    Have any of you neutered an older buck? I have this 4 year old pygmy/nigerian/fainter cross buck that is gorgeous, but i have decided that i don't want to breed any more. I haven't had any success in selling him. So now wondering if I should just spend the money and have the vet neuter him. I could then probably use him at least in our traveling petting zoo, or at least could keep him in with the girls and wethers. He has to be separate because I can't have the other goats stinky when we go out to the general public.
    He also is an escape artist though, so neutering will probably not solve that problem.
    Anyone have some thoughts on this?

    Well I did two of my boys but they were not that old, mine were only 9 months old butthe vet aid they were built like bulls.

    I had great success.
