    I don't know how answerable of a question this is as I'm sure it is very related to proportions, but from reading, I am gathering that long bodies in a ND doe is really desirable.

    Are there any type of numbers out there regarding desirable length? Or height to length ratios that are considered ideal?

    If any of you have pictures of ND does you own with nice length of body, please share!

    Little Sleepy H Sweet Pea:
    [​IMG] LOVE Her length -- she resembles so much a standard dairy goat with her length and build

    God's Love Farm Angie
    [​IMG] For her size she is long but seh is still on teh petite size in my opinion

    Noah's Acre's Lola
    [​IMG]
    lola is very proportionate and has fairly good length -- not the total body type I love but many judges and breeders like this type.

    Little Wishes Cafe Mocha
    [​IMG] Short bodied - needs more length

    Phoenix Rising Farm MaskOfZoro
    [​IMG] very proportionate and I expect him to grow fairly long and dairy


    Reluctant Acres Hope (Jitterbug)

    this girl is very dairy and long -- even more so now then in this picture. She is a mix of Sweet Pea and Lola's builds. I like her a lot (except for her weak chine)

    These are great examples that are really helping me to learn. Anyone else have any to share?
