    Click Linear History on the left hand side of the page.

    Her LA score can be found on the Member's Only portion of the ADGA website:

    1-01 78 (+VAA)

    Sara,
    Explain to her the letters above the score and point her to the LA chart for Linear traits. We can't explain the scores in a post...you need to look at the pictures that go along with the #'s.

    I am such a guy. I must have had on my guy glasses when I read your post Sara. I did not even catch the members only part. Sigh. :rofl

    Thank you!

    Okay so she was pretty young which probably has something to do with the low score I assume.

    Good stuff to learn.

    Thanks!

    I just read the Appraisal guide and WOW. I had flipped through it before, but never read it all the way through. For anyone that has not taken the time to read the guide I would suggest you do so.

    Learn something new every day. :biggrin

    LOL....ok, so we've been saying that exact same thing for ummm...years now! One of the best ways to get over barn blindness and learn small things that will help you later down the road. Cheaper and more informative than shows anyday!

    Oh, thought I'd add that no doe/buck under 2 can score an EX overall. Reason yearling scores don't excite me-good or bad.

    Appraisal Guide...? Would that be Article X in the ADGA guidebook, or are you referring to something else?

    Something else. The ADGA linear apprasial handbook. Think it's $3. Best 3 bucks you ever spent. Used to be online but download took forever and 2 days.

    We tried to order one by snail mail and they told us you have to order it online and print it out, they no longer mail out the booklet. We have the printout at home.

    Anyway, that is what Troy said (this is Michelle responding).

    They are going to drag us all into the computer age. They are upping registration done by snail mail also, to force online registrations! Guess I will have to drag out that ole pin number :) Vicki

    Online registration is SOOO much easier and quicker, I have used it since it became available.

    And I believe the LA booklet is still downloadable, there is a link to it in the member's-only section. At least if what you are referring to is all the different diagrams and such...I just downloaded it.
