Tonight we went out to feed the goats and our sweet,precious "baby" wether was ramming our mini Nubian babies. He was ramming them when they were standing on the hay feeder. That's a no no. I was just wondering WHY is he doing this? He has never done this before. Just didn't want him injuring our mini nubes.


Thanks! Cade

Its so hard to watch them treat others harsh..he is being dominate, as Karen said hes teaching them hes the boss..If you can have a seperate feeding station set up so they are eating, that might help..watch them careful that he does not hurt them...

Because he can. He is bigger, stronger, and can dominate them. Either sell him, rehome him, put him in the freezer, separate him from the younger doelings, or tolerate his domination of them - those are your only options because, chances are, he will always be bigger and stronger then they are.

He has never been like this and the nubians have been here for a few months now and they've never had a problem with each other. We feed them separately because they're still young and they won't be able to eat because of the bigger does. If it continues he will be spending his time with the stinky bucks for sure. Thanks.
