    All three are a little week in the chine but I do remember you saying that goats arent as developed in your area as they are here in the US

    Her udder appears lopsided....I would guess thats because of the single buckling? They all look very nice, and as was mentioned the weak chine could be improved on. Her udder looks capacious and has a really good for, I don't see a pocket, the rear looks to benefit from a higher attachment...medial can't be seen but going by the front pic, looks to have nice separation.

    I think they are all very well taken care of , very pretty!

    I think she has a really nice udder. It is very snug, no pocket that I could tell and nice teat size. I would like to see a more level rump, though. Is she related to the buck you might be getting?

    I like this doe a lot Keren! her udder is nicely attached. her son is nice too.
    The only thing i would change is the rump level and the chine. But those can come later down the line. If she and he is available i would get both.

    lol both the young and older buck are for sale, but the doe isnt :sigh:

    I just saw the ad and thought, that is one of the better british alpines I have seen, and wondered what you all thought. I think she's got a great udder and produced a nice kid for her first time round.

    Not at all related to the buck I am getting

    In comparison to some of the other goats you showed us in Australia, this doe looks awesome!! Her son looks great too! Same thoughts as everyone else. . . that he could use more strength in the chine and levelness in the rump - all in all, quite nice! :)

    yeah I think the son is really nice, if you could get him that would be cool. I think he looks a lot better than the buck in the other thread.

    It's the area right after the withers and before the loin. You see right after the ribs it kind of looks "hollow"? That part of the back is the loin and right before that is the chine. Make sense? Here's a pic: http://goatsetc.org/Images/Goat%20anatomy.jpg Hope that helps. :)

    Thanks Jacque for posting that. I had it saved on my computer at one point but couldnt find it. I have it printed out to reference when people speak fo different parts of the goat so I can view it quickly
