So after I see my does like this it really explained things to me and who I plan to keep and breed. But I want to see what the fault and strengths are so if u don't mind and act like a judge and place them and tell me why unplaced them .

4,2,1,3 is how I would place them:)

The first one I just can't imagine how she is cause yes, like you said, a littl too stretched but that's alright!(;
Second, has GREAT body capacity and her rump isn't that all steep:) nice top line also.
Third, absolutely beautiful! Actually, I think she needs to come to Florida for a few (10) years!(; haha.
Her rump is perfect same with her top line. You said she's heavily bred so idk about her body capacity but it looks like it'd be great:)
Last, I don't really remember her (on my phone) I do remember she was really pretty & looked to have good body capacity. I'd like to see her rump and top line blend more I guess you could say?

Overall I think they're GREAT!:)

3, 2, 1, 4.

3 is the winner in my opinion.
She is very similar to 2, with a nice topline, perfect rump, long neck, straight legs, good length, and nice brisket. She could be a little deeper.

2 places second.
She has a wonderful depth of body, straight topline, ideal rump, straight legs, elegant neck, fair brisket, and strong pasterns. I would like to see a bit more length and style.

1 places 3rd.
She is a bit stretched out, but she seems to have a weak chine, steep rump and small brisket. She does have acceptable body capacity, length, and legs.

4 is last.
OK brisket and depth. Her topline and legs should be straighter, her rump could be flatter. Weak chine.


The younger ones are placed worse, but they may just grow into themselves :thumbup:

Thanks wow this really changed my though of mind. But im still learning what to look at. This is how i thought i placed them. Of coarse ive seen them in person so my perspective would be different. The 2nd doe i was thinking of selling next spring as she was lacking alot in areas. But know if i dont retain a ton of does sh may get to stay the last doe may go though. She has some good bloodlines supposed to have good milk genetics but her body does not blend well are something i dont like.
3rd doe from what ive seen thats how a nigerian is supposed to look. Nice looking topline, good rump and her brisket looks very good.
4th doe brisket looks good and to me she looked good but i know her rump needs work
2nd doe level back but her back end looks short something dont look right to me she has given it to her daughter. Maybe her rump is short and her brisket needs work
1st doe last she is way to stretched out. But brisket is ok i think but she does not seam to blend and her rump is very steep.
