    I have been looking at bucks not really wanting to buy one but thinking about it. I have been trying to decide if I want to buy a buck or just try to find one to breed my does with. I will breed 2 does in August and 2 in October. I was thinking if I get a january buck he will be old enough to breed by August and I will be able to keep him for some years to come hopefully. Now the problem has been where to keep him. I think since he is young and I need to start feeding my does and wethers differently since the wethers are huge I could seperate the wethers and keep the buck with them and keep the does in a different pen. Plus they are only asking $150 which for my little operation is right in my price range. Now that you have read threw my ramblings here is the buck I found he is not registered and was born 1-07-10

    I like this one for his length and width in his front shoulders which is something my does don't have. In the second picture you can see the muscleing in his front legs which looks great. The other one I was thinking about is this one

    He is good but I like the other buck just a little bit better the one thing this buck has that the other doesn't is he has a super large frame. I just really like the power in the first ones front end. What does everyone else think?

    the second buck has better breed character, and is more masculine in overall build and body.. I dont paticularly care for the first buck, he seems more rangey and feminine

    Why is the second one more masculine?
    I thought the first one was...of course I have no knowledge of this at all! LOL But the chest sticking out kind of made me think "masculine"
