    Not mine, only in my dreams :greengrin:

    This is Big Bucks Stone Cold, owned by Mugambi Boer Goats. They are the number 1 stud in Australia. Apart from winning all the shows they produce some very functional animals that perform in the paddock.

    Stone Cold passed away a few months ago due to urinary calculi; he had struggled with UC some years ago and pulled through with several operations, when they didnt think he would. He was an amazing buck and has left his mark on many Australian goats.

    He was National Champion in 2006, I believe this photo was taken at 4 yrs old.

    SDK, yes he is FB South African, I am not 100% but I think either his parents or his grandparents were imported embryos. I would have to look up his pedigree to be sure.

    Yes I'm pretty sure they do. I'd love to AI to him but something tells me those straws are gonna be held pretty tightly now ...

    Actually the newest buck at work carries a lot of stone cold, his paternal grandfather is stone cold and I believe he has quite a bit of stone cold on the bottom side too. We bought him a few months before the big guy died along with 5 does most of which were heavily stone cold ... not sure whether we would have got them had we been a few months later.

    SDK, probably 99.9% of goats that make it into the showring here are fullbloods.

    There is just not that many purebreds around, and those that are, arent generally shown. I think technically purebreds are allowed to show with fullbloods, but the classes are actually worded Fullblood buck kid, 6 - 12 mths etc. So now I'm not sure ... :scratch: :? Will have to look into that!

    toth - go to this page

    http://members.dodo.net.au/~mugambi/page6.html

    and check out Melina - a Stone Cold granddaughter - pretty close to my idea of the perfect Boer doe.

    Mugambi have some amazing pedigrees - I do hope I can get more of their blood into my herd. There is plenty of it in the work goats.

    Check out these:
