    I've been lazy so this was my first time filling her up last night. So far I am :drool: over her udder.

    So here it is:

    Thanks! I am so excited and happy because the last couple of does that freshened last year were so disappointing.

    Very nice. Love the attachments. It looks like the fore *might* develop a pocket with future freshenings. . . but it might not. Nice doe. :)

    I think your seeing her milk veins and she isn't shaved too well in the fore. She was already pissed off about being on the milk stand with a full udder and no babies. Shaving her would have meant the death of me! :ROFL:

    What freshening is this?

    She has a gorgeous udder, buck kid definitely worthy. Love the height and width in the rear and her height from side profile, nice fore udder as well. Nice doe. Only thing she is lacking is more of a medial. Otherwise she's excellent!

    For a FF udder you should be very proud of your girl, VERY nice! I too would let a buck kid go from a FF with that udder. :thumbup:

    I'm sure she will. It's partly my fault since I got lazy and didn't work with her as much after kidding.

    Thankfully she has nice big orifices, and she is easy to milk if she just stands... it's the getting her to stand thats tricky. I've got bruises on my arms from her kicking and stepping on me despite her being hobbled! :shocked:

    well I have found that to keep from loosing to much milk I milk into a smaller bucket and then dump it into the bigger one. (you probably are doing that anyway)

    Oh, well like I said - It might not. . . just doesn't look as smooth to me as some I've seen. Guess only time will tell. :) I have that same problem with so many of our does! I really hate it when I put them up there and there is the perfect picture shot and then they crouch down and hide the udder! I have a couple that will actually sit on the stand. It's so annoying. :roll:

    Lol, I've had a ton of them that like to sit on the stand. Very annoying.
