I have 2 bucks. Both dam raised. Both roughly 7 months old. When I brought them home, they were very stand-offish. I asked (not here) if I should let them remain stand-offish or try to make them friendly and cuddly. I was advised to make them cuddly. So, I spent hours in their pen and one got quite cuddly--would nibble at me until I pet or scratched his head and neck. The other kept his distance and still does, but will take a pet or scratch from time to time. He's harder to catch if I need him, but not obnoxious about attention when I'm in their barn and pen doing chores. The one who got all lovey dovey is now truely obnoxious. He wants to push me around and mount me. I've tried being firm with him, but apparently not firm enough b/c he just enjoys the attention and thinks I'm playing and gets a little rougher with me. While he's 7 months old, this is annoying, but in another year, it could be downright dangerous. I've also tried the friendly route, constant neck scratching, and I just can't get everything done that way. Then my other buck decides he might want some of the action and I have two obnoxious attention hogs. I had planned on having my 2nd barn built by now, and that one set up for the bucks so I don't really have to go in their pen much to tend to them, but we're not there yet. So, what is the best route to take with this guy? I've read about folks flipping bucks (on another board a few months back) and sitting on them for a while... I got him down (not really flipping) this morning and sat on him and he just seemed to enjoy that too much and it was like a license to up the rough housing. At 5 months pregnant and with a nasty case of bronchitis, I don't have the stamina for this! I think the only good thing about their need for attention is that they do very well with hoof trimmings. They like me leaning up against them! They don't listen at all like my girls, though, when I tell them to "get down" and that jumping on me is bad behavior! Suggestions? Help?
