Just peeved about the mouth since she is reg'd and I'd hoped to produce reg'd kids and that mouth is actually a cull fault ...

I will breed her to a sound mouthed buck and be super critical on kids and hope that they turn out all right. Given that she has a fantastic udder and not a bad body.
Jane ... she is actually one of my uglier goats, with that mouth she is also very thin muzzled, and I hate the waddles (little dangly bits on her neck)
hills ... she's only pretty and white now because she's still in the quarrantine pen on straw bedding. wait till she is out in my black soil wont be so white then :lol2:
