LOL!!! No worries! When we had our buck, and he was penned away from the girls at night, I'd let him out with them during the day <we wanted him to have his own hay & all his grain from the piggy girls lol>.
Well when I'd let him out, he would do the same thing, he would squat like he was constipated, and I thought OMG something is wrong with him!!! My heart skipped a beat as we'd been through a lot with him up to that point.
Then he went to the girls acting 'macho' haha...eased my worries. He did that every time I let him out lol

Ahhh nothing like a good old fashioned air hump to set a day right! I saw my now wethered buck do that and almost lost it myself until I realized he was just feeling frisky!
