    Ok, so since there has been quite a few conformation posts lately. I was thinking we could post pics of one of our herd sires and say what you like best about him and why you are using him in your breeding program. But please....lets not point out faults or criticize other people's bucks, that's not what this post is for.

    Ohhh....i'm sorry sonrise. :tears: You should start a thread for the does! :D

    Oooookay, so, here's one of my bucks.... Deer Run Licorice Twist.

    I just love his conformation and his daughters are turning out great. I have three of his daughters, one of them freshened with a beautiful udder this year, the other two will have their first freshening in April. And I have heard his daughters that I don't own are turning out beautifully as well, so I am so excited to have him. And he's such a sweet and respectful guy. By the way...not a good pic, but the only one I could find at the moment.

    I love Rewind for his length of body, dairyness, AMAZING feet and legs, great depth of body, great neck and perfect front end assembly, his style and he has a really nice head too. His spring of rib is great and he is very sharp as well, and talk about upstanding!. I also love his MILK genetics and his pedigree is show, show, show. Every goat has their faults, I just can't find his :love:

    Oh and he is SOOO wide, and balanced, which is important to me :greengrin:

    I LOVE Rewind too!! He is so incredibly handsome and looks perfect to me! :D

    Well, we only have one buck so Roy-Roy is very special and looks awesome even in his hairy winter coat!! :) Reasons I like him:

    1. Awesome dairy character and general appearance
    2. Extremely sharp and tight in the withers and shoulders
    3. His kids are ALL so very correct, VERY consistent! It is difficult for me to find fault in them!
    4. His pedigree is awesome (to me anyways)
    5. His dam is simply gorgeous and is only a second-freshener, she looks SO MUCH better in person even though when I saw her she was "fluffy".

    While he's not totally perfect (would like a little more levelness in the rump) he is definitely nice!! :D And so incredibly sweet!!!!

    We kept one of his doe kids and her escutcheon is really wide and "bowling ball-ish" ;) Can't wait to see her freshen!! I plan on keeping a doe from Sassafras (bred to Royal) - she's due in November. . . . please give me some does!! :)

    Here's a couple of his doe kids.

    Here is my favorite buck - Joe Dirt (pronounced Dir-tay - :ROFL: :ROFL: )

    [​IMG]

    Now mind you - this is when he was penned with 3 girls about a month ago for the first time.

    I have not seen any of his pure bred daughters yet, but his lines have some great dairy quality. His breeder does not show as she is really really far from anything and she is petrified of disease - but I am hoping to see his first purebred daughters this spring.

    I need to get some nice pics of my Nubian buck - now he is to D-I-E for (in my opinion - but what the heck do I know!)

    I have three.

    Here is Mickey. For me he has BEAUTIFUL Cashmere and he throws it to his babies, and he is really long in the back, wide chest and really nice legs. He is 4 years old
    [​IMG]

    Here is the Cupid. He is just a year and a half.

    To be totally honest, I just LOVE his color. He only bred one doe last year (I took mine out to early, OOPS). He gave them two beautiful does. He is not quite as long backed as I like, but other then that he is really nice for me.
    [​IMG]

    And my youngest baby. Tucker Joe.

    Oh I just love everything about him. He is beautiful and his mom and dad are both Grand Champions ins several shows, for several years. I just hope he gets a longer back as he gets older.

    I have four bucks I'm using this year, and I used three outside bucks this year(they were Saanen bucks) I'll only post my bucks :) I try to look at the genetics of the buck as well as their offspring(if they have any) and relatives to see how nice of a buck they are. Conformation in bucks is not especially important to me, as some of the ugliest bucks in history have produced the most beautiful daughters.

    He is not being used heavily this year, only on a few does. I don't have much info on his background and I have a two daughters of his I am freshening this year before I use him heavily again. So far he seems to improve general appearance and rear leg sets but thats about it.

    Lots and lots of milk, show and high appraisals behind this guy, Elite animals behind him, lots of superior genetics designations behind him. His dam appraised 89VEEV as a first freshener. I'm hoping this guy will improve rear udder arches, milk production, teat placement and overall general appearance on his daughters. Click here to see his dam.

    Lots of show records behind this guy, he is a buck that improves length of body, escutcheon arches and feet. Here are two of his daughters:

    and a third daughter in my herd, who is linebred on Ecudo

    This guy is just a powerhouse, he is so well muscled, masculine and he has a ton of milk behind him. His dam is SGCH, LA'ed EX90, Top Ten and and Elite dam all in the same package. His sire LA'ed 88 as a yearling buck. I'm hoping this guy will improve milk, teat size and placement, as well as rear legs and feet.
