I've been waiting patiently for JCKN Goose on the Loose ( Jack) to show some interest in the girls. On September 23rd I finally caught him acting like a buck! I suspect my daughter's lamancha doe Daisy was bred that day and possibly Violet. Scampi & Garden went in with him on 10/3 then I gave him a chance with herd queen Esther on 10/4 and now he's got the 3 yearlings Georgette, Cranberry & Snow.
Fingers crossed for pregnant test results in a month :storkgirl::storkboy:

Those girls have grown! Looking good. I think Jack did all he needed. He's a good looking young guy! Now we just get to wait & see!

Thanks everyone! I'm excited to see what he throws. My husband caught him breeding one of the yearlings last night ( he thinks Snow he can't tell them apart lol). He seems to be a shy breeder he quit as soon as he noticed him watching. I've never caught him just noticed gunk on the girls backsides after he shows some interest in them.

See that's when I wanted to start breeding but Jack disagreed with that plan. I'll be watching for baby's from yours though :)

Well Jack apparently stinks at his job 1 out of 9 :( . I do find it kind of odd that so many girls have the same number usually they're all over the place? Now to decide if I should wait on him to figure it out or scrounge up the money for a new buck

Definitely has a super low sperm count.

I would get another buck if you need breeding done now.
As it takes time and money to try to figure out the bucks issue. If you wanted to go that path.

I can't imagine the vets in town being much help with figuring out his issue either unfortunately. I'm hoping he's just a very late bloomer.he's never really gone into rut. He showed some interest in the girls but he won't touch them when we're around and watching. For now I'm starting them back on a mineral with higher copper levels and back on weekly replamin as I've been slacking and see if that helps.

Well..if its a mineral deficiency...there is a chance you will later. At least 1 girl got settled. We get to see that one...right?
