    I managed to snag a Nigerian Dwarf buck, he's supposed to be registered, but I usually don't count on it until I see the papers. He has blue eyes, black and white fur. I am going to call him "Black Torque". Only paid $100 for him, he's 4 months old, and nearly ready to breed, but I wont let him, lol!!! Yet.

    Yeah, it's too late now, and he's full of energy that's why I am calling him Torque), I'll try to get some tomorrow, as it's supposed to be a really nice day.

    LOL! I thought about calling him Oreo, because he has this white patch on the side against black walls, but Torque fits his personality :p He's a HEAVY bugger too! I can't believe how bulky he is for his age.

    He has a very adorable face! I hate bucks with big, masculine and clunky heads. I have a doe who the owners called Oreo because her registered name is Dakota Oreo. I call her Dakota. Oreo seems to be more fitting for a very silly, child-like goat. I really like the name Torque. Belts are cool. I had a belted buck called Dante. Belts are dominant as far as I can tell from research and belted goats tend to pass it along quite a lot. Mine put a belt on every single kid he gave me (5 I think....I only used him one year.) If not a belt, they will put small spots on the mid-section of kids....like a fragment of the belt. I'm sure it's not 100%, but supposedly is very dominant, so he should give you lots of white markings.

    I want to get a patchy female to see what they would do. I seen a VERY nice ash grey with white patches, when I get money, Im'a be picky, I want a lot of whites, greys and blacks, I am a FANATIC for those colors.

    Oh yeah, that white tint he has is just the dust I put on him, his black fur is BLACK.
