So the time is almost here for me to breed my Nubian doe. As some of you may know I only have two goats and I am trying to alternately breed them so that only one is in milk at a time. I live in an urban area and do not have a buck, nor would it be possible to keep a buck on the property. (I have neither the space nor the resources for him) My problem is two-fold. First, my doe has a pretty much silent heat. I have owned her since July of 2009 and have never seen her display any of the obvious signs of heat. I basically guess based off the behavior of her companion. Secondly, I can't really send my Nubian away for a whole month to guarantee she gets preggers because my other goat would go nutty by herself for that long. And she is LOUD. So basically, I need advice on the best way to get my Nubian knocked up! Should I try to find a buck service that will let me drive her over, see if she stands and then if she doesn't try again in a day or two? That is pretty much all I have been able to come up with so other suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
