The does have only had their "maternity haircuts" but I thought I'd snap some udder shots anyway. When the weather warms up I will be giving them full body trims and take more pictures, but I wanted to get some now when they are all about a month into this freshening. Well except for Roni who kidded less than 48 hrs ago, but I thought I would include her anyway.
Maple's udder 12 hours in milk and 30 days into her 2nd lacation. She is giving about 4# a day. She tends to squat on the milk stand so it is hard to get a good picture that really does her udder justice.
Mame's udder 12 hrs in milk and 28 days since freshening for the 5th time. She is giving about 4# a day right now.
Choc-o-latte's udder 12 hours in milk and 24 days into her first lactation. We are quite pleased with her capacity as she is milking a little over 4# a day right now. Her large orifices makes her so quick to milk, and the texture is so soft!
Roni's udder just under 48 hrs since kidding for the 3rd time. She only had a single doe kid, so there hasn't been much demand placed on it. She milked out the equivlent of just over 4# shortly after these pictures were taken.
