    Need some help here. I have one doe who still hasn't settled this year (Oberhasli); she often comes back into heat 5 days after the previous heat.
    She most recently came into heat on the 11th...and is still in heat!
    I've put both my Nigerian bucks in with her and my Ober buck just in case it's the buck (though he's settled all the other does he's bred).

    My doe has been bred on every cycle and multiple times every day since the 11th. All my other does have settled except this one, and she has always settled every other year.

    Any advice?

    She may be cystic. If so, your vet should be able to give some hormone shots for her that will help get her back to normal.
