Zoe-goat with her first place ribbon

Eddie Holland, judge, said that he like Zoe because, despite her size, she was "a little box." She stood square on all for corners, had excellent shape, and looked like she would keep that good form as she grew. He liked her fleece for both its style (curl) and character (individual lock structure). Even at the base of her curls, it looks like she is not widening very quickly (so she will keep tight, fine hair for longer) and she doesn't show much skin (which implies a lot of hair density).

As a "pretty point" the judge said he wished Zoe had higher, cleaner-curving horns. He also said that it didn't make a difference to either him or the goat, so don't worry about it unless it breeds trouble. Since her mother is hornless, I'll take what I got.

Here's a photo of her for reference.
