His front end is very nice as well. Charlie's dam has a large udder with tons of capacity (see her on the Reference Does page). He has lots of milk on his sire's side also. His paternal granddam was only 21.5" and gave 6#'s per day! Charlie's kids are beautiful! He really improved the ears and noses and gave them beautiful conformation with straight legs.
