    I have seen people asking for udder evaluations on here.

    I would like to know your honest opinion on one of my Nigerian doe's udders from last year.

    This is Nutmeg's first freshening udder- 3 weeks fresh/ 12 hours full.

    What do you think?

    Ok first I like her nice wide and high rear attachment

    teats point down which is good

    could use a more definitive MSL but other then that looks pretty good to me

    Wow...very high and wide! I agree with Stacey...would like to see a little more defined MSL, but that could change a bit with freshenings. Her teats could be centered a bit more, in my opinioin, but they point down nicely. For a first freshener...she has a very promising udder!

    I am kicking myself for not getting a side shot of her udder.

    I guess that gives me incentive to get more pictures this year!

    Looks great for a FF. Lots of width and very high. Should hold up for many many years.

    I think she is very nice and would love to see what she looks like next freshening. I love her lateral attachments. If she had more medial division it would bring the teats down to a bit more and they would be placed better. This could happen in future freshenings. ... but in other words :drool: :applaud:

    At her first show(this past summer) she was placed over some very nice does because of her attachment. She was at low production, but I wanted to see how she would do.

    I was winning!

    In fact at a county fair she almost went Best Doe in Show! The judge commented how close it was between her and a Togg.

    Nutmeg is my very first goat also. She elbows out some when she gets tired of being in the ring though.

    I feel like the rest of my show career will be a let down after winning right out of the gate??
