Are you trying to sell him or did you buy him?
He looks like he is gonna be on the larger side. He needs some depth of body. I don't know if its his feed, but he looks like he needs feed under that hair. Lots of hair but kind of shallow made. Maybe its the picture. He needs to belly down.

How's that front end come together? Looks alittle forward in his shoulder and straight through his knee, could be the angle

He was just pulled off pasture about three weeks ago when this was taken.  Will try to upload some different pictures once i figure out how to make them smaller KB.

He resembles the Doctor Who side of his pedigree a lot to me, atleast that's the look most of the Doctor Who's I've had had.

Am I missing something, this steer is a 2012 model, he looks like he should have been hit hard with grain about 9 months ago if he is. He has plenty of hair I will give him that, I just think he looks like he is behind where he should be for a 13 month old calf.

He is an "unusual" age calf for where he is.  He is a July calf in Kansas.  He is too young to make it to a Northern State Fair, the wrong kind to be done for KC or NAILE, and too late to have him done for Denver.

However, in a holding pattern for OYE......he is EXACTLY where he needs to be.  He is weighing 700-750 pounds right now, OYE is 180 days out, and he has never seen any amount of feed to speak of. 

As soon as someone in OK buys him, he is gonna EXPLODE! 

I thought he was sort of messed up too, until I asked someone in OK.

I really like him, just don't know what I would ever do with him?

Oh, FYI...To me, the steer is really on the money too!

Cant ask for much better hair.  But I have to agree with showstopper, not sure if its the pic, but he looks forward in the shoulder and straight in the knee.  But he also looks pretty leggy and shallow.  If he had some guts and dimension through the middle you might not notice that to much.  Really long spined calf, but looks really, really green for a 13 month old calf.  What show are you pointing him towards?

Oklahomafarmboy-Right now I'm asking $2,500. I lowered the price some because I need to move him.
  He was never fed the proper amounts of grain needed to boost him when he was younger.  I'm gonna get knocked for doing that but poor people have poor ways. My parents didn't have the time to give the attention he needs. I know if he gets on grain he will explode.

Here is an updated picture of the steer.  He has really changed since the last time everyone saw him.  He is going to California
