So got out today to look over the new alpine and her babies...
You know I'm not a goat expert and i work 10-12 hours a day but how hard is to keep feet trim this poor alpine could spear u with her feet both sides over lap feet are side ways . So got them trim down good enough for now she should feel better.also dusted her down real good she had some nasty foot rot looks like I got it all....
Sorry no pictures started raining and was hard to hold her.
On top of that poor girl fur is rough shape and has some sores so I'm going to shave her tomorrow on my day off...
To get a good look at her been late past few day when I get home hard to get everything done.
Here's a couple up close pictures of her.

Kids are about month old but she looks thin

As a dairy goat, she doesn't look thin to me. She looks to be in good milking condition. Her belly looks tight to me, however. Are you giving a good fill of hay?

I think she could use more weight but does in milk will sometimes put it all in production. That could be how she is. I don't think her coat looks too bad though
