That is true. However she is not a bottle baby and quite wild. Like screaming when you touch her wild. I have to lead them out into the pasture every day. They don't think they are goats. I take my reading out there and sit with them so they will graze.

How old is she? She looks nice. Long dairy neck, stands well with an uphill look to her. She's long bodied but I'd like to see some more depth in the rib and barrel. Otherwise she looks great in my opinion!

I really like maple. A lot. I really like both of the does in that they are extremely angular and dairy. Both correct feet and legs from what I see. Broad chests. Both have slightly steeper rumps, I like Maple's better.

Maple has excellent heart girth and depth of body. Your first is too young to show the depth yet, but I would guess those ribs will drop and surprise you. Very flashy girls. I would like a bit more goat from nose to pins on the first doe.

Overall I would have to pick Maple as the better doe, but it's unfair because she's more developed. She's just longer, deeper, taller, uphill, an overall correct doeling.

I think I like Wildling's rear Pasterns and brisket better.

Mjs-thanks!! The funny thing is that maple is younger than wildling! She is a month younger so not much, but a little bit. I have always favored Maple. She is my yard goat and follows me around to do chores.

Really! She looks far more mature and elegant for her age then! Wow! I'm speechless!

I love the black doe! Super pretty and uphill with great feet and legs. Rump is a teeny bit steep. She's gorgeous!

Maple is gorgeous too! Maple's rump is maybe a bit smoother, but both are really angular and dairy. And correct feet and legs. Two really nice girls! It will be hard to tell which one is better until they develop more.
