She's cute. But what does she add to your herd? What direction do you want to go? What does her dam's udder look like? How much is dam producing. I would really figure out what you want to do with your goats - goals, purpose, etc. She's pretty, but not really put together well with her conformation from what I can see from this pic. If you only want cute and pretty for pets she's fine.

She doesn't have great conformation but mostly interested in her as a pet/ companion for my doe Scarlett who sadly lost her sister. And her Dams udder is great but I dont know how much she is producing. My goal with my goats since I started raising them was to raise pet goats for people around the place were i live because everyone is always wanting goats around here and since I raise pet goats i don't really go off of conformation all the time tho, it is nice to have good conformation on my goats. Last winter i only bred one doe but this winter i will be breeding all my 9 does and milk them to bottle feed their kids and sell as bottle babies so I can use the milk

Well congrats on possibly getting another one. I love how you are always buying goats! 😂 I would do the exact same thing if my parents would let me.

9 dairy goats is a lot to handle, even if dam raised if you plan on milking by hand. After kids are weaned you still need to milk twice if good production, or at least once a day. Lots of time, grain, hay, etc....... so really think about how much time and $$ you have to invest. Best wishes in figuring out what is best for you!
