    A split utter is a lot like the split scrotum. It is not like a nice shape utter, it is like two totally different sides.

    I will have to look ans see if I can find the picture my daughter used for her Demo.

    If you breed to a buck with a split like the first picture that Keren used, you have a very good chance that the buck will pass that on to a doe. NOT a good thing. Now the second picture we still call lthat acceptable in the Cashmere world. Just getting close.

    I have a doe with a split udder, she had twin bucks and both of them had split scrotum. Funnily enough she also has a split teat (we call them fish teats)

    Wish I had taken a picture of her in milk, she's dry now since I weaned.

    I'm looking through and I can't seem to find it, I may have deleted it :( We used to have an alpine doe that we rescued who had a split udder, actually it was bottle teats. Sorry but it was one ugly udder. She did milk 10lbs though.

    Well anyhow, this isn't a split udder or a doe with bottle teats, but here is a doe with too much division in her udder, her medial is too short.

    :) ..so a split udder then looks kinda like they have two distinctive parts of the udder... that appear like being 2 coke bottles ...that are separated? .. :shocked: Is that a fair assumption? :scratch: :)

    yep, thats pretty accurate. They are very hard to milk too.

    I'll keep searching through my flash drive just in case I find it.......
