This very correct doe just catches your eye as she moves around the barn yard.  She managed to get the best of both parents wrapped into one package.  She has the trademarks we came to expect in Flame kids and some great aspects of her dam's udder. Baby is a "dairy power" doe all the way.  She's deep, wide, and heavy while still being sharp and angular. 

Baby's first freshening udder is lovely despite some issues she had early on.  Her singleton buck kid was...HUGE...and injured her as he was delivered - requiring surgery to correct.  Thus, she lost quite a bit of production early on.  Still, her udder is much like her dam's with improved teat size and orifice size and improved texture (a Flame trademark). 

This doe's udder is WOW now that she is matured.  Socked on, wide, high, capacious and great lateral attachments.  She is very milkable and has a strong desire to produce, yet maintains her condition well throughout her lactation.  This is why I love these thick, powerful does...they really hold up better over the years and can do more without endangering themselves!

Baby's fourth freshening was marred by mastitis very early on.  She lost half her udder to it despite our best efforts.  Baby still managed to raise three of her four kids off one side.  One other kid was handed to another doe as a graft.  I have my doubts that the half she lost will come back next time but there's no real way to predict that!
