    I got updated photos of a few of the girls (the ones that have freshened anyway.....). The girls were straight out of the pasture (not brushed etc.) about a week after attending a show:

    SG Saada Gilasin Babbett 6*M ("Babs"):

    UnRuli P. Shame on the Moon ("Shame"):

    Lonesome-Doe BA Galeana ("Gally"):

    and unclipped photos of Shame's two doelings (photographed from the opposite sides because I can't tell them apart):

    I'll get photos of the other girls as they freshen.

    Babbett didn't do real well......her raised dorsal process hurts her placings a LOT(sometimes the dorsal process doesn't go down after kidding). Shame and Gally however did pretty good. Shame is normally outshined by her littermate sister "Pink" but Pink had to have surgery on an injured leg so now Shame is having her time in the spotlight. She was placed 2nd out of 11 on the first day but was moved down to 4th place due to not enough milk but it was noted that she had the smoothest fore udder and was the most structurally correct doe in the ring. Gally was two places behind (she needs more body capacity at this point). The second day Shame was 2nd and Gally was 3rd. Both days there was some pretty heavy competition with some purchased animals from some VERY well known herds. Shame's kids didn't go as I won't take kids to shows until LATE in the season.


    Yep, Feet and legs are pretty good around here tho' the girls in the photo ARE due for a foot trim (they're a little long in the toe.....it had been 3 weeks since the last trim). I'm looking forward to our appraisal at the end of August!!

    About 10-13 lbs tho' that's with hand milking. I'm not using my milking machine yet, but it looks like she milks out better with one so maybe it's actually more.
