    OK.... this is the buck that I'm thinking really hard about getting. He is WAY out of my price range.... but I like his lineage A LOT and his sire is literally one of my favorite myotonic bucks. I also really like his dams lines. He's 2 years old and has already produced 2 Grand Champions and a few Res. Champ doelings and bucklings. However, he's not polled and I REALLY need a polled buck as I only have room for 4-5 bucks here and I'm already maxed out. :sigh: What would YOU do???? :scratch:

    may be steep, look at the muscling in his rear end.
    if he will improve your does, go for it. trust your instinct

    I don't know anything about fainters but he is certainly a stocky fellow. I agree with the others he looks steep but maybe that's not a bad thing in fainters??? I say also, trust your instinct, be honest with yourself. I have failed to trust my instinct a couple times and it turned out badly. That is when I couldn't sleep at night because my gut was trying to tell me that something wasn' right. I think if it feels right and you have no reservations, then it is right. But life is all based on desicions that we make at that time. Right or wrong. Did that make since??

    I passed on him but am on the waiting list for first pick POLLED buckling out of his sire and my FAVORITE doe! Will be a pricey buy but his sire is now the first National Champion fainting goat buck.... I guess I must know how to pick 'em because I told his breeder when he was a baby... HE was her best buck and she needed to have him collected! LOL

    Thanks Liz.... I know it's funny... I really want a polled buck from that breeding so she will probably have all does or a polled doe and horned buck. LOL (that's usually the way it works right? :ROFL: ) :laugh: I'm still hopeful though.... she's due in November so I will let you all know if I get my boy or not. :pray:
