    i placed a reservation for a 2009 lamancha doe kid from my friend.. well she just got back to me on my choices.. didn't have any pictures of the does kidding, but of their parents and grandparents

    well i placed my 4 choices and i think i did ok.. but i'm not all too great with lamanchas yet

    tell me if i did good


    ok first doe:

    a feb 2008 doe out of her GCH doe, high anxiety by larue's Zodan ( has 2 GCH sisters) and is bred to idol ( buck pictured below)

    idol is by indulgence (last picture)

    Re: if anyone remembers..

    my second choice doe i don't have a picture of her mother.. but i have grandma

    she is an april 2008 doe out of kaboodle( not pictured) by idol (last post) bred to zodan( sire of last doe)

    she granddam and double great granddams tiddlywinks(last picture) who is my favorite but is dying of liver cancer

    maternal grandma is boogie ( black and white doe)



    also what is really cool is that if kabooki (doe i reserved 2nd choice) didn't settle to zodan, she will breed her to a tiddly winks son for me for free and i can just buy kabookie

    Re: if anyone remembers..

    and the last two are kind of either or for me


    one is the full sister to idol ( father of kabooki and bred to aquarius)

    the other is out of iodine.. who has one champion leg and is bred to idol


    don't know if you guys could tell or not.. but i really like idol! and though he's a 2 year old he only needs two legs to finish

    but aquarius and kabooki's kids are 250

    kabooki ( if she isn't bred) is 350

    and idols sister and coffee swirl are 350

    Re: if anyone remembers... i need mancha help

    I think I would have gone the same way as you. First choice would be the doe you posted first, going off her mum who is just WOW - love the good wedge, the capacity of her, the beautifully attached udder and the overall balance and dairy character.

    My second choice would be the second doe, to me (again going by the pic of grandma) she falls behind the first because of less strength to the topline, and less capacity in both the body/barrel and udder. BUT - I really like the fact that if she doesnt settle this time round, you get her bred. I really like getting mature animals already in milk or bred because you know exactly what you are going to get (sometimes kids grow out a little different to what we expected) and they are already in production, so it is less time until you are making some money off them.

    the lady guarantee's top 3rd placement in classes and a mammary score of at least VG on LA.
    she also will replace the animal up to a year after a defect is shown and she will breed for me..

    shes a dear friend and her animals are all really nice and friendly.. i just haven't learned whats what with them yet

    I think they are all great choices, the only thing I see wrong is they appear to be showing a bit of weakness in the rear pasterns, but if these are heavy milking does that is understandable.

    Very pretty animals overall :)

    Can I ask what herd these goats are from? If she has a website, I'd like to look at it. . . . I'm *thinking* about getting a standard doe to breed for mini's. But I may just purchase a mini-mancha or something. I like them. :)

    Re: if anyone remembers... i need mancha help

    If you look at Boogie I've had goats with hooves shaped like that and hooves shaped like that tend to be weaker in the pasterns, I think that Indulgence appears a little bit weak in the back. I am picky with hooves though, if they are heavy milkers though that may account for it.

    she doesn't have a website but she has a myspace with some of her goats... most of them are deceased or dying at the moment... but shes a total herd health nut...

    here's her myspace

    http://profile.myspace.com/index.cfm?fu ... =271969402

    the does who are deceased are:
    CH zill
    GCH high anxiety
    Boogie

    tiddly winks has liver cancer.. so no babies from her

    iodine is sold

    she still has indulgence and inspiration

    and a daughter out of iodine, anxiety ( i get first pick! haha). she has a 07 daughter out of boogie, a 08 grandaughter of boogie, and idols litter mate sister
