I have a 2-year-old doe, she was my first kid I've ever had and it was her mom's first kid as well. In May, we took her to a buck and left her there for about 45 days, but she didn't kid at all. End of October, I put her in with my buck, so hopefully, she takes this time?

I'm just wondering if anyone has any experience with this or has had this happen before? Is it just her first time, or is she a faulty doe?

Some does are harder to breed than others. First timers are often scared, so they don't stand still for the buck. After a bunch of her moving away, he may give up. Try holding her still when she is in standing heat and have someone make sure the buck isn't too aggressive.

I'm dealing with an overly aggressive buck and a timid doe. Just as he mounts, he blubbers, scares her and she squats down to avoid him. He is frustrated and I was getting pretty irked. Darn doe!
