    Aww ty. Seriously you are going to make me blush lol. Heh I just like to keep my eyes open to flaws. Not because I am downgrading them, but because it helps me figure out exactly what I want to pair them with. This breeding to get him was planned out 2 years ago when I purchased his Sire. I most likely have too many bucks, but I have them each for different reasons. I have a 2yr old ( this boy's sire) , a yearling, this fellow and the boy who will soon be his "Bunkmate". I do not like to keep a goat solo so I try to pair them off. His original bunk mate passed so I purchased a new one for him after the previous one passed. I am planning to attempt to show him this fall as well as one or two others. My first attempt at it. His Bunkmate will be accompanying him.

    Well today I moved Spade into a smaller area that we generally use for weaning/kidding. I looked at him in there and determined he needs a much larger area. The current one is 4x16 . As I said I generally use it for weaning and kidding. Well, he is officially being pulled from his Mom today. He could care less. So here are a few pics. These are goat panels. Not a peep out of him. His Mom is another story. She did not make a peep when I removed her doe kid but moving this fellow upset her a lot. He is solo in his pen but has some bottle babies directly next door for company :). 20200524_190802.jpg 20200524_190647.jpg 20200524_190636.jpg 20200524_190402.jpg 20200524_190250.jpg 20200524_184804.jpg

    Yes hes starting to lengthen.get that rib cage spring. His baby face is changing. His jaw is growing, and the neckbase also. His leggy look will be less next month
    Looking good to me! Just be aware at weaning his sytem may need more food. Since moms no longer helping him.

    Thank you :) I wish I could have gotten a better pic but he moves his head sooo much lol. Plus he is super nosy. So it is really hard. He currently has alfalfa/orchard hay in his hay feeder as well as some pellets in the pan and minerals. My bigger worry is him gorging himself.

    Just for giggles I figured I would post a few pics of Spade's twin sister. He ended up with most of the dapples but she sure is a flashy girl hehe. She has a few dapples on her shoulders that have sprung up over the last month. Since we are keeping him we will be selling her. 20200527_163406~2.jpg 20200527_163349.jpg 20200527_163337.jpg 20200527_163334.jpg 20200527_163331.jpg 20200527_163328.jpg 20200527_163323.jpg 20200527_163321.jpg 20200527_163310.jpg

    LOl thanks. His Mom is one of the biggest does I have ever seen. It takes very little to keep her weight. I actually have to be careful she doesn't get too much. She is a bit of a booger at times with her skittishness but luckily Spade does not take after that part of her. I can legit move my bucks around easier than her. I did not expect her to be anywhere near as strong as she is

    Well looking at the Sire & Dam side by side, the dam looks small. Lol So the Sire must be very wide & long. Honestly..I dont think I would sell Spade. Have you thought about some shows close to you? Just so people could see him? He is classy and good bone, width, and big for his age. Just sayin....

    I have thought about it. There is supposed to be one in Perry GA around August. I have been trying to get additional info but they have not posted entry forms yet either. WIth the show supposed to be in August that has me worried.
