As sad as it is, with Sinatra's passing being so recent, I had to scramble to find another buck for my registered Nigerian does in case they weren't settled by Sinatra before he died. They're full siblings to my Billy buck, and I don't want to breed them to Hank or Virtue (NMGA bucks).

So, guess who I found? Sinatra's daddy


I'm going tomorrow (road trip) to pick him up. All I have are some crummy photos of him, so I'll take new ones once he's home and post those. He's blue eyed, and is black roan with frosting and pinto markings. I didn't ever intend to have three black bucks
but ah, well! I saw this buck's entire spring kid crop earlier this year. Most of the kids were their dam's color, he only passed on his color to two of his daughters...so perhaps he'll follow suit here. Also, he knocked one of his horns off fighting with a ram...they call him their "unicorn". hehe

A little good in all the bad.

What a pick up that was. They had him in a small area made of cattle gates and field fence. He was fine, friendly - until he realized they were trying to catch him! He simply ran through one of the gate joints and was loose in about a 3 acre field. We finally lured him back, all aprehensive, with food. The owner's husband was able to catch him by his one horn and somehow held on while he fought.

Anywho...he's home. He is FILTHY and RUTTY!
The one horn is going to have to go...he knows exactly what to do with it when he's cornered (and it looks dumb!)

Quote:LOL None of my other bucks hold a candle to this guy! He's in for a bath!

Redhen - he injured and subsequently lost the left horn fighting with a ram sheep.
