    We have a friends buck at our place to breed with our girls. Bill (yes they named him Bill) he a very nice boy.
    He seems to be healthy and is happy to be around so many pretty girls!
    :eek:hlala: :lovey:
    His fur is a mess! Forget combing it. :hair: I trimmed some of the fur. It is really dirty with some matted fur worse
    than I thought. I think it would be better to clean it first.
    :snowbounce: Too cold here for a crew cut or a bath. Suggestions? :scratch:
    His hooves are another problem. I want him use to me before that. Did I mention that he has horns?

    Sounds like my gross billy. Combine contant peeing on his face, belly, legs, heck he even tries to reach his back I swear... with dirt, hay, etc. Its not pretty. I have no advice, I can't groom mine till spring.

    Its like a 250lb feces covered angry ShiTzu with a hangover

    I would just leave the mess alone. Animal see mess/yuck/and stink a whole lot differently than we do. To them the stronger the aroma the better the man/buck. The worst of the bunch in the aroma catagory wins the draw every time.

    The horns work in your favor for hooves, Just take a rope and tie his horns to a tree. He cant jab you or move alot, Problem solved.

    200lb nubian/alpine does as experience.
