Hi all,

I have a FF that is due 9th or 12th of Jan. She has been blubbering, like a buck and mounting an older doe, who is due around the 15th. She doesn't bother any other doe. I have 2 others in the same pen. One is just bred on xmas, the other is due the 24th. This queer doe is confirmed pregnant by Bio-Tracking, has started getting a small bag, and also, today, her vulva?, looks twice as swollen as it was yesterday. She has been tormenting this older doe for about 3 days. Not near as bad as today. Today I penned the older doe in another pen. She seemed relieved.
Could it be her hormones are way outa wack. She eats fine.
Also, I brought my buck up to this pen when I bred the open doe, He wasn't the least bit interested in this queer one
What do you think?

Thanks Deb

I sure hope you are right! Poor thing. Guess we have all had raging hormones at some time. :sigh
Thanks Deb

Goat's hormones can get whacky when they are pregnant. My goats have sometimes behaved that way when they are approaching their due date. Right now, I've got two does who have been head butting today. They grew up together and are now bred for the first time. I think their hormones have got them vying for position in the herd.

Hi,
I have a doe like that, in her final month of pregnancy, she would blubber and mount only one particular doe. She kidded this week with a doeling and buck. Since she's kidded, she's stopped blubbering/mounting. :D
