    This is a doe we used to own and recently sold. We are thinking about buying her back. This is her second freshening udder, 12 hour fill. She is a Nigerian Dwarf, unregistered.

    looks well attached, maybe if the teats were pointed more forward, any side pics?

    Unfortunately no :( It was a spur of the moment picture. Then we had to hurry and milk her. lol (We weren't too interested in the milking aspect back then(this was about 8 months ago).

    Actually, she looks pretty good, nice wide rear attachment, could be a bit higher but her teats are nice sized and medial isn't too bad.
    If her production and form is what you want, breeding her to a buck that can improve her would be beneficial because even as un registered kids from her would do very well as a family milker.

    Awesome! Thank you guys! Might just have to call the guy that owns her now to see about getting her back. :)

    for a family milker/kid producer she looks nice

    I like her rear attachment - could use better medial and teat placement BUT those teats look easy to milk which is a huge plus

    Yes, they were easy to milk. :D

    Well, called the new owner and they said they liked her too much to part with her now! LOL Ohh welllll. I'm sure I'll find a doe just as nice as her or better :)

    Good capacity, good sized teats, nice and wide and attached decently high. I'd like to see her teats a more centered, but not bad at all. ;)

    To bad they won't part with her...she seems like she'd make a great addition for ya. Let us know if they change their mind and you bring her home! :D

    only things that look like they need some help are the teats.. i'd like them to point in a bit more. maybe a tad stronger in the MSL. other than that she looks pretty good

    Thank you both for your opinions! I hope one day she will part with her :)

    SDK- What is the MSL? :)

    I think it is very nice. Good luck! I wish I could find people to take a few goats for me so that I could get them back later. I have been thinking about leasing some goats, since I don't have that much space.
