Doe IS out of milk, but isn't a show goat (too overdramatic and uncooperative), Doeling is hopefully going to be a show goat in one or two shows. This is a redo of my previous one, as I over placed my goats feet. Now they should look a little better.

Buckling, he was shaking his head over flies.

Doeling. She didn't really feel comfortable on the platform she was on.

Tell me how it is! Pros/Cons, Doeling will be only show goat, at least under me, mother won't.

Now you got it! :)
Much better sets!

Buckling
Cons:
Rump is steeper than I'd like
Could use more brisket, and better blending of the brisket to neck
Topline is a little weak
Minor rear leg toe out
And has a bit too much angle in the rear legs

Pros:
Good strong pasturns
Good front legs
Topline will most likely level out with age


Mother doe
Cons:
Steep rump
Tad weak in the chine
Little too much angle in the rear legs
Brisket could be better blended

Pros:
Strong pasturns
Good front legs
Fair depth
Strong shoulders



Doeling
Cons:
Hip is higher than withers
Brisket could be a bit more blended
Steep rump
Looks like a minor toe out in the rear legs (this is very common these days)
Could have a tad longer neck

Pros:
Level topline until the hip
Strong pasturns
Good bite
Once she kids her ribs should drop down giving her nice depth
Fair angle in the rear legs


Since the doe is young she might be in the middle of growth right now, causing her hips to be higher. It might level out when she's older.

Thanks a lot! Okay, well... this is a dumb question... where is the "brisket"? You said it in all three, lol, and I have no idea where/what it is. For Mama Doe, she is probably stronger cause she is also a cart animal, or at least training to be one! :cart:
