    Oh my ! Apex sure is handsome ! He reminds me a lot of my boy :+) And Chrome - holy cow she looks good for an older gal - is she really that up hill ? What kind of milk amounts do you get from her ?

    And i'm TOTALLY in love with JuJu !!!

    Thank you so much for sharing !!! I can't wait to get my pics :+) speaking of my pics - is it reccomended to kinda pinch them in the loin area to get a better set up for a pic - if so, how/where do you do it ? Any other tips - or tips on getting them ( my herd is 90% kids ! ) trained to stand/pose for pics ? Thanks !

    They are all so pretty (exceptfor Apex, of course; he's handsome :wink: ) Trill looks like Melino, except for the udder... I can tell your goats are healthy and happy!

    thanks guys! i love the way they look when they are cloipped. Yes chrome is that uphill, she is a really nice doe except she is a little steep in the rump and she toes in a bit. but other then that she looks great at seven years young. im getting about 16 lbs a day from chrome.
    Im really pleased with how Juju is turning out. I got all the kids clipped today, you should see jujus kid she is beautiful. im definalty repeating the breeding with her and apex.

    Oh my gosh!!! Your alpines are GORGEOUS!!! Awesome pictures and beautiful animals!! Alpines are my favorite large dairy breed, they are so elegant and majestic. That sounded cheesy but I think it's true! :)

    I cant believe how level Trill is! All are beautiful but I like her topline a lot.

    are you still trying to sell them?
