    Daisy is wider and deeper than she was in the picture I showed you all . . .She is very pudgy, and I sincerely hope she is bred. :pray: She definitely needs a longer, slimmer neck! Her body is fairly long, but could be longer. . .also I would like to see tighter toes and shoulders. . .also sharper withers. Her smooth blending takes my breath away! She is a sweet tempered doe . . .

    Sacajawea is not half as bad looking as in the picture. Under her winter coat she has a long, slim neck, also a fairly long body and nice sharp withers. Her rump is not as steep as I thought it was---now that she is relaxing and becoming more at home, her rump is not so tucked under and tense; and so it's not as steep as it looked. She could benefit straighter legs (her's are not bad) and I would like to see a smoother topline. Her long teats take my breath away! She is due in three months! I have just discovered her half sister, who is a very pretty chocolate colored doe simular in conformation.

    Anyway, I didn't get to take pictures todya because it was pouring cats and dogs and also it was really misty . ..I am praying for a clearer day tomorrow however.

    Hope you had a nice weekend!

    They're very pretty girls...no goat is perfect so it's always nice to be able to identify their weak areas so you can breed with a buck that will compliment them and improve those weak areas in the does kids. You have a good eye--I think you're going to build a very beautiful herd.
