Just because the deed was done, doesn't mean it took. Good thing you are ultrasounding her.
I really hope that's the case with my one doe, Mocha but unfortunately I kind of doubt it. I had her with the buck THREE TIMES over the fall, and even though she was flagging and yelling and the whole nine yards, when the buck actually went in with her she rejected him every time. She absolutely preferred my herd queen over every other suitor. I held her for the buck the first two cycles because she kept running away. I thought by holding her still we'd at least get the job done even if she wasn't happy about it but no, she came back into heat a third time! This last time I didn't bother trying to hold her. I put her with the buck and left them at it. If she didn't take I'm not going to pursue the matter any further this year. I've never had such a weird breeding season as this one.I have dairy goats, not Boers, but, I have had does that went into heat almost every 20 days their entire pregnancy, one doe insisted on being with the buck. I figured she wasn't bred and let her hang with a buck for 5 months, then she kidded! Surprise!!! :ahh:
They can be confusing critters, for sure!
I've never had one cycle back in after breeding so I'm pretty sure Mocha is still open. My herd queen acted more like a buck than my bucks and she didn't want anything to do with the boys either! I know my guys are young and small and inexperienced and they don't stink like the big boys yet, but they're awfully cute and they sure tried their hardest to do a good job and make the ladies happy! But my girls were all bigger than the boys this year and had no love for the little pipsqueaks. I had to hold three of the four I bred. One was fairly willing but she was also very tall and got bred by the smaller buck so I backed her up to a step a couple of times just to be sure. I backed the others up to the step as well and it looks like my ornery herd queen took but Mocha didn't.Damfino, that is so funny. I know it isn't funny having to deal with a doe like that I am sure! But the way you described it. Wow she is a stinker! I hope she is pregnant. Keep us updated!
