I know bucks can live together and be fine for the most part, but I was curious if two horned boer bucks would be fine? I'm sure they were but we have contemplating getting a young buckling to be with our boer that is a year old or getting a buck about the same age. Thoughts?
Also... We have the does separated and the only time they would be near the does is when they are in stalls in the barn but that is primarily dying colder seasons.

Alright awesome. I have always seen posts on bucks staying together but they never clarified on if they were dehorned or not.

Yes, you have to watch for a while, some get out of control and start really hurting the other.
Some cannot have a buddy, but many do get along and butt heads once in a while without causing pain or injury.
