Okay where to start. My first question is, when you see a listing for a buck, you almost never see pictures of the buck. You see both the dam, and the sire's dam. I understand why they show the dams, but why do they never show the bucks? Second, and I know someone else asked this, but can you keep more than one buck together? If not, how far apart do they have to be. If they are anything like rams, then obviously not right next to eachother, or they ram the fence. Can you keep anything with a buck, say, a wether, or companion doe? I have 2 does, one Alpine, one Nubian. I want to get a great Alpine buck, and have been talking to the breeder. I won't say who right now. Anyway, I want to have quality animals. I know I'm not going to get quality from My doe, she's an unknown, but hopefully I can use her as an experimental doe and try to bring some color into my herd. Anyway, she said to do this right, I need to have a great foundation doe (makes sense) along with the great buck otherwise I'll spend a lot of time breeding up. Still makes sense. My question is: If you could only afford a certain amount what would you do: Buy the buckling first (You still have to freshen the other doe after all) Buy the doeling first (You can always freshen with another buck from someone else for the time being) Buy both a buck and a doe, but get ones that aren't as nice to start out with I can buy one great one this year, and buy another great one next year, or I can buy 2 that are really nice this year, but aren't GREAT.
