Hey everybody,
Recently i have been looking at buying a boer buck for this fall. It's been hard to find one that is close enough and not $1,000! I have been looking and looking for a buck with strength. I found these two: they are 2 hours away. I want to ask them for more pictures, but i wanted your guys' first thought. Thank you!!

Hey there. How old are these 2? Its hard to tell the width of the one looking away. And I cant really see the back end on either buck. Can you get more pictures? Are they registered? Are wanting show , wether producers,or just good healthy kids?

All's they said in the description was that they were born in the Spring. Yes, i will try to get more pictures! Not registered, which is good since i don't have registered!I just want good healthy and strong kids!

Here are the other ones that they are selling. But the two with blackheads just seemed to stick out more!

Defiantly more pictures but from what I can see they look healthy and fairly thick. I'm seeing a lot of cross in the one picture though of the does. Depending on exactly what your after that doesn't mean it's necessarily a bad thing.
What kind of crosses?

They look dairy to me too, I wouldn’t say they are full dairy but to be they look like they are Boer X Nubians. But again that doesn’t mean it’s bad, it all depends on what you are after to breed for. A lot of commercial outfits want some dairy to them so that they have more milk for kids, the idea is more milk from the dairy and fast sticky kids from the boer, and if that’s the case here then they pretty much nailed it.
But goat blessings might be right, maybe they see keeping dairy (I’m not sure what those two does are with the erect ears are) and boer apart when breeding, or maybe they are just smaller framed Boers. I defiantly agree ask to see dam and sire ;)
