    I will post the back story to this as soon as I get to work... just wanted to get these pics posted before I left home. These two boys are out of Lost Valley Serabi by Pegasus, but I am not 100% sure I can afford them, or make a decision with the limited amount of time I have... she only gave me 1 day to decide.

    If the pedigree is what I think it is - those are nice genetics and has a lot of ARMCH and MCH's. It is hard to tell since they are just babies - from what I see I like the gold one better as it shows a little bit nicer topline - BUT they are babies and the angles the pictures where taken on are not the same and they can change. The dam milks - that is always good. For the price I think you are going to be paying - will you be using him heavy in your herd? THe quality he could bring would pay off in the long run. A buck kid is a gamble though - may pay off big or not. If your goals for your herd is show quality and milking - I think he could bring that.

    the only thing i see negative right off is they both toe out - but this could be because of the milking stand they are being stacked on.

    Wow...impressive pedigree. If you can afford one then i'd definately go for it. I think the gold one would be my choice, but both look pretty nice. I agree with Stacey though looks like they may toe out a bit. I think that's something I could live with though looking at their pedigree and their overall conformation. Very nice boys.

    toeing out seems to be an issue in the lines I am seeing - I would need to see front shots to know for sure. But the udders and the body structure I like

    Both boys look nice -its hard to say which one will be the better looking buck and throw the nicer kids
