I do have 3 generations of one family, but they aren't mean, maybe a little pushy at times. But just looking at them doesn't answer my question. This is going to be long, I tried a short verson, but it didn't work. I've got a doe that is a beach with a capital "B". She has a wether for a companion. She is not allowed with the other does/doelings because she does not play well with others. She has never liked her wether buddy, but used to let him sleep close to her. Now he stays far away. He is twice, if not more, bigger than her. As soon as I can I will be moving him out of her pen, for his own saftey. Beleive me, this doe will be fine without a goat companion. The only time she likes another goat is when it is a buck and she is in heat. Last spring she had a kid. I was so hoping that she would then have a buddy for life. How could a mom not like her own kid. Well she didn't. Within 24 hours I had a bottle baby. Baby Girl as the kid is still called, spent the first couple of months by herself. The other kids where older and bigger than her and she traveled with me out of state for several weeks. Once put in with the does/doelings, she was picked on. But learned how to be a goat and get a long with the group. Now she is turning into a smaller verson of her mother. If she keeps going at the rate she is going, she will be competing with the does for top position pretty soon. She is already ahead of one in the pecking order. She hasn't bullied her way past all the doelings yet. Just like her mom, she is just the sweetest thing to me, and other humans. But I am wondering what she is going to turn into. She won't be a year old until May. Is she going to turn out like her mother? Will she ever be able to raise her own kids? Or will she turn on them, like her mother did?? Due to what I went through to get her into this world and alive, and having traveled with her and bottle raised her, she is a keeper. But I am just trying to figure out if she is going to turn into as big a pain in my back side as her mother is??
