Springs Run Merry Brandybuck+S

"Merry" possesses one of the sweetest dispositions for a buck that I have ever known. He has mixed very well with my doe herd, adding an extra level of refinement that I have been looking for. He has also proved himself to be very consistant and prolific. I am pleased to have lots of his semen stored for future use. I have also employed to of his handsome sons as service sires and kept some of his lovely daughters to carry on his genes in my herd. Merry has a clean neck and legs and a very well shaped head with a kind, docile expression in his eyes. He has a very tight front end assembly from his withers down to his feet, lots of width throughout and a nice rear leg set when viewed from both the rear and the side. I had the opportunity to meet Merry's wonderful dam and sire in the fall of 2002 (when visiting his breeder Janet Shlanta), both of whom look even better in person than in their photos.
