Now what you have all been waiting for......other than reicheru's babies. I finally got some pictures.
The lady i got them from has more Togg does in the top stock for dairy character than any breeder nationally. She also has a elite buck.Great looking gals Tog....sharp...Topside
Oh My....Sure does have a tough life...too cute!!!!! Love the goat pics. They are so pretty. I wish mine had multi colored coats.They look very happy and healthy! I am so used to looking at mine with their winter coats on now...it's nice to see your looking so un-shaggy! Are they friendly with you? I see you have an Aussie too
Here is mine in all their shaggy glory
They are even more shaggy now
Here is my Aussie
he has a rough life
I have Toggs, hunters, and possibly similar weather here in central MN.Nehi I was thinking the same thing. If I was to get one how would I stop a trigger happy deer hunter from mistaking them for a young deer? Can you get a little layer of fat on a goat for winter protection? I'm wondering if they would freeze to death up here in the winter?
They are both a little narrow for me. The little one you cannot see well is the best of the 3 IMO. I'll see if I can get a better pic of her and see what you think.... I enjoy the eye of experience herdspeople.Now that the pix have finally downloaded on my 12k dialup...
Nice doelings with a lot of dairy character. Look at the long lean necks on these young does, and their sharp withers. I like that lighter colored doeling with the black collar. she is a little high in the rear and could maybe be more level in the rump, but neither are extreme enough to be an issue.
the darker doe with the chain collar looks like she might be narrow in the chest. She is standing with her front feet out, almost a sawhorse stance, which I see in my base narrow does. A narrow chested doe doesn't have the heart, lung or rib capacity for maximum milk production. They can make a lot of milk, but not as much as a similarly bred & fed wide strong doe.
They look like an excellent foundation to your Togg breeding!
