Not long ago we bought a ND buckling with the intention of using him to breed with our few does and keep most of the unregisterable kids. Our younger does won't be ready to breed for at least a few more months, but we are planning to neuter the buck when he is still fairly young - probably by nine months of age (to be done on our property by our goat vet). He is super sweet, so we'd like to keep him around as a pet. So, here's the question . . . for those of you that have neutered/wethered a buck around this age, what were the results? Did he eventually stop smelling? Did he eventually stop urinating on himself? Was he able to live amongst the does or did he continue to pester them/mount them, etc?
