    I like the new style better- they look cleaner and more streamline- Most of the judges still like the old style better-Muscle,muscle,muscle

    I have to say they are both equally liked,in my book....they both carry unique ........... beautiful qualities and character..... 1st buck new .........looks really square .........like he is part box LOL

    yes, i like both, but not as much #1, like a hotdog vs. a box. there needs to be a happy - medium - style. #2 is great in my book,

    i like the old style even though I have a doe out of the new style...Her grandfather is TLB T333 Ripper. Ripper resides at Able Acres.

    I think that I prefer the old style, for practical reasons. The new style is pretty, but I think the old style would produce more meaty kids. Really both bucks pictured are very nice, and I suppose if I had both in front of me it would depend on what I needed to improve in the doe I was breeding to, so this is just an in general preference... Interesting topic, thanks for posting it. :)

    well i like the newer style a little better but the older does have advantages in meat, but

    i think it would be easier to compare the two types with goats that are roughly the same age

    What is the difference between old and new styles? If the old produce more meat, isn't that the point? What makes the new better?

    the new style is bred for show, but they can produce meat too.

    i dont like the new style bucks, execpt vindicator (and probably some others) the older style is great, looks majectic :wink:

    But I love the new style does because they look more feminine, but do they produce good fast growing kids?

    yeah, if they are bred more for showing, im sure they cull for meat or whatever . do you know how quickly they bulk up?
