Yeah I would say 4 year old for sure with that sway in the back and the size of his chest and brisket.
When was the picture taken?

Kind've a fuzzy picture to see some of the facial structure. Body size/characteristics would say he could easily be 5 1/2 in my book. When you unveil the rack and it's a 2.5 year old I will laugh at myself tho! :mrgreen:

Rack size should make little difference in determining age...

Oh, I agree, but I'll still laugh if it has a 6 point basket.

His chest is full and rump is not as rounded and back has a little sway in it. I'd say 5.5. I don't put too much stock in the belly right now because there is alot of browse giving them the gut.
