    I'm trying to decide if I really like this doe kid or not. She's ADGA registered, she doesn't look TERRIBLE to me, but she doesn't look fantastic either. (but of course it's not the greatest picture either) I asked for pictures of the dam and sire as well. But what do you guys think?

    I think she is very nice looking, very long and level with good sharpness to her withers and she has a nice rear leg set. I wouldn't decide until I saw pics of hte dam and her pat. granddam.

    She looks pretty good. It's so hard to tell with furry kids that don't want to stand, though. Definitely wait to see what the dam and sire look like. Also, what's her pedigree?

    Re: Doe possibility?

    I will definitely wait to see sire, dam, and sire's dam. I asked about the pedigree too Dover Farms, I'm just waiting on them to respond. :wink: Is it bad that one of the reasons I want her is her color? :oops: I've never seen one that color. (imagining breeding her to Orion, :drool: )

    Good I'm not alone! lol I know it would be bad if it was the ONLY reason though. This doe kid just reminds me of an Appaloosa horse though.

    Oh she's so pretty! I'd be tempted to buy her myself if I was a nubian girl.

    Re: Doe possibility?

    There are things i like about her and things i dont like. The first thing i noticed are her nice long ears. She has good breed charecter. A nice long dairy neck blending into tight shoulders high withers and a deep brisket. Her over all length and depth of body are good. Her head is being held to high causing her chine to look dippy. Her legs are stretched too far foreward in front and too far back in the back. I would like to see a more level rump on her. She toes out quite a bit in both front and back. Did they send yu front and rear pictures of her? What about the sire and his dam? Or her dam?

    Re: Doe possibility?

    Wait! I got some pictures of the Sire and Dam. Not too crazy about her dam, but I like the buck. I asked if I could get front and rear pictures of them all. They're waiting on the pedigree.

    Re: Doe possibility?

    I don't like her dam, but the sire seems to have improved over her in things like her topline and body length.

    Re: Doe possibility?

    they both arent bad looking goats. I think if the dame was stretched out a bit more she would level out. But she could use more rear leg angulation. Sarah is right the sire seems to have passed on some of his traits.

    Re: Doe possibility?

    Yep, I agree. I like the sire's general look. I think if the dam were punched down a bit she'd look quite a bit better, but still not as nice as I was hoping. I just want to look at that darn pedigree! lol I really REALLY like this doe kid. She is in Texas though, but she's a great price so I'm hoping it works out!
