The red doe is more correct as far as her legs. She is also wider and longer bodied.

The paint doe has a better rump, more brisket, better blending into the girth and rear barrel. But she is more upstanding in statue, and longer bone pattern, more of a dairy build to me.

Overall, they both have weaknesses, and strong points.

If it was me I'd keep the red one & sell the paint. I like the longer body on the red, her chest looks better, and is just overall more appealing to the eye imo.

I'd also keep the red one over the paint. She has a bit more mass, bone, and look. Being young, they will fill out more as they mature, but lack the skeletal width to carry a big rack and wide top.

Depending on your goals, you might consider selling both and buying 1 with more mass, width, and bone. The 2 you have are functional and have some good things to offer, but just need more to them to do well in a show situation. I don't know what the market is like in your area, but around here they would be valued around $200 each.

I agree with the others. I would sell the paint. The red is nicer, overall. As far as pricing goes, what are the bloodlines?

Depending on that, if they are from good linage, $200-$350. If they aren't, $200 would be as much as they would bring.

I would keep the red doe as well. I wouldn't sell them for any less that what donna sells hers for. So that being said, try to get $450-$500 for her, bulk her up take pics, and put her up for sale.
Some of Donna' s show does, she sells for $650-$1000 but they have to be something special.

Personally I wouldn't own either, because I focus on excellent confirmation and traditional color. Their conformations are off on both, and they have too much color for me. For me, to own a colored animal, it's conformation must be outstanding. If you buy color for color, you're contributing to the problem of lesser quality animals being sold and bred. I won't even breed a goat on my farm if their confirmation isn't up to par. That's when we cull for meat. Not saying that these girls require culling, but I personally wouldn't own then. Not trying to be rude, just honest.
