    Could you tell me, from what you can see, how this one measures up? I know she needs to be shaved, but it is still a bit chilly here.

    she looks to have decent capacity. Is she a FF? It is hard to see a medial - so that might need a bit, can't see foreudder due to hair, teat placement looks a bit wide -

    But for milking - looks like you got a pretty nice girl there.

    Now I am NOOOOOO pro - so hopefully others will have more thoughts for you.

    Attachments could be a bit wider and higher, teats larger and placed closer to the medial. . . that's about all I can see under the hair. :) I understand not shaving them yet though.

    Thank you :)

    I guess I should add that she is a Nigerian.

    Awesome capacity! With 2x a day milking I bet you get at minimum 2qts a day from her!

    Her teats could be a bit larger and a tad more of a rear attachment, but she looks good!

    Teat size sometimes improves with each freshening.

    Boy you don't need to tell me her teats need to be bigger, I think the same thing every morning. :wink:

    I have not milked her out all the way yet. I really want to now.

    Thanks everyone!

    I think if you had her shaved you would see that her rear attachement is much wider then it looks. I love the capacity on her.

    Yay, teat size usually does increase....I noticed the teats get bigger farther along in lactation,might not be true.. :shrug:
