Ok, I have a 4 m old Nubian doe. She eats 3 cups (1 pound) of Noble goat a day, BOSS, grass hay, and some browse. She doesn't usually finish her feed. So is it normal for a dairy breed to be rather hippy? She just seems a little hollow in her hip area. As do all my dairy goats. she has been wormed.

Yes, dairy animals tend to look more hollow than meat breeds. It isn't always easy to keep weight on them, especially if they are milking. You might think about starting her on some alfalfa; it will help get her to a good weight before she gets bred ;)

She is really pretty too!
