My two bucklings are coming up on three months old and I have never weaned a goat before. Mama (their mom) got mastitis and never nursed them but she watches over them like a hawk. They have been bottle fed. The most Mama will let them do is suck for about three seconds then she wants nothing more to do with it. Do they have to be separated? The three of them are out in the field everyday and the babies usually are able to find trouble on their own or with my wether, JD, rarely going to where Mom is. Also how long does it take? I have no idea where to even begin.
