What do you think about our little billy? He's almost 4 months old now. We're hoping he is mature enough to breed by November. That's is his mom to thr right and a 2 week old doeling
to his left.

He has a very serious crooked front leg. His one back leg looks very crooked too. He really needs selenium and vitamin E. You may even want to read about rickets and see if he fits that.

I noticed that too & agree with Karen. It could be a nutritional or mineral deficiency. Hopefully not genetic.
He will certainly be old enough for service by Nov.

Thanks for the advice. I am hoping that this was just a bad angle for photos. I haven't noticed a crooked leg. I will go look again to be sure. He is very skittish so it is hard to get near him to see.

Yes, he should be able to breed this fall.
Maybe give Copper and Vit. A&D as well as Selenium.
