    I finally got my buck! I love him! (even though he cries whenever he sees someone) I think he looks pretty darn good myself! At least for my first buck (other than Orion). :wink: Please tell me honestly what you think of him.

    Should I enter him in the online goat show?

    Thanks! I'm pretty impressed with him. He's much noisier than my girls though. :roll: Poor little guy is so confused. I'm hoping he'll throw a black doe eventually for me. :greengrin: I'll enter him in the Online goat show. :)

    Like Sarah, I think you should enter him.

    Can we see pics of his sire and dam?

    He is an okay buck. There are a lot of things I'd like to see improved on him. I'd like to see him more upstanding in the front end, smoother in the shoulders, longer in the body, more level across the rump, and longer in the cannon bones. JMHO

    Crissa, he is a handsome boy!! You definately should enter him , at least to get an idea of who can add strength to any weakness' he has.

    I agree with dover farms, though if you're just using him to freshen your does then he will do. as long as he is clean. and froma clean herd. I would like to see less control over his ears a more roman nose smoother shoulders. More length and depth of body a wider deeper brisket and straighter front legs. He has an alrigh topline and is wdge shaped. he has nice width between the hocks and is cut nicely into the excutchen, but he is a bit steep rumped and posty. Of course he is yung and things will cchange as he matures.

    http://goatshows.freeforums.org is the website, you take pics of your goats, side, back and front, then we have a panel of judges that will judge your goats against the other goats in that class. Like a real show, only virtual :)
