-Mini Lamancha Milkers-
Does 5 years & older
Judge: Lavina Allen
I placed this beautiful class of Senior Milking Does as:
For the reasons below Entry B receives Best Udder in Class.
Entry C places over Entry B in General Appearance. Entry C is showing straighter fore legs with more forward pointing toes, stronger in rear pasterns, a more desirable slope to her rump and when viewed from the top a flatter smoother blending shoulder into the chest wall which makes a good dairy wedge in Dairy Character. In the Mammary System Entry C has a capacious udder with equal halves and shows clear thirds of the udder when viewed from the side.
Entry B over Entry A in the Mammary System as Entry A has a globular capacious udder that is well balanced in the halves, udder is high in a rounded escutcheon area, good capacity and extension to her fore udder, strong medial suspensory ligament and good teat diameter at the udder floor. In General Appearance she is longer n bone especially in the loin and has a longer leaner neck.
Entry A although standing last in this class is a very nice Senior doe in General Appearance she has straight fore legs with forward pointing close toes as well as showing good width between the hocks when viewed from the rear, when viewed from the top Entry A has a flat smooth blend of the shoulder into the chest wall and good width in the hip and pin bones. In the Mammary System she has a good medial suspensory ligament and good intermediate teat placement.

Entry B receives Best udder in class
The 1st place doe has the overall advantage in mammary system. You have to adore her beautiful rear udder arch and width of the mammary. She is more balanced when viewed from all angles.
The doe in 2nd has the advantage in her mammary system, having a much stronger well defined medial suspensory ligament. Her rear udder height brings more points as well. In her general appearance she blends more smoothly overall.
The doe in 3rd should be commended on her angularity and mammary capacity.
