    Ok, Mods, I wasnt sure if this should go in the photogenic section or here, so your welcome to move it if need be.

    So Myrtle is a first freshening 2 year old and I'm really curious to see how her udder fills in and how her kids turn out. She's kinda one of those old style stocky and deep nubians so its really hard for me to decide on how many she has. I'm thinking twins, but it could easily be a large single. We shall see.

    She's out of a really nice herd, but her mom was probably the eye sore of them comformationally, so I bought Myrtle extremely discounted thinking that if her udder doesnt cut it for us in the show ring, I'll still be happy to have her as a family milker. I hope her dad throws her udder though, he has made so amazing improvements for thier herd in just one or two generations. So there may be some hope for show quality yet.

    Baby bump, for a second here I could clearly make out a little hoof in her side!

    Stacey, I thought it was really cool too. I've always heard nubians can breed year round like the minis, but I've never actually seen it before. Usually we are breeding in September not kidding!

    Thanks! I'm uber excited to share. I promise you'll get tired of me by the time kids though ;) LOL

    Very pretty mama to be!

    Her bitty udder is showing promise! Those long and plumb teats look great AND I do see a very nice medial in her future!

    hee hee, I hope your right Liz!! Wouldn't it just be great if she freshened with a phenomonal udder?? I can just see the look on her breeders face now as we're handed our first place ribbon.... :slapfloor:
