Well here I sit reaking of buck, sticky with buck urine and feeling utterly defeated. Most of my herd was lined up to be bred to my three Junior herdsires. Two February Nubian bucklings and one March Lamancha buckling. They have all been exercising, stretching and peeing on themselves for a month at least. So a few days ago I put the Lamancha in with a visiting doe so he could bring her in heat. This guy knows what its all about and I have no doubt that he got her bred yesterday. Yesterday Peppercorn came in heat so I put she and Camaro(one of the Nubian bucklings) in the breeding pen together. He is absolutely clueless. Didn't smell her, didn't even check her out and she didn't like him at all. I left them together all night and this morning I could all but swear that he didn't touch her at all. She is still in heat this morning but I can't breed her to another buck just in case Camaro did get her. But I am sure he did not. He is completely contented now back in his own pen. This morning Bess is in heat. She is lined up to be bred to Eric(the other Nubian buckling). He didn't know what to do with her, even though he has always been very bucky and reaks to the heavens. She hated him and I was afraid she would intimidate him into being afraid of does in general. After leaving them together for a couple hours, he just yelled the whole time for me to let him out, I took her out and bred her to Copper Hill Little Buddy, my 5 year old buck. He had her bred in about 5 minutes. I think I am going to have to end up having to breed all my mature does to my mature bucks and only covering my later-bred doelings with the young bucks. But maybe they will feel like it next month......... Anyone got any tips on getting a couple of extremely masculine stinky bucklings to get a clue??? They are simply not interested at all. My breeding program is already starting a month later than I like. I cannot afford to wait for these two little guys. If they cannot do the job on the does first heat, the doe must go to another buck. Frustration, frustration!! I have *never* had a buckling who couldn't get the job done when they were left overnight with the doe! I have tried every way I can think of to introduce them to these does in heat and its a no-go.
