    Well, I have four buck now because I just fell in love with one of the boys we had this year. We went to band him and my daughter and I just could not do it. So I got it out word of mouth that I was selling Cupid. Well beings he won Best buck in show at the Estes Park Wool Market, two years in a row, plus won best fiber in show at Estes, I had several people jump on it. So I was able to sell him for $650.00. He bred a lot of my does this year and we had 12 babies from him, and only two were boys, (one we kept).
    Well he just got out the other day and bred one of my does that I did not want bred but we decided we will leave her as he will only be breeding her from our farm. So I sold him and I have my first doe bred for a very early Jan kidding. :clap: :leap:

    Its a bittersweet moment. I know you have had great luck with cupid, now he can spread is good looks to other herds, and you still have a son to carry on his genetics. They are both great looking animals.

    Congrats on the sale! It is always sad when you sell a nice one but nice when they get to be used in other herds and spread their genetics. He is a impressive buck. You got a nice replacement in his son!

    Thanks all.

    I will miss Cupid because I just love his markings and he is so beautiful, but he is not a lover like my other boys. I like to be able to go spoil them and things and Cupid would rather not be touched. I will miss his beautiful head. But hey money talks also.
