    Excuse my ignorance about them but is he a fainter? I was offered a buck fainter one time and he was not so attractive, lol. So I kind of thought them not the best looking goats, but Im learning different lately. He is really GORGEOUS!! Hes changed my mind for sure.

    Yes, he is a fainter. :) I need to get good pictures of him.... but these were the best I could get as he was still trying to unfold after being in a crate for 7 hours. :)

    Re: YAY!!!! He's HOME!!!!!

    Thank you!.... yes, blue eyes are pretty common in fainters... actually everything is... they come in all colors, all hair lengths, blue, brown or any color in between for eye color and polled, horned or disbudded.... you get a great variety with the fainters. It's one of the many reasons that I love them. :) Thank you again for the compliments!

    Liz.... he is VERY wide.... when you look at him in person it is just amazing that he is only 8 weeks old for how much width and muscling he has.... especially since he was one of triplets.

    Well, here are some updated photos of my sweetheart at 16 weeks old. He still tries to climb in my lap every morning but it's definitely NOT as comfortable as it was 8 weeks ago! LMBO :doh:

    WOW he's only 16 weeks in that picture? He is a fast grower!!! He already looks so masculine and fleshed out, it's amazing.

    Yes! He's actually pretty short (the first rail in the fence behind him is 2 ft off the ground.) He is really an impressive little buckling in person though! I'm pretty darn happy with him. :) Of course I'd still love him even if he were hideous because he's so laid back and super friendly. :) Oh I counted it out and he is 17 1/2 weeks old on the side view picture.

    Thanks everyone! I know I'm such a nerd for being so excited about this breeding.... but I'm selling Bree after she kids so all of her kids out of this breeding will be staying here and will be DISBUDDED!!!!!!! So fingers crossed for me that I get some GIRLS!!!!!!!!
