That solid red doe, by far has the nicest conformation. I'd go for a kid out of her. The other adult goats all are built downhill with steep rumps and weak chines and toplines.

The kids look healthy. Their conformation isn't the greatest, but they're not terrible. They sure are cute! When judging kids, I go more by what the sire/dam look like, along with udders and pedigrees. They change so much as they grow.

Thank you for the replies. After you pointed out the flaws on the doelings and their dams I did more reading on what to look for. I've decide to pass on the 3 doelings for now because the breeder has more does due to kid soon. I may go a head and get the older doeling but I'm still not 100% as of right now. I'd rather not buy than buy something that wont produce show quality and good milkers. I'm still building my herd so I want to take my time and get the right goats. I'd get you to critique my buckling but he has hit his UGLY stage. He doesn't even looking like the same boy I bought. I was told his sire went from a small buck to big man pretty fast so I'm hoping Squirt does like his daddy. I love his Goldthwaite pedigree on his Sires side and I'm hoping he will give me many kids to add to my herd. Again thank you for the input and maybe one of these days I wont have to bother y'all for conformation info. :) I went ahead and added a pics of Squirt. First was taken right before I picked him up. Second was taken 5 days ago he was cold so that makes him look even worse. http://www.adgagenetics.org/GoatDetail.aspx?RegNumber=N001654142 This is his Sires pedigree. In the process of registering Squirt now. Thanks once more for the help.
