higher generation does not conform, they can still be registered as an experimental with an * after their registration number showing that they did not conform to breed standard.
