    I absolutely hate when goats are not proportioned correctly...like when their head and neck are to big for the rest of their body. I also really dislike when their rear legs have no bend to them/ straight legged.... can't think of the word...I am so tired today! :ZZZ:

    For me a peeve I have is when a goat looks NOTHING at all what the breed standard says it should be....and regardless of how it looks, the udder is my first focus.....nothing worse than milking a mini whose udder hangs in the bucket! Thankfully none of my girls do this, but I have seen minis with awful attachment.

    Perhaps it's picky, but I really don't care for wattles or oversized teats.. I also don't like steep rumps for the reputation of difficult kiddings.
