We did a critique of this little guy a few months ago and as promised, I am bringing him back to see how he has grown. Could you critique him again for me? I am looking for a weather sire but he is reg. 100%. As always, be heartless, I won't be offended as the point of this is to learn. Thanks! He is six months old and on pasture only. Very little grain.

Another stout looking little guy.

Pros
Good bone structure
topline is level
hornset is wide
I really like his width through his chest
nice capacity
Fairly strong on his pasterns

Cons:
Neck is a little too short for my taste
short bodied
rump is steep

I agree with Sydney. I like his top and his front. His hip could be leveler. His pasterns looks pretty good and he doesn't toe out as bad as your doe I don't think. I'd like to see more of a butt/twist to him, and he could use some length. I would like to see more base width altogether, but he's not bad! :)

Good- Bone, thick over all, he has a good width and wedge shape and his chest pretty neat and up tight. His hip could be longer and leveler as well as just being longer over all. A little more style and more balance would help him as well. Biggest thing I see is he is pretty short bodied. With wether bucks you want alot of length

Yeah, sadly that is confirmation of what I didn't want to admit. I really like this guy's personality and I really liked him when he was a wether. But, he is not what I need to move my herd in the direction I want to go. I guess this little guy will be for sale.:( on a lighter note.....I will have a new batch of babies to console me soon!:D
