    This is just a curiosity question:

    I've got a lady interested in buying my 3 yr. old Nubian wether but she said she has a really big wether and wants to make sure they are compatible size wise... her boy is 170 lbs.

    I had no idea what my guy weighs but he seems big to me. So, I went on-line to find out how to weigh him, went out and measured him.... he's about 230 lbs! Is that normal, is he big for a Nubian guy? He's not fat at all, he's about 33 inches tall at the shoulders.

    Here he is... sorry about the shadows... you can kinda get a feel for his size by comparing him to the round pen panels directly next to him.

    Excuse the bindertwine collar... it was used to move him.

    That's normal...I have an Alpine wether that is almost the same size as him. Oh, and he doesn't look fat at all in the pic...he's just a big guy. :)

    I think he looks great! He is just good and healthy, and I DON'T think he is too fat at all. Very handsome fella you got there :thumb:

    My Nubian boys run around 250lbs which my vet says is fine.

    Your boy doesn't look fat. He looks very nice.
