    So my friend got this buck for really cheap, and his old owner said he was one leg away from a PGCH.

    Can you tell me how good you think he is? He looks ok to me, but im still learning and me and my friend would love to hear what people think of him
    Thanks

    Need an udder pic of his mom, any daughters, sisters, etc.

    Just in looking at him briefly, he definitely needs more development, extension in the brisket. A little shorter-bodied than I'd like to see. He doesn't look extremely dairy but his bloodlines seem to be the older ones so that's probably the reason for that. . . He has kind of a "meaty" look to him.

    But if udders behind him are excellent then he would be good to breed to very dairy, long does w/ nice briskets. :)

    Permanant Grand Champion.

    So pretty much when a goat is shown alot, they get that title, something like that haha

    To be a PGCH a goat needs to be named grand champ I think three
    (or five) times.

    I've met and shown against this buck and his parent's before.. he's definetly more NDGA type than ADGA/AGS.. but.. isn't bad at all IMO

    Along with what's already been said, if you look at his front leg assembly, he's uneven... that was something that was big in the bucks at the linear appraisal I participated in.... Depending on his Dam's udder, may be worth it- may not...
