    Hey I was wondering what others thought about my buckling. He was born February 14 and was my first registered buck born on farm. He's 88%. Hes a little short for me but he currently weighs 75 pounds. Any input would be greatly appreciated, thanks. 20200605_135236.jpg 20200605_135249.jpg 20200605_135504.jpg 20200604_202313.jpg

    Here's his sire around the same age. 1591320039664blob.png 1591320019091blob.png 1591319855793blob.png

    He’s a nice buck! Weight is good. Only thing I’d change is more width throughout and more muscling on his rear. It’ll be fun to watch him grow! Nice job.

    Thanks so much, I think he could mature into a quality buck eventually.

    Very nice! I like him. Does he actually have dark coloration on one side of his mouth or is that just a shadow in the photos? Is he a true percentage mixed with something a few generations back or just has some commercial Boer back there?

    Yes he does have some dark color on the side of his face/mouth. It should be just commercial boer back there to my knowledge.

    I agree with the others.

    Bloodlines are good.

    Thanks, I tried to find the best genetics in my area and that's what I found.

    His dam has the nicest udder I've seen on a boer so I'm hoping he'll pass that along to his kids.

    Is the crease in the bottom of his testicles actually split?

    No it's not actually split, it's just like a fold of skin.

    A little update on my little boy, he's about 90 pounds now. Hes starting to put on a little more muscle, in my inexperienced eye lol. His back end is currently growing faster than his front, that's why his topline looks funny. 20200622_183645.jpg 20200622_183657.jpg 20200622_183729.jpg
