La Mancha

The American La Mancha is the youngest breed and the only totally American dairy breed, with the registry started in 1959. Short-eared Spanish goats living in herds on the West Coast were bred to top sires of other breeds in the 1920s and 1930s. The original breeders envisioned a thrifty milk goat, compact like the Toggenburg, but very broad in the chest with deep open ribbing. The head should be broad with a powerful muzzle and a flat face with ''gopher ears,'' i.e., nonexistent or very short.[3]
