Oooh! I wanna share my new (well i have had him for a while like 2 weeks or so) Boer breeding buck! Today (July 9th) is his 4 month birthday. His show name is "The Last Riot" i have a show up in Harrisonburg (about 2 hours from my City, Fredericksburg) in September . Hes worth over $600 and his sire is Ennobled. His sire's sire is also Ennoble. Actually all his grandfathers are ennobled, on both sides. Heres his 4 moth confo pictures (taken today).

Well i dont really know anything about goats, so i cant really help you there, but he is really cute!

are you going to breed him?

He doesn't look too bad but he needs to fill out with muscle. Walk him and walk him a lot like you would a dog it will take some getting used to if he hasn't done it before. For meat goats they want to see muscle mass the more the better and no fat. If you can get him to do jogs and small jumps that helps build muscle to. How old is he about 3 months? he looks about the size Ike was when we got him.

oh if you have a treadmill they work great! lol my daughters ag teacher walked his on a treadmill during the winter months when it was too cold and icy to be out walking.

Thanks guys! Yes, hes going to be a herdsire. We're going to start buying does (nannies) this November i think. When ever we sell our house we're buying goats (after the school year starts).

Hes actually 4 months :p, and i have a treadmill but i dont think he'll walk/run on it, but ill try xD
