No - the "ideal" is usually the middle picture. Let's just take rumps, you don't want the first pic, the second pic has the proper angle, the third pic is too uphill. The final appraisal score is scoring against ideal for the breed, so a final score is important to look at. You can look up goats that you know have outstanding scores, such as 92 EEEE and go into ADGA genetics to look at the breakdown and scores for each category for that particular goat.

When my appraiser came through a few months ago she explained at as there is no ideal, there’s high extremes and low extremes. If we are talking in terms of rump angle for example, 45-50
Points is EXTREMELY level, 1-5 would EXTREMELY steep. She told us typically you want to breed for the mid points, as that is the happy medium. You can get too level just like you can get too steep. I hope that helps :)
