    There are more but my camera's batteries died so I will get to them in a few days. Are the first 2 pics ok for the online show? I know they're not the greatest. I love how they look all shaved though,and they're so smooth! :)

    She looks very becoming in her new haircut....The pics look fine to me...maybe get a rear shot too.

    Wow! You did a great job clipping! A rear shot would be great too! ;)

    So, there is some kind of online goat show?? That would be so much fun!

    Do you have to clip them to put them in the online show - or does it jsut help?

    I would love to put China on there - but she is 4 weeks from delivery and I have never clipped before - I don't want to scare her.

    Oops,forgot this one! :wink: I also meant to ask what would you predict of the girls' udders? I know Munchies pic isnt very good,she was turning to come to me,and if youd like you can critique them. :)

    This is what I think about the udders but I could be way off.. lol
    Munchie- high,tight,but small with small-ish teats but as a 2nd freshener will improve a good bit
    Kissy- decently attached udder,with more capacity as a FF but not as much as Munchie later,and nice,easy to milk teats

    Thank you Stacey, I really like her color to. :) She is a bit thin though,the vet agreed,he had to come do our vet checks for fair today,so we wormed her,he thinks thats what the problem is,and she should be a bit better in a few days,then fair is Monday! :)

    Actually,my mom clipped them because she grooms dogs,but Im learning because Im on my own after this,and I have a show in September,not sure if I'll clip for that to,probably not,it'll be getting cold. Yepp theres an online show,these girls are going to be in it. :)

    I keep adding on,oops. lol :) I wondered if its possible to register Kissy as a experimental,would anyone help me with that? Id like to take her to a show in September,but she'd need to be registered by then.

    if neither of her parents are registered she can be registered as a native on apearance, in which case you need and adga member to write a letter saying they have seen the goat and that they mostly conform to whatever breed standard. take a good close look at her and write down all her alpine traits then write down her nubian traits. which list has more, that would be the breed i would choose to keep going with.
