Hi. I just joined 4H this year and decided to show two nubian wethers at fair. Our county fair is at the end of August. please look at the pictures. the black wether is willy and the gray one is nelson. Im not sure if the two have bloat or not. Their left side look slightly bigger but not anything too noticeable. Also im not quite sure what a goat in good condition looks like so please critique them honestly. If you have any recommendations on how i can get them looking better by fair please share. Thanks for your time, God bless.

They definitely do not have bloat. You should see our pet Nubian wether after he eats a lot of hay, words cannot describe how huge he looks. Everyone always ask when she is due, then I get to tell them she is a he. :) Just a healthy rumen doing its job, perfectly normal.

As far as condition, are they going to be market wethers? If so, pure Nubians aren't going to gain like a Boer. They aren't really thin, but they definitely could use more weight.
