I like my bucks thick and muscly but with a splash of dairy character, hes beautiful in the august pic, love his confirmation. I especially love his length. Hopefully in a year or 2 he will gain more mass and he will easilly be a buck that anyone should be honored to have in their herd. Lovely boy!
Gee-thanks everybody! Yeah, he needs more body capacity, but if I look at his daughters from this year, they are both showing more capacity then him: *last photo property of Purple Lady Bug Farm* The first one I retained, the last I sold to Purple Lady Bug Farm. Both are looking very nice!!!!
Here's a pic of his dam-two, really-one when she's full and one when she's milked out *Both photos property of Hull's Alpines*

I'd most definitely like to see more body capacity, depth into the rear barrel, and brisket. He is very nice other than those points. But as a yearling, his growth is more into hight and length right now, don't worry, his depth will come.
If he gets enough capacity going, I wouldn't hesitate to use him in my herd, he is a nice buck. But looking at the udders, I think he would downsize my does, unless his dam doesn't have a fleshy udder.... hmm...
Do you know what his dam produces?
