Done lost her mind...
How successful can I expect this to be? I got a new buckling yesterday. He's 3 months old. I got him because I have a doe I need bred this month so she'll be in milk for spring shows. I actually thought he was a little older. He humps everything in sight and even sprayed himself with urine when I put him with the bucks. The doe just happened to be in standing heat today so I put them together. He went back and forth from trying to nurse to mounting her. He couldn't reach so I turned over a feed pan and he was able to make entry. She didn't scrunch up the first time so I put them together again later in the day and he did it again and she scrunched up that time. So, even though he was willing and able (with a little help) can I expect him to be fertile enough to actually have gotten her pregnant? I would have liked to have waited to evaluate him a little better, but I needed her bred and he comes from good lines and was recommended to me by a more experienced breeder (she said his mom has a good udder). Any thoughts?
