Folded Ear Normal Ear


The ear on the left is a folded ear - see the difference in how the bottom of the ear splits from the base of the skull. The picture below is the folded ear in a normal position. In a boer goat (Fullbloods) this is considered a cull fault, but this doe is still valuable as a commercial doe.
