    I'm thinking about this doe who for sale. This a top-show quality Nubian doe, I know her udder is fabulous, I'm just trying to learn the udder "parts". :greengrin: Please tell me what you think! She has GREAT lines too. :)

    Re: What do you think of this?

    Ummm, can you get a picture from the side, and then one from a little farther back from the rear, so we can see the distance from her vulva to her udder? Also is this doe a FF, 2nd freshener, etc?
    That will help those of us that are learning too!

    Have you milked her? She looks like she would milk down to nothing (really deflate), I like that in a milker.

    Thank you, Katrina! :hug: That was VERY helpful!!!


    I requested the side pic and a further back pic too. :greengrin: I haven't milked her yet,as I haven't seen her yet in person. I think she is a second freshener...I'll ask :)

    From what you can see in the picture, what do you think?

    From what I can tell, nice plumb teats, large too. Nice medial and a wide attachment.....her capacity could get better with each freshening.

    If she would improve your herd and she is a goat that you would enjoy milking, then I would go for her.

    A picture from the side that shows he whole body too would be good. I have seen does with good udders but poor bodies. Remember the mammery is only thirty five points.

    Re: What do you think of this?

    here is my 'evaluation' (warning, dont know too much about dairy)

    good rear leg angulation, good straight legs, level and very feminine, sharp withers, great head and ears, and is showing like she'll get that beautiful wedge shape with age and future freshenings.

    Re: What do you think of this?

    Well I'm still not the best at judging, but I am getting better. :wink:

    Stong points:
    Good breed character, nice long neck, level back, strong feet and legs, and good teat size and shape.

    Weak points:
    She could use a more level, longer rump, she could be a bit longer bodied overall, better set to the rear legs, and I would like to see more width to that rear udder(I can't see the height) and more correct placement of the teats.

    I would deffinitely want to see a side profile of her milking...and a foreudder pic.

    Re: What do you think of this?

    I think she is very dairy and has good general appearance, strong feet, nice legs, very strong topline and nice shoulders, I think she has nice angulation overall, and she is very feminine with good breed character. For her udder, I think it is wide(can't say high without a farther rear pic) with good teat size although the placement is wide, and she has a nice MSL. :)

    She a very dairy looking doe, I think her ears are awesome, her feet are very strong too...no fallen pasterns there!
    She could benefit from a longer level rump, but she is not too bad at all. :thumbup:
