Mattie and Lear's babies are growing by leaps and bounds! They are so much bigger than all the others, yet 2 days younger. Here is the steel buck:

Look at the size and depth of him, and only 7 weeks old! His chestnut brother (whom I'm keeping) is just as big, and as nice, but I've always had a soft spot for the steel buck. I'm keeping the chestnut because I don't want the steel gene in my bloodlines, eventually I want to breed a black from this line into my tan line, but not until I've eliminated the steel gene. If someone wanted to experiment, and didn't mind the steel gene, this guy would be prime. Or, he'd make someone a nice wooler. He's friendly, cooperative, and gentle. Just like his dad, Lear. :)
