Okay so being that I have mainly boers and angoras, I really only paddock mate. Today I handmated for the first time - I noticed Calamity was riding the other does, and I thought huh I wonder if she is in season. So I put the baby buck in the yard with her and sure enough he was chasing her all over, mounting but he couldnt actually get his equipment out. So anyway, she was SUPPOSED to be penned with Da Vinci but he kept jumping out back into the bachelor pad. So I put halters and leads on the two of them and I held the doe while the buck did his business (I wanted to hold the buck's lead and let the doe loose but they were in the backyard and she decided the roses were better than playing up with the buck). Anyway, Da Vinci did his thing and she hunched up nicely then piddled all over his face. She stood well for the service. When he tried again (basically straight away), she wouldnt stand. Is that normal? I mean for a doe to want a 'recovery period' after a service. About an hour after I gave him another go, she stood nicely again, but he didnt want a second go this time so I dont know if she would have fidgeted again.
