Debating on registering this doe NOA with ADGA. Her sires papers were lost in a divorce and she was never registered. But I would like opinions first. Do you think she has breed character? What faults do you see that could be improved on/ maybe shouldn't try to register her?
Thanks!

She doesn't look too bad :) I like her long neck, her long legs, and body capacity. She has nice brisket extension. I would like to level her top line out and her rump also. I would like to see sharper withers, smoother blending of the neck, and maybe a tad more rear leg angulation... Now... what doe her udder look like?

Thanks for the response! I bought her after she had dried up from her first kidding so I haven't seen her udder in milk. But dry, her teats are a nice size with excellent placement, and very symmetrical looking. I was told she had a nice high and tight FF udder, but I'll have to wait till February to see for myself how it fills out. She has room back there though. Fingers crossed.

Her dam was there, also dry, but her dry udder looked just like this does, at 6 yrs old. Not meaty or stretched, even teats and strait middle line. She was my first goat ever to buy. I did ALL the research, read all the books, then just went out and bought the first pretty, sweet, and healthy doe I saw. Lol. Thanks for the input on her!

Sounds like she has the potential for a nice udder ;) :)
