Ok - so here is the deal. Last month I decided that I wanted to start my breeding for next year. I had 3 does picked out for my Joe Dirt that I wanted bred immediately. I had 2 possibly 4 that I would like to breed to Lil Man immediately. Joe is almost 2 and proven Lil Man is about 1 and not proven. So last month I saw Joe breed 1 girl as soon as I took him into the pen and she hunched. I then put him in with the 3 I wanted him to breed on and off for a couple days. Lil Man - I put one girl in the milk stand and let him - but couldn't tell if she hunched. Then he was trying and trying the next day with her. About 2 days later my older Nubian stood for him and was actually chasing him down to "do the deed" however she hasn't settled in over a year with breedings so I don't anticipate her taking. So here is the deal - NO ONE is going into heat. I do the cha cha walk every night with Joe and no one shows any signs that I can tell for breeding. Is it just to early? It is starting to get real cold here and I am scared that if I don't get it now I might miss my chance or is that just stupid thinking. The 3 I REALLY want to breed to Joe are all registered Nigerians. I plan on blood testing the one that I saw him breed to make sure she settled - but the other two show no sign what so ever. Blanca, my blue eyed girl when she got pregnant last time at the old owners she said that she was yelling and talking and was all about the buck - but haven't seen even a glance at Joe. Snow would rather run as fast as she can away. Someone please help. I can't leave Joe in with them all the time as i don't have an open area at the moment to do that, so I have to hootchie walk him. Any hints that I can look for??? It is usually dark when I leave at night and dark when I come home. This is killing me!
