    Ok I know I really don't need them but i always want more goats. Its an illness my mother says but I was looking at these does and was thinking maybe they would be good to add to the herd. Not all of them but maybe a couple and they are priced really well I think. What do you all think I am kinda hoping you all say they are bad so I stop wanting to go buy them.

    Not a Boer person, but I don't think they look bad

    I don't really like the looks of any of them that well. They all (except for the first one) look like they need a little TLC too...just my opinion. I personally would pass. ;)

    they look nice to ok to me, it's breeding season and they're working now, of course they won't look their best
    I'd look in person and your gut will tell you what to do

    The buck is nice... not overly impressed with any of the does though. Maybe the first doe... but she doesn't have a Boer head at all?

    The 88% doe... stands out more than the others... she is the better choice IMO....
    that one I would get...

    #1 doe has weak pasturns and to big of tailhead drop.
    #2 doe hard to tell with the angle of the picture taken she is standing to close in front but it may be the picture.
    #3 doe 88% I like her top line (straight)...tailhead is is good not a big drop...pasturns I can't really judge because I can't see if her feet need trimmed they are hidden in grass.... she is long bodied... :thumb:
    #4 Buck...no length... but other than that not bad... according to the pic...
    Doe...picture angle it is hard to judge her overall..... she may be a ok doe.....

    a bit vague in my last post.

    I'd like to see that #2 wider in front
    the 3rd is one of the better ones. deep and thick. but your right cant her her feet. otherwise she's good for the price
    I'd pass on the buck
