    This little buck is almost 6 mo and just wanted opinions on how he looks. He is blue eyed and polled and I plan to use him on a few does soon.

    I like his sharp withers and he looks to be a good width..I know how the boys are this time of year and having his tail up high and the ridge of hair standing on his back is decieving, but he looks to be level and even rumped...handsome color too! I'd use him!

    Kind of an odd angel to judge from but he doesn't look bad. Would be nice to see his shoulders, and neck better. His topline is too misgiving since his dorsel is up from a dominance stance or stressed a little.

    How is his width up front, chest depth and rear angulation? Tight or weak shoulders?
    Also, a lot can be told from the bloodline. How are the udders on both sides? You can have the prettiest boy in the world, but if he can't put on udders, he's not doing his job.

    Wow, he is nice! And at only 6 months he's looking really good. Blue eyes and polled...I've always wanted one! Very nice! :drool:
