Here are some pics of my young buck. He has now bred all of my does so the deed is done here, but I am interested to hear what you all think of him now that he is grown a bit more. He is just on pasture here, no grain. Keeping in mind that i am looking for show wethers, Here is what I think. I like most things about him but I think he is a bit weak in his top line. I like his length but not his width. Especially across his shoulders. Please don't hold back any criticism to spare my feelings. I am trying to learn. He gets to stick around until I get a good look at his produce not matter what, but your opinions really help. Thanks!

Thank you both for your comments, Ya, i guess he does have a booty! Right now, because he is with the girls, he only gets his share of what I throw out to bring in the herd at night. It is about two cups of feed spread out in the feeder for 11 goats. He has actually grown a ton on the last month since he moved in with the ladies. I can't wait to see what he produces. It's funny, I have to take pictures and study them to really see what he looks like. All I see when I am out in the pen is a big crying lug begging for attention.

Oh thank you all. My breeders remorse is easing up a bit! The topline has bothered me so much I guess I have missed some of his better qualities. :)

Good twist, lots of butt, good shape to thigh, and looks like good bone. He should produce some very nice wethers for you.
