    I have a 2 1/2 year old Nubian doe in milk That went into heat and bred on 8-17. Then she went into heat again and bred again yesterday 8-23 and she is not telling him no today. Is this just something that happens on some does and I have never noticed it or is this strange and unusual.
    Thanks

    I just had that happen last month. I don't think it is unusual, but doesn't happen all the time.

    She is just short-cycling. She will take on the second breeding. It happens here fairly often on the first cycles of the year.

    Thanks for the responses, I just couldn't remember ever seeing this before and thought it was a little strange.
