    Hey guys!

    Let me know what you think about this little guy. He's 6 months old now and just hitting his first rut. We only plan on letting him breed with our girls if he's able and will see how his kids turn out, if hes successful that is.

    Pic of his father and his mother's udders also included. The rear shot is kind of from a distance, sorry for that I didn't want to disturb them... and he does not normally stand so wide in the rear, that's just a weird eating position I caught him in. 104364714_639334676651872_7418450973073977631_n.jpg 104374449_880257852466460_7457498393383318394_n.jpg PXL_20201018_164712667.jpg

    There are a lot of things to like about this boy. Good length, good brisket, nice length of neck, nice length of rump, nice size and stature, seems to have a level topline. I would like to see him and little wider in the front end, he looks pinched at the elbow in the photo and posty in the rear. Without having him set up - kind of hard to tell. Really the very most important thing in Nubians - is he G6S N/N? You can always improve on conformation, but not dna. Mine are 6 months as well, and getting it done - usually there aren't many problems. Good luck with your breedings - look forward to baby pics.

    I'm gojn
    I'm going to have him tested this year so hopefully N/N!

    He has a really awesome disposition also. Not a picky eater, easily takes the drencher for herbs , loves garlic . Very friendly ! His name is Robin :)
