If I were to choose out of those 4, mocha would be my pick. Ember's bite looks off (could just be the pic), the black head and the other red one don't look as meaty as I like them to be.

They are all pretty girls though! I think they are all nice does.

If I kept Boer goats, I would be raising them for meat, so in my hypothetical Boer herd (and knowing nothing about them!) I would go with Mocha, as she is broad-chested, wide-bodied, and I would expect her to produce offspring with big frames on which to hold a lot of meat...I mean muscle. Sorry, I hope you're not vegetarian! I find that Star looks particularly narrow.

I don't think that sounds cheap but I am used to dairy breeds. I could get a Nubian milking a gallon for that amount of money.
