Can you get me a shot from directly behind a of the front and rear legs all the way to the hoof? I’m a former Ag teacher, FFA sponsor and American Farmer. I’ll be happy to.

Does he looks good I’m on sites because my ag teacher is never helping us with anything so I’ve never really known if any of my goats looked good for the 5 years ive been showing

Balance is comprised of 3 areas: body, width, depth and length.
He is wide based with excellent body width and depth. He is nicely balanced.

Style evaluates 4 areas: top line, neck, breast and shoulder symmetry.
He has a long neck that sits high on the shoulder, a clean breast and a smooth neat shoulder that blend well from neck to fore rib. The top line is not straight. There is a noticeable dip where the rump meets the loin.
(You get honesty)

Freshness is comprised of an appearance of being healthy and a smooth slick coat. He does very well here.

A very nice goat who,will do well in shows unless he comes up against a goat that is equal everywhere and has a better top line.

Sorry about that dip he has a really straight back I was kind of having him extend more than he comfortable with and if he does have a dip is their any way to fix it?

Don’t have him over extend. It can cause that when showing. Let him be comfortable, to an extent. You can fudge it a little with grooming, but you have to be really good at it, and a good judge will spot it anyway. Not much you can do about it if there is a dip. It really will take a nearly perfect goat to beat him. He’s very nice.

Some just don’t know and have never judged animals. I’m very hard on top lines in all species...just my thing. All judges have things they’ll pick one more than others. And it is a personal thing.
