    Here is her udder at 2 weeks fresh with 8 hours of milk

    I think it is great for an unregistered ugly doe - really her udder is all that she has going for her

    Since she is not clipped side views are hard

    Stacey, I personally think that Aspen is a very pretty girl AND she has a really good udder too, teats are in thre "right" position and she has a really good medial...rear could be a bit higher but she isn't bad there either. She really looks good!

    I think she has a really nice udder, pretty wide, not as high as I'd like to see(most minis don't have very high escutcheons) teat placement is a little wide but not to bad, nice teat size, and a good medial.

    That's very good for an unregistered doe. She has a beautiful udder, loads of capacity too!

    Stacey, thats great! I'm assuming that you have her kids separated at night? When it gets to the point where you can milk without needing to feed bottle babies you can freeze it and have it for next years kids....or keep it for yourself and enjoy the absolute total yumminess of all the good stuff you can make!

    yes I separate the kids a night and milk in the morning and i use her milk to feed Presto as well as the milk from Sweet Pea. But I leave some in her udder so that Hans and Minuet can nurse.

    So really she was producing more then 3 cups that morning.

    Didn't measure this morning but aprox that amount again.

    Sweet Pea I get "less" from because she is a FF and because I let Kitten nurse almost all she wants then I milk a cup then I let Rhythm and Cadence nurse.

    That does look like a very nice udder for an unregistered doe. Is she the one you were going to sell?
