    Just looking for opinions on this Nigerian dwarf doeling. She's 13 weeks old. (Ignore the fact that she's not set up very well. Spent who knows how long just to get her to hold still:haha:) 20200724_173423.jpg

    Definitely not an expert but i've been trying to learn so i'll give it a go.

    Pros,

    Good length and depth
    nice front end assemblies
    Great rear leg angulation
    pasterns look good
    has a decent, uphill stance from what I can see.

    cons,

    She has a short, steep rump and her topline could be a little stronger, definitely not the worse topline i've seen though!
    But otherwise I think you have a very lovely doe there! :inlove:

    She's a pretty little thing! Nice and dairy, but she could be more smoothly blended in her front end assembly, especially from the neck into the withers and she could use more stature. She has excellent angulation though and it looks like she has a nice brisket. Her biggest faults are a weak chine and short steep rump.
