He is a nice looking calf for sure. Love the width down his back, some nice t bones there. Photos are a bit confusing, some he looks badly post legged, others he looks fine. I know 2d photos can lead to the impression of post leggedness, how is he in real life?

His hind end is definitely taller than his front, but I don't find him post legged.. He walks really smoothly, has the 'bull swagger'.

Nice group of steers!

Would you please stop. Maybe it is time you took a vacation from CT for a week or so.
Ever heard of ignore button? If so, put me on the foe list. Im sorry that you don't like what I posted. Again nice steers.

No I don't like what you posted because it is not based on fact. It is you being a snarky smartass troll.

He's looking good Nesi, nice to see him looking "like a bull" at such a young age.

That is a good one Nesi. Long as a freight train and thick to boot. I prefer them a bit shorter legged but I have different breeding here.

I wouldn't mind slightly shorter legged too.. not stubby legged like some Herf's though... I'll have to see how he grows up.

Cry me a river. Get over of it, buddy. Zeus is okay but he will makes a good steer. I just don't like how he looks like, beside being muscular. Pinched and short length.

Muddy, they have eliminated most of the trolls on here, must you feel the need to take over?
I thought they eliminated you. Guess not.

There are few times I thought you pretend to be him to stirring up the forum every time the longhorns or Brahmans were mentioned.

He sure is canted towards the front in the first picture compared to all the cows in the same picture. And all the pictures besides the first picture makes him look post legged. He has a lot of air under him, but I'd sure give him a chance to grow out with his nuts if your looking for another bull.
