    If DH had his way we would never sell any babies. :lol: We might keep both does from Almond. DH loves the doe with ears and I love the other doe. We decided to name them Abba & Zaba. Dams name is Almond Joy, we wanted a candy bar theme names.

    Last night was the first night I separated babies from dam. I did not milk them out to see what they're producing, just wanted to see udders full. They're not the best pictures.
    First marshmallow. SF All udders are with 11 hour fill.

    I wish Marshmallow had better attachment. Afraid of how low her udder will be after her next kidding. She is easy to milk.

    Any thoughts on them?

    Looks like Marshmallow has a very nice fore udder! Sometimes those can pull the udder forward.
    Almonds fore udder is short but her rear looks nice
    Tiana and Lotte look very nice

    I think all those are very nice workable udders. :)
