    how many of you, have had a doe that acts like a buck. Flickering the tongue in the other does faces, making little sounds and riding the other does as a buck does before bred. :doh: ? But gets preggo every time, she is bred with a buck? What is up with that? :shrug: :)

    Its just a dominance thing. She is either high up in rank and reminding the others, or trying to get a bit higher up.

    Charlotte tends to do that when I let her off the chain in the showring, but she doesnt do it at home.

    that makes sense, because i bought her like 3 weeks ago, so she must be trying to get higher. thanks keren

    You can often notice it alot around feeding time if you feed with communal troughs as opposed to individually feeding them. They will have a few mouthfuls, then woop woop woop like a buck and blubber at whoever is next to them. I'm bigger than you, its my food.

    Xcell got wicked bucky when she was in her last month of pregnancy. So weird. I just figured it was all the hormones.

    Spice is mounting everyone lately so I figure she is just being dominant.

    The weird things goats do. :slapfloor:

    There is one other case where a doe can act like a buck and that is when they have cystic ovaries. They have short cycles and irregular heats, and failure to concieve. Obviously not the case with any of your bucks because they are obviously breeders.

    I've seen normally not bucky does get bucky when another one is kidding and they lick and smell the fluids.

    Ah, goats, gotta love em!

    Yup i had a doe that did that every year. Patti even when so far as to put her nose under her belly and arch her back like a buck does when he pees on his face. then she would do the flehman thing.
    She continued to do this every month up until she had her kids then would act like a normal doe.

    Kadabra does the tongue flapping and riding on anyone else that comes in heat, even though she's supposed to be preg. And Cameron, poor thing... after he bred Ophelia and I put him back in with the other boys, he cried and cried, too... not wanting to go back into the buck pen. Can't much blame him though! The other boys wouldn't leave him alone either... I assumed it was because he smelled like the girls!

    She is a great teaser doe for ya, if she lets you know when everyone is in. :)
    It is very strange though, like she should of been born a buck, LOL :shades:

    Cameron, I feel sorry for him to, my other bucks of the past, have done that to. It is because of the doe odor, so they swear that there is a doe in with them and chase them and the buck being chased, screams and yells, as if being attacked. You feel sorry for them. :shocked: but it does simmer down after a while. :help:
