    What's a "steep" rump? Like, Obviously the goats rump is sloping but I dont quite understand what it looks like...

    Have you got a good explanation and maybe even a comparation pics??
    Thanks.

    Sassafras (pictured on the bottom) her rump looks quite steep, a sharp angle. Iris has a very level rump that does not have a sharp angle but slopes only slightly. Sorry it's hard to explain in words. Maybe someone else can explain it better. . . .

    Oh wow something just "clicked" In my head :idea:
    just before the tail should be flat as possible? If not, its steep, right?

    I seem to like the steep rump ones better ..?
    meh

    lol I dont know why but I never linked the word "Rump" To the actual Rump. I always though. Rump. Back. But her back is straight? Lol

    Now i can finally join in on rump conversations xD How interesting!

    Actually Olivia I don't think her rump is that steep, I think it looks nice, unless its just the angle of the shot.

    If you go there I have all of my appraisal scores(appraisal is a trait evaluation system) E means Excellent, V is very good, + is Good plus, A is acceptable

    Gives you and idea of what rumps should be. I have some what I thought were steep rumped does and the appraiser said they had the nicest shaped rumps in the herd. So go figure :scratch:

    Well that's good to know!! :D It's not so bad I guess, just not as flat as Iris's rump. . . . I didn't set her legs for that shot, just happened to catch her standing like that. She's not friendly so will not allow us to place her legs or anything.
