Have seen pooch test up on the board a lot even done it before, but what are we looking for on the pooch and how can you tell they are breed or not

We are only second year goaties so still learning.
Thank you all for your help and experience.

I can usually tell once they are 2 months along, but if you know your goats and are in tune to every detail...like I'm fanatical about mine, you will notice even a slight difference.

The tip of the vulva is normally pointed up, once bred and settled it points down and will look to be flat. At 2 months along, the entire area under the tail has a soft relaxed look, anus isn't tucked up but has a droop to it and by the time a doe is in her 3rd and 4th month the area is soft and fluffy looking.

Ok that makes a lot of senses. I have a ff that was in with buck for a month before I bought her. She came back in heat so they put her back with him for only a few days before I came to get her. I want to make sure she is breed with their buck if not will need to use mine.
Thank you
