    Alright, here's the girl that started the obsession. I do have a Pygmy and a young Nubian (who BTW is growing like a weed), but Alpines have stolen my heart. I at first thought I liked Nubians (I used to have a nubian wether) But I decided that I like Aplines best. Yes, they are a little bratty, but no worse than me! *giggles*

    Back ( I know you can't tell me much about her udders, since I didn't freshen her this year) But they seem to hang alright.

    And lazy bones when I made her get up. *laughs*

    Here is another back one, I could not get her to stand straight at all! She was too busy messing around.

    Oh, and yes by the way, the spots did it for me! I had to have her when I saw her spots. I got her in October of last year along with her nubian buddy. Buy one get one! LOL But I have never seen a spotted Alpine before.

    I know she is not real level. And I think her back end is a little small. I like them to look more proportionate. The one pic makes her udders look uneven, but I think that might just be the picture. She doesn't let me see her back end too much, she is usually wanting attention, so I was lucky to get side shots of her...


    Here is usually what I get...
