    i got a picture of him!!! so nice looking! i can't wait to go up and play with him


    compared to the paint buck kids ( who are a week older) his growth rate is MUCH better ( he was a triplet too and the paints were twins) and i'm liking his body type much better than the paints who are chunkier and more BUCKY...


    i'm so excited! he's getting a nautical themed name.. but i want to actually see him before i start choosing

    oh.. here's pictures of the paint buck kids... very shortbodied compared to the other wethers


    stacey- he's going to be shown at my county fair.. but as he's my last wether ever.. if he doesn't win a champion i may just bring him home and keep him as a "token" of my fair days..

    the paint looks quite chunky to me :shrug:

    but I am sure you made a better choice then I could ever do.

    well the longer more feminie wethers tend to do better at our fair, the shorter chunkier ones don't do so well.. but i think she got people to buy them as bucks so she made out money too!

    i'm really excited though.. i get to see him this weekend or next week
