She's beautiful Hailee! She's built a lot like my Heidi, with a lot of leg! :wink: I'll have to agree with Stacey that maybe if you pinch her down in the right spot she'd look a touch better. I think the front and rear pics will really help though.
ADORABLE. She is cute as ever. I have to say that I think she has a really bas slope to her back end. It could be the way she is standing, and like Stacie said, straighten out the back and that might go away a little
She is very pretty love her coloring Here's what I think about her confirmation:
Set up pic, she looks to be short bodied, when she's not set up she looks fine. She has nice body capacity, dairy character and general appearance. She looks like she's pretty tall for her age. Her withers could be a little sharper but they blend nicely into her long neck. Her topline is very level. Her rump angle is a little steep but a better angle does come with age. She is standing on very strong feet and legs, she has good strength in her back pasterns.
I'm suprised she doesn't trip over those ears!! lol
LOL I can't imagine what I looked like my first show :lol:
I like your hair, at least it isn't long and frizzy like mine :shock:
I was talking about Hailee's goat above, but here's what I think of Lyric(the better pick :wink: )
Lyric is very long in body and has a nice topline. I'd like to see it a touch more level but that comes with age. Her withers are sharp and blend smoothly into her long neck. She has good general appearance, body capacity and dairy character. I'd like to see a bit stronger feet on her though.
I wish I could get some LaManchas that color, I'm so tired of black and black and tan. I want splashes and spots!!! lol Caesar should fix that, along with everything else :wink:
Looking at Lyric, it looks like she needs a pedicure and it would make her feet look stronger. Upon closer inspection, since her toes are a bit long, it gives you the optical illusion that her pasterns are weak. Could also be the stand, those stands make my goats' feet look bad too. Shadow's feet look better because you can see that she has deep pasterns(thats a good thing) and the flat surface shows that a lot better.
You're right about her needing trim, but my dad managed to lose my clippers so I have to find some other way to trim them, any suggestions? I love the colors too! Although I've been wanting one that was black with cream trim. Lyric has little splash on her left leg that goes up on the inside, but that's all the color she has. Have you seen Lyric's parents? Lyric is also 10 months old now! I don't remember how old she is in that pic.
I feel like I've stolen Hailee's thread, I'm sorry!
Thanks everyone for responding!
Crissa, you didn't steal my thread! I love hearing about your sheep and Lyric and Heidi. I liked the pic you posted. You have some nice hair!
goathappy, Stacey, and sweetgoats, thanks for the pointers.
That's also how Lyric used to be, just work with her some more. Like keep moving it where you want it until she leaves it for a minute and reward her. By the way I cut my hair! And it's already almost back to that length! :shock:
