I took my Annabelle to visit her new boyfriend today. This is day 21, and she was showing signs of heat again. I called on a neighbor to help, so she drove and I sat in the back seat of my F150 truck with Annabelle with the front half of her in my lap. She rode very well and we got to the farm that has the buck, put her in the stall with him. You would have thought I turned her in with a pack of lions! She was so scared she was shivering. The buck all of a sudden turned bashful and wouldn't look at her! I led her over to him to show her he wasn't going to eat her, turned her butt to face him, and he really looked bashful! He is a 10 year old Reg. buck that has lots of experience with breeding, but he wouldnt do anything... The breeder said to just leave her in there with him overnight, that he was a gentle breeding buck and he wouldnt hurt her. As soon as I walked out of the barn Annabelle started calling for me... We are very bonded. I tell you, that was SO HARD to do.. it was like leaving my own kid at kindergarten for the first time.. In the past, I have taken my pygmy does to be bred and it was wham bamm.. all over in 10 minutes.. What gives???
