No his dad was a pretty caramel pygmy buck that I just had to have. He was so sweet and friendly when I got him until I got him home and put him in the buck pen. He tore it down to get out. So We put big 6x6 post concreted with a steel door. And doubled the fencing with wood and metal panels. After about 20 mins he had knocked the concreted posts loose ,broke the hinges off the door and bent the panels and broke his horn. So he ran loose for a few days until I was able to sell him.
