    Im thinking of emailing these people to see if they would be interested in selling him. What do you think of him? Be honest!!! His name is Good Measure Pedro. I know Good Measure had good animals before they went out of business. I just want to know what you guys think his faults are? No goat is perfect... Thanks! :)

    He looks alright. Long, looks level, but in my opinion he has to much of a uphill stance (from the photo), good rear leg angulation...do not like the front legs on this guy at all. He could use a more extended brisket too. I personally would like to see some "pasture" pics of him just walking around. Also, the udder of the bucks dam is the first thing I look at before even considering the buck. How are this buck's daughters as well? Just some things that should be considered. ;)

    Overall I think he's a nice looking boy! Nice and long, very dairy character, he seems to be "too squatty" in the pic but that could be the way he's being held...a bit too much angulation in the rear leg and he's not set squarly on his front feet..it seems like he's almost on his pasterns instead of strongly set. Seeing his kids as well as his dams udder would be a good start as far as making an offer on him.

    I definatley don't think there is to much rear leg angulation on him...especially since he's set up in that photo. I would say he's just about perfect in that department. Just my opinion of course.

    Maybe it's his "uphill" form that has me seeing too much :? IDK...I'm definately not as educated in these things as most breeders are, I pretty much go by wow factor and udders :wink:

    Not even going to ask for pics... I don't know what I was on when I thought about this buck. Lol :laugh: I hate his front legs, so he is less then perfect. I haven't bought a buck in a year so I guess I have buck fever... My buck in perfect in everyway, he has a WOW pedigree, awesome conformation, and produces excellent animals. I am haveing trouble finding another buck that I don't think is less than perfect. Sorry for the pointless post guys! Thanks for your imput though! :love: :hug: :love:
