Theo's 905 Otter Buck:
There is not much I can say bad about this buck, he came into our barn a little over 2 years
ago and there has been no looking back.
I have to say when he first came in and after the long flight and the long drive to my house
he was not looking what I would call to great...he had his head down on the table and just kinda looked like he was what we
call on OK buck. Matter of fact I gave another buck to a friend that needed a boost on her dwarfs, since he came out of the
carrier and was up and showing himself off, so I figured he was going to be the best buck. Then after about 3 weeks went by
we took 905 out again and posed him up and thought man you are not looking to bad after all...
Took him to just some of the local shows and one convention, to me he was more valuable to
make me babies that do the show thing. Well he went to 7 shows and 6 of those were local, he now has 6 legs and the one he
lost was to his son, at the convention that year he took 10th place otter senior buck.
I am not sure where our otter program would be with out 905, he has been the main herd buck
for most of our otters and has greatly improved our otters and his offspring is usually as good or better than himself.
Thank You Theo for parting with this buck. It turned out with talking with Rick Smith and Joe
Kim that 905 is related to the 114 buck that Rick Smith has gotten most of his nice animals out of, they have the same sire...We
only found that out about 6/04.
