Mini Lamancha Senior does
Does 4 & under 5
Judge: Lavinia Allen
I placed this class of Senior Milking Does 4 to 5 years of age as:
Entry C receives Best Udder in this class due to her advantage of having a more capacious udder with a strong medial suspensory ligament and having equal udder halves.
Entry C over Entry A in General Appearance for being long in bone, level throughout her topline, having more angulation to the rear legs when viewed from the side and a fatter more refined shoulder blade. In the Mammary system she has the advantage for having equal halves of the udder, a more capacious udder showing equal thirds of the udder when viewed from the side.
Entry A over Entry B in the Mammary System again has a more capacious udder, with a strong medial suspensory ligament and a more ideal shape to the teats for milking.
Entry B although standing last in this class is to be commended for her width in the chest floor and in the Mammary System for good height to her rear udder attachment.
Judge: Lorelei Hallock
Placing: C (1st udder) A, B
Reasons: She is 1st place and 1st place udder for the advantage that she has today in the mammary system being fuller in that rear udder with more delineation in the medial suspensory ligament. She also has a defined advantage in general appearance for the length and levelness threw her back. She's much longer and more nearly level from hips to pins than A
A is placing over B for her advantage in the mammary system showing more balance and symmetry between the halves of the udder. She also has the advantage for general appearance in her feet and legs being stronger on her rear pasterns.
B Should be commended today for the width throughout and tremendous body capacity into the rear barrel.
