Thank you kaneel!!I can't see any major faults with her really. Good topline, brisket, depth, however I think she could benefit from stronger pasterns, more width, and maybe less posty legs. Overall though I think she could do well for you
Thank you so much for responding. It really helps. I'll have better pictures hopefully by tomorrowI can't see any major faults with her really. Good topline, brisket, depth, however I think she could benefit from stronger pasterns, more width, and maybe less posty legs. Overall though I think she could do well for you
I have never seen a goat dry/drying up with the udder coming back and being attached and still having great attachments? Do you by chance have a picture of one?She lacks in attachments, big time...Even dry, their udder like Dani said, should be held up to their body. Actually the weight of the milk will make her weak attachments look even weaker.
I understand where you're coming from not harsh at all.Well, she could have been shown if she wasn't dried up. They will not allow you to show a doe over 1 year of age that is dry, a senior doe HAS to be in milk to show.
But my quick 2 cents are,
When you set her up, you put the front legs too far forward, and the rear legs are a bit too far back
She does not have much brisket, and what she does have does not blend well into the neck
She could use a longer neck
She does have weak udder attachments, even for a 7 year old they should be much higher and tighter
Her legs are almost ideal
She has good pasturns
Fair depth, but would like to see more
And breed character head
Overall she's not too bad, her kids should be better if bred to a nice correct buck.
Hope I didn't seem to harsh, but when somebody wants a goat judged, I will, that is my expertise, I used to be a judge.
But I would score her an 88, but another judge might place her differently. Plus it isn't the same placing something through a picture as it would be hands on.
