    As some of you might remember a while back - I was talking about wanting / needing a new buck. I had placed some pics of a buck that I was looking at on the site, named Old Castle Blue. Well this is one that I had shown my husband that I was interested in. But, most on here did not care for him.

    Well, hubby went and purchased this buck for me last month as an anniversary present for me and then told me about it. I hadn't said anything as like I said above, most of you did not care for him.

    Well, we went and picked him up today - and honestly, I am SOOOO glad that I got him. He is actually really nice looking. Those pictures did him NO justice what so ever. He is 18 3/4 tall at just shy of 2 years old. He is very dainty (which I really like). He seems pretty level when I was watching him without him "noticing" me. He is actually a very shy and timid goat. Not mean at all - just scared to death.

    He is going to make a wonderful addition here, and his daughter's are being bred now - so I should be able to see udders in a couple months!

    Anyway - I had to share my happiness!

    thats why I always say that we cant totaly judge by a pick --- especially when it is on uneven ground and he is all fuffy.


    Congrats!!! Seems hubby has got it right, he knows how to get to your heart :love:

    Blue - is doing wonderful. He is walking the fence seducing the girls and they :love: :love: him. But I want to get blood tests to see where we are with breedings, especially since some are FF.

    I will be able to take some pics on probobly Thursday, as right now when we leave and get home - it is dark out so they don't look very good. I am just worried that he is not eating much cause he is to excited about the girls on the otherside of the fence - LOL!

    Anyway - off to town!
