    Buttercup came into heat in October when a bunch of my does cycled. I chose not to breed her that cycle because I wanted to take her to my friend's to breed her La Mancha. I also didn't want almost the whole herd kidding the same day. I've been watching her since, and have not seen her cycle. I've given up on taking her to the LM buck and have been putting her in with a Nubian buckling every morning for the past few days. She's not shown him any interest. She's my heaviest milker and I need her to freshen. I'm frustrated. She was either bred through the fence when I was breeding the other does (highly unlikely) or her subsequent heats have been silent. She's a 2 1/2 year old Nubian/LM cross. Have any of you had any does who didn't show signs of heat after the first cycle?

    If this was my doe, I would Bio-Pryn her and see if she is pregnant first. Does in heat are capable of some crazy acrobatics and bucks can get very creative.
