    Hi Katrina. I am just now getting into Alpines myself. I am no expert but what I see is that she is high in the withers which is nice and she has a long slender neck. Showing her dairy character. She is already showing some depth in the body. She has lots of chest area and her front feet sit under her like they should. Then rear legs look a little off to me but that could be the way they stacked her. Also I don't see any rear udder and I believe that it you should be able to see the udder in 1/3's. 1/3 in front of the leg, 1/3 hidden behind the leg, and 1/3 behind the back of the leg. But she is a FF and doesn't have the udder capacity yet. I think she is a very pretty doe and has a sweet face. She should be a nice start for your alpine herd.

    thanks!
    If I was showing her I would have pinched her down to make her look better.
    I'm not impressed with her udder but she's bred to a very nice buck so hopefully I'll get some improvements!
