She's HUGE!!! That's all I can say, wow. :)We've never had meat goats, so they look like aliens to me when they're that big, lol.

You breed this girl to Chicken, and she wont be able to push out all those baby rears! Good grief, look at that badonkadonk she's got going on!! Imagine how large she will be at a year old... :D

Right.... sure Nancy.. :D

You bet, she's as wide as she looks. That's what all the judges comment on, how incredibly wide she is.

Don't go gettin' me worried now Katelyn...

Dandi is going to be in Liberty's class at the State fair in 2 weeks... Darn. Seems so unfair. Dandi is so BIG! However, the judge who placed Liberty 2nd out of 41 doelings is going to be judging one of the days, so yay for that! I don't think there is any chance of Liberty beating Dandi though.

Impressive Doe. Actually the more I look the lesser topline seems to be an issue right behind the shoulders. I think it was the one pic that didnt show it off well.

The one pic thats at a 3/4 angle and you can see the persons jeans...keep her rear legs at that position when you show her...she is just a SMIDGEN posty legged and that angle and leg set hides it completely.

Thats what a good exhibitor will do ;) just helping out from the judges perspective.

You're probably right Tim... :D Actually I really wanted to get her inspected at this next show since this is our last show of the year, but she'll be too young by a week or two! :(

Thank you JT3! I appreciate that a lot. The last judge did pick one of our younger does over this one because the younger doe was "more correct in her feet and legs", so I do think she noticed the posty legs.?? We'll keep practicing with her to try and memorize what the correct setting looks like with this doe, as the handler. :) We've shown her quite a bit so she is a nice doe to work with.

Could someone please fill me in on what "volume" means in a goat? Is it another way of saying depth of body? I hear it a lot, but am not quite sure what it means...

Volume is 3 demensional. Length, width and depth. A long doe can have a lot of volume. A deep doe can too. Same with wide does but the best is for a proportionate volume to create a well balanced look.
