not bad -- would like to see the milkers rear udder but her for udder looks smooth in that picture.

Not sure on the milker doe though with her back -- it isnt very level, her rump is higher then her withers.

I like one of the doe kids -- the one pictured from the front -- she looks fairly level something you dont see much of over there I am noticing

shirelle, I'd like to see pictures of them, and also have the following questions answered:

- are they registered, if so what bloodlines?
- are they tested -ve for cae and jd
- what do their mum's yield
- are they disbudded
- have they been joined
- were they dam raised or bottle raised

All in all, $150 could be very very cheap if they are good goats. But the price is pretty indicative of what you get re dairy goats in Australia - at that price you are probably looking at decent home milkers, probably registered but not show goats - and probably doing 2 - 3L per day, you wont get the huge producers for that price. Really when you start looking at the good show registered goats, and the big producers they are around $400 - 600. But, most people dont really need those ones.

did you Check the link?
they are the only photos I can get (I have a feeling they are not very pc illiterate)
they are cae free accredited but not Johnes.
I know they may not be show goats...And I don't care about that..I'm not going to be showing them...
they are registered
2 sets of twins
Twins born 30.9.09 Adabel breeding sire and dam.
Twins born 21.9.09 Ellendean breeding sire and dam

glad you brought up these q's
- what do their mum's yield
- are they disbudded (by the look of the pics I'd say they are)
- have they been joined
- were they dam raised or bottle raised
