Today I noticed my 2 year old female Nigerian Dwarf trying to mount her 1 year old daughter. I didn't pay much attention thinking they're just playing around or trying to establish dominace but as soon as she "finished" I noticed a significant amount of white discharge dripping from the momma. Is this normal? should I be worried? I do not have a Nigerian Dwarf male with this herd so they will not be bred this year. Does anyone have any advice on this?

1 year old daughter may be a hermaphrodite. OR, maybe the yearling is just a good heat detector. I have a doe that rides around on my does in heat. That is probably what the white discharge was.

Your 2 year old momma doe is in heat and that is why she is doing this ;) We have a 4 year old Nubian who had never ridden her daughter before when she came into heat, but just happened to do it a few days ago. These girls can be strange sometimes, I tell you...
