I live in South CA & need to find an amazing ND buck for my doe.

Cinnamon toes out, has a steep rump, no brisket, and her dam needs bigger teats as well as better side & back attachments.

Want to help me out?
Here's some I've looked at:

Almond Roca:

-They wont charge a stud fee, but he's 2 hours away
-Dam has tiny teats

Piper:

-30 min away, but his stud fee is $200, and he comes from a long line of weak briskets and tiny teats
-brother to Encore

Encore:

30 min away, but just realized this farm doesn't offer outside breedings.........:wallbang: Also, he has no brisket

Shooter:

-last resort :/

Go ahead & vote! Or suggest a different buck :)

Just a warning.you will never produce a 'perfect' goat, especially if you are trying to breed up. Like it sounds like. It will take quite a few generations to produce a NEAR perfect goat. So, my advice to you is pick the BEST buck that you can find. Don't worry about correcting every fault in one breeding, because its not going to happen. So if you are more worried about milking, correct udder stuff for future generations, etc.

Yup, just trying to get the best I can ;)

I like Almond Roca too, especially if you can get him for free! The dam might have small teats but her udder is lovely otherwise, and will definitely improve attachments. I'm guessing that small teats generally go along with mini breeds and if you focus on improving those you're going to lose a lot of other qualities.

I would not pay $200 for a stud fee; you can buy a buck for that! Do they have udder pictures for the Craigslist goats?

Of the ones there, Almond Roca seems best. I would be grateful if I only had to drive two hours to find a nice stud service buck, for free, yet! (Four hour drive to meet the buck VENDOR half-way.) Tiny teats can be milked, and perhaps bred out in future. Make sure that whoever you choose is disease free. I don't like that Encore doesn't have a grown-up picture.
