    I'd love to hear any observations on these doelings. I've been taking pictures for MDGA's virtual show, and I'd love to hear what people think of them. I just love them all - they're SO sweet! Oh, and they are all MiniNubians. The first two were born the end of March and the last one was born the 10th of April.

    Thank you! I just love them and sometimes it's hard to tell if they really are nice or if I'm just biased. :) It's always good to get unbiased opinions.

    Thanks everybody. I have a hard time picking which one is my favorite, but I think I'd have to say Trillium. I have always wanted a buckskin MiniNubian doe - last year her dam gave me my first buckskin MN, but it was a BUCK. I was so excited when I got Trillium!!! I love her conformation, color and personality.

    Then Sapphire is from one of my favorite does, Molly. Molly milks about a gallon a day (she peaked at 10 lbs as a 2nd freshening 3 year old!!!). Sapphire looks a lot like her mom. She has a goofy personality and is very dainty. She's quite the character.

    Summer's was a later baby so by the time she was born I had so many kids on the ground she didn't get as much attention as the others. But she has a lot to grab my attention - I LOVE her ears!!! And I got my second buckskin doe! Although her color really didn't have much to do with why I kept her. :) Her dam is also super easy to milk and gives a lot.

    I like Trillium the best. She is absolutely gorgeous!! They are all pretty, though.

    Beauties for sure! Excellent choices in "keepers" and they are so true to the breed...I like seeing that...a breeder who truly cares what their girls produce, congrats on what you have done! :thumb:

    Thanks everyone. It is always nice to hear what other people think about my goats. I am pretty happy with the doelings I kept this year, I but I wanted to know if they were really as nice as I thought. I do have them entered in MDGA's virtual show, so it will be interesting to see how they do in that.
