Nichol's Acres Emaline Lucinda 4/27/14 - Gold Eyes - AGS ( ADGA pending) (Viking's NB Gilbert X La Z Oak Pleasures Frosty)
Height (2016) 18 5/8"
Emmalou, as we call her in the barn, is a 1st cousin to Maeyella. She has the most gorgeous sleek dark chocolate coat, frosted ears, and the friendliest personality- she is the first one to greet visitors and is a "leaner".
Her other strengths are, nice straight front legs with a prominent brisket, nice long body with a long slim neck. Good height in her rear udder- but I am hoping to Add more width in the escutcheon to her daughters.
Emma has an extra nice long neck! Though her shoulders are well blended at the top - she does have loose elbows.
But I have seen champions with that " fault " so I’m not too concerned about it:)

Her udder looks like it is attached pretty well in the front- but it's not at all widely attached in the rear but her escutcheon height is impressive this year! But with not enough side attachments- it is too pendulous to be perfect. I'm Hoping
that can be improved on her daughters! Her teats are very good size ( I think:) for a third freshener, and feel like they are "sturdy" and easy to hand milk. They also have very good size orifices, but they also are far
from being plumb teats- hopefully that can be corrected too. She milks down to nothing and has a nice deflatable udder for the lack of a better word! As a matter of fact - she would be pleasure to milk if she stood still!

Emma proved that she's not just a black goat - by kidding with a beautiful creamy gold girl!
