    Would love to see him

    Hmm that pic is really hard to tell by- from what I SEE in the pic

    But I would question his steep rump- and straight rear legs. His front pasterns also look weak.

    But- that could all be from just a bad picture and not a true representation of what he looks like

    How old is he?

    That's all exactly what I thought. I wasn't sure about his steep rump though, I was thinking if may be from all the fur?? Another thing I wasn't to excited about was his dam has a pocket in her fore udder, but has a really nice udder other than that. I have some does that I think could correct that, but I was hoping Don Juan's sire may have corrected that on him.

    Here is the pedigree on my doeling that I may trade...

    Sire: Brush Creek InSandrasHonor
    SS: CH Buttin' Heads Red Branch Legend
    SD: Brush Creek Beth

    Dam: Sugar Pine SI Sudden Delight
    DS: Flat Rocks MS Sudden Illusion
    DD: Mountain Quest ZA FrostyDelite

    Does he have any daughters that have freshened, so you can see what they turned out like?

    Edit- duh- I just found the link to his dams udder.....

    I think I would pass- hes got enough conformation stuff going on to make me pause-
    and his dams udder isnt fabulous- she doesnt have much of a rear udder, looks to be lacking in overall lateral attachments and if she's got a pocket too - she only got an A for udder in linear appraisal this year too. :shrug:

    BUT- Im really picky about bucks and their dam's udders so thats just my $.02 ....

    I'd hang onto your doeling :)

    I dont really care for him. He is steep in the rump, he toes out bother in front and back and he has weak pasturns. I cant for some reason bring up the pholia farm website, i bever can. So i cant see any of his relitives.

    Ok so i saw his father today.. he s GORGEOUS!!

    but i agree.. even though the pedigree is really nice to look at.. the fact the dam has a fore udder pocket, along with only a fair udder compared to the rest of Pholia farms stock.. it's not worth getting him, because he may give you the exact opposite that you want with his daughters

    i'd keep your baby

    See...this is why I love you guys so much...you give me honest opinions! :thankU: I have decided not to get him...based on everyone's opinions and input...I definately agree. I think i'll just hang onto my doeling and see if I sell her or end up working a trade. I posted a nubian doe that I might trade for... although I kind of rather sell at this point. We will see.
