LOL...what an understatement, Fritzie..... Fritzie's Alpines are h-u-g-e and still so very correct. I would love to reproduce those proportions but in miniature with my ND herd.
Chelsey- there's no reason you have to find only one body style and settle for that. You can have an all inclusive kinda herd! We'll all be saying "well that goat has a little bit of everything. HAS to be a Muddy Creek nigie." :thumb:
Boy I really do feel your pain. I work with them and walk them for a while to try to set-up again and some just fall to the ground and cut flips. They'd rather gag themselves than stand. I normally don't keep them if they show out that bad. I have one right now who's just like that. She's new and I'm really hoping we can break her of it. Number one thing she needs is to be removed from her dam. It makes me think of a child in a store with their mother and they get away with murder and show out like a real brat, and their mom lets them. Literally they walk all over their mother. So I'm taking her from her dam today. She's 6+ months old so its not like she "needs" to be with her either. Wish me luck, I'm going to need it.
I like Faith better, she has better general appearance, she is longer in body, more level over the topline and she has a nice rump angle(her fore udder appears quite smooth also, but she is milked out of course) She is not as refined as Ginger is.
Ginger is also very nice, very dairy, more uphill angulation than Faith, her withers don't blend as smoothly with her neck though, although they are still nice.
