AGS SCORECARD FOR BUCKS

1) General Appearance Vigor, masculinity, blending, style, grace, condition and breed character. 20 Points
2) Head Wide, medium long, broad muzzle with open nostrils, strong jaw, alert eyes and ears. Stronger, rugged, more masculine than that of the doe. Good breed character. 10 Points
3) Neck Long, lean, clean-cut, blending smoothly into all body junctures but very masculine, having a larger circumference than the head, and a huge chest carried higher than the poll. 5 Points
4) Shoulders and Withers Massive and strong, close to body, blend smoothly with body, with well-defined wedge shaped withers. 8 Points
5) Chest, Chine and Heart Girth Wide and muscular, heart girth should be large, fore ribs should be well sprung from the body, chest floor should be wide between the fore legs (not necessarily meaning the brisket should be flat and full), plenty of width at the elbow and strong, level chine. 13 Points
6) Barrel and Loins Ample depth and width, increasing towards the rear, ribs should be wide apart and well sprung. Loin should be strong, level and wide. 10 Points
7) Skin and Ribs Skin should be fine, loose, pliable with fine hair. Ribs should be wider than those of the doe, but not lacking in dairy character. 7 Points
8) Rump Long, wide, nearly level, dropping only slightly from hips to pins. Wide and nearly flat between the thurls. Pin bones and hip bones should be wide apart and well defined. Hip bones should be nearly level with back. Tail should be set in symmetrically with the tail head slightly above the pin bones. 10 Points
9) Legs and Feet Seven extra points are given to the buck's legs and feet, which should be strong and straight, more so in the buck to support his heavier frame. Legs should be wide apart, straight, strong, set squarely under the animal, clean cut, flinty boned, with rear leg tendons well-defined. Pasterns should be strong, springy, and not too long. Feet should be short, straight, heel as deep as the toe.

Fore Legs - 5 points Rear Legs - 6 points
Fore Feet - 3 points Rear Feet - 3 points

17 Points
10) Reproductive System The reproductive system is not on the buck score card because it is either acceptable or it is not. If not, the animal is disqualified. Testicles should be uniform, scrotum should be strongly attached, teats should be cylindrical and well spaced. Extra teats or other abnormalities in the reproductive system of the buck are disqualifying faults. 26 Points
