The Sable Saanen is a breed of goat descended from Saanen goats brought to America by Europeans. In 2005, the Sable was recognized as a separate breed. Before they were recognized as a separate breed, they were often culled. They are color variations of Saanens due to a recessive gene; they are sometimes referred "the Saanens in party clothes".
Sables can come in a variety of colors, including black, brown, and grey. They may have white coulourings, but are not permitted to be solid white, as that would be no different from a normal Saanen. Sables are recognized by the American Dairy Goat Assiocation (ADGA).
