They are both very nice. Is it me or is the black headed buck a bit longer and more level on the back?
I like the paint, but I really like the black headed buck :)

I'd go with the black buck too. He's got a better topline, wider, thicker, and his legs are much better than the red buck. It's a really close call, though, they're both gorgeous.

They arnt pure bred, but the funny thing is the paint is 2yrs old, and the Black is 3, the paint is the same size as him and he ways more. But yes the Black is longer, Im keeeping his daughter to breed to the other buck, the paint might be a pure bred, but I dont know, the black is 75% unregistered

Are you keeping both bucks? Or just keeping the paint? I think you could really play around with breeding does to either one, I'm sure you'll have fun with the paint especially if he throws color.
I keep trying to get my husband into colored Boers and he's so stuck on traditional. I tell him he needs to think outside of the box LOL :)

Do you know how hard it is to get pics of bottle babies, i mean pictures taken of them standing so they look good, instead of them all up in the camera! They are such a pain

Yes! That's my excuse for why I need to get a fancy new DSLR camera. The faster shutter speed would obviously be good for business (never mind that I'm going to spend more on the camera than on the last 2 goats we bought combined)...
