    Here are pics of my 2 week old nigerian bucklings. Goat people...what do you think? I'm learning, and trying to figure out what qualities to look for in a nigi...hoping that I have done well with my breedings. I would like to get better pics, but the little boogers won't hold still!

    Instead of critiqueing can I just say cute and healthy looking? I'm not a show person and not familar with the standard for nigi's. But if I had to choose one based on pics it would be the second picture because I like the straighter back. He looks like he is stacked nicely. The others just might not be standing as squarley, which would make their backs look uneven.
