    Homegrown monsters....

    I know there are a few farmers and ex farmers on here, let's see your pictures of the largest bull / ram / stag etc..... and no parents you can't use a picture of your child

    Sadly dont have pictures but grew up with a small herd of fallow, one year we had a buck fawn, ringed his balls and must have missed one, couple years later we had a unicorn.... literally a white deer with a single spike....

    You're not wrong there.
    Little bugger marches inside and sits on the sofa. Then proceeds to help eat my dinner.

    Perhaps not so good if you are not set up for them.
    Way better than a cat or yappy little house dog.

    ...its when they go back into the herd...prick to deal with in shed... The one we had used to get out of pen or jump out of Pdk into section then walk on deck n poke its head in the deer. Missus got sick of that real quick.

    I bought this billy just after the goat market crash. He was a Lands and Survey embryo transplant goat and was about 7 when I bought him for $150. They reckoned he would have been worth between 75-100k at the height of the boom.... A helluva lot of $$$$$s were lost when that bubble burst. I know of one $3,000,00 angora goat shipment that was ordered and paid for just as the tax loopholes were closed and the industry crashed. The buyer just walked away from the deal; but $3,000,000 lighter in the pocket.....

    52" spread!
