What a handsome boy! It's a little hard to critique goats that are not shaved or set up, but I'll give a try!

Pros:
  • Good blending through neck and withers
  • I really like his head shape/size, and neck (length)
  • Front legs are well placed under shoulders (could be a touch farther back though)
  • Nice brisket extension
  • Flat, level brisket (it's not slanted up)
  • Great body depth
  • Good rear leg angulation
  • Level topline (strong chine and loin)

Cons:
  • Short, steep rump
  • Lack of body length

What I can't judge from these pictures:
  • Pasterns
  • Width

Hope this helps!

I agree 鈽 Pictures straight on from the front and back would give good ideas on chest and rump width. Pictures on a hard surface or in short grass for pasterns. Overall a nice buck!

Nice topline, nice uphill stance and he looks to have nice depth. What is his dam like? Her mammary?

I didnt get to see her in milk but i do have pictures of his dam let me see if i can upload what i have. He does *B on his sires side in his lines.
I can only find this one pic of his Dam. And heres a pic of his papers
I'm not familiar with the herd names except for Dill's. Really can't see her well enough to assess her conformation. Steep rump. Good luck with your buck, he's cute.

Great job! Just keep on practicing!

I really like how he's maturing!! I think he looks longer now. I can see his pasterns better in these pictures and I think they look great. I like his chest width and his feet don't toe-out. His rear legs do look postier (not sure if that's a word lol) now though. Overall, I think his conformation is NICE and I can't wait to see what he looks like once he's mature! 馃榾
