    It's just something they like to do :) especially if he was a bottle baby. If you want him to stop just firmly push his mouth away from your hand when he does it and he will learn

    Yep I have a year old doe that like to nibble... She is getting better, though it doesn't really bother me as she isn't bitting.. more like looking for treats LOL!

    If it hurts just do what HaleyD said. I personally think it's a bad habit (being a horse person too). But I do let my goats nibble once in awhile, as long as it doesn't get out of control.

    One of my five month old wethers like to nibble my fingers...and when I'm not paying attention it does hurt!
    I can tell when he going to start, so I just move my hands away from his face...he's beginning to get it, but still tries! ;)
