4-5 month old bucks: FB Boer and a Togg...too fat?

Free fed alfalfa, free fed minerals, about 3lbs daily of Essential between them and sometimes some dry cob when I feel generous.

They look fine to me too. Looks like the Boer just has a wide belly either from hay, grazing or genetics. Our last buck was like that, and one of his daughters is wide in the belly.

Nope neither is near fat.
Squishy tail, fat pockets on elbows, jiggly brisket are signs of over conditioning.
