This is our first year breeding. We have two does that we are breeding this year and they will be first fresheners. We got them last November and we believe that even without a buck or buck rag we saw at least one heat last year. We got a buck rag from the farm where they will be breed 3.5 weeks ago. The first day we exposed them to it it seemed like they were in heat. They both peed, there was tail wagging, and one was pacing the fence yelling once I took the rag away. We took them to the farm that night to see and they were not in heat. The next day they had very little reaction to the rag. We have exposed them to the rag twice a day since and haven't seen anything that would be heat.. minimal to no interest, limited tail wagging, no discharge. I am concerned that we haven't seen anything yet. Our girls came from a kidding of 6 kids and I have always worried a little that they would have some sort of issue because there was just so many of them! We own a goat milk soap company and have been using milk that is given to us from a breeder (she refuses to charge us and I would hate to expect this from her again next year). In order to continue and grow our business we have to have these girls breed and it is really adding stress on me.
