    I love the "C" on his forehead :) I think his name should start with a C ;)

    He's a gorgeous boy! Are you keeping him?

    eh, it DID look like a Z..looks like lightning or a C now though

    he's only 94%, a lady might wants a commercial buck, but not sure if he'll stay a buck.

    I'm pretty sure it is 96.4% so a 94% (PB doe) produced a buck from a 100%, the buckling would be 94.6% considered purebred.

    He looks really nice I just love boer goat babies. I don't know why since they don't come in a crazy amount of colors like the rest but I sure do like the white bodies and colored heads.
