with momma and her sister.  Didn't act studdy but did "pick" a lot, in rough
play.  Still does at 10 yrs.  he did not drop the other testicle until 3 1/2
yrs!  We then had him gelded that winter.
I wish I could have gelded him early.  He is slightly built everwhere
except...there!:)  And still picky and somewhat rude...we are working on
