Caroline with her triplets (above) and her udder at the end of her lactation. I never got a good filled photo and this was after she was just nursing her one remaining doeling.

Gritty as Heck. Dingdong.
Caroline was a triplet and pulled to be a bottle baby. If Velvet is a genius, Caroline is the class dunce, bless her heart. But she is a good-natured goofball, even if she has the gross habit of trying to chew my hair while she has a mouthful of cud. She's just ridiculously likable.
Caroline is a full sister to Noel, and like her, she is gaining depth with age. I like her body length and rear width, especially.
Caroline freshened with triplets March 2022. She shelled these kids out quickly and has been a surprisingly attentive and patient dam. I'd like to see a better production so her kids were supplemented on the bottle but I believe that will come with additional freshenings. One of the best things about Caroline is her attitude towards adversity - she gets in there to eat no matter what and doesn't whine! It also makes her an absolute nut over feed. Like trample anything in her path, be it man or beast.
While she isn't the most loving ex-bottle baby, she is super-loyal, usually the first to come when called and the one right behind you on a walkabout.
Her udder is a pleasing shape, and her teats are more plumb than her dam's and a decent size. First-freshener attachments are decent, too. If she's like Noel, this will improve her next freshening. Already a lovely foreudder!
