In the middle pair, B shows more balance throughout and has much more depth and openness of rib than C. From the side, B has a more youthful and appealing udder shape by being more level across the udder floor. I also prefer the smaller teat size of B over C. I grant that C stands more squarely on her rear legs and has more stretch to her frame than B.
Finally, C places over A in a logical bottom pair. The rear udder of C has more height and width along with a more defined cleft than A. C is more refined in her bone, particularly in the hock, and leaner through the neck. Finally, C has more spring to her pasterns and stands more squarely on her hind legs. I do give A an advantage over C in being deeper in her rib and having more power through the front end.
