    There is some serious courting going on in my backyard. We just picked up our 1yo doe from her mini-vacation she has been on for the last two weeks. She had been nursing off her mom who kidded 3wks ago with triplets, so we sent her off for a couple weeks to give us and her mom a break. Luckily, her mom now seems unwilling to let her nurse so that issue appears to be solved for now. However... she is apparently looking really good to one of the 3wk old bucklings. He obviously thinks he is a big, grown-up buck because he is really getting into trying to make her his girlfriend! It is the funniest thing to watch him curl his lip, stamp his feet and make funny noises, all to get the attention of a goat who is 5 times his size! She, of course, wants nothing to do with him and can't seem to figure out what to do about it. It's rather like the kindergartener who gets a crush on his teacher, lol.
