    My boys, Hank and Teddy have officially gotten "ewww gross nasty bucky!" they are normal bucks up to August, then they turn into these continuous wet faced, head beating ,growling, vocal and obnoxious boys!
    Chief will be back home Friday so he can join in the fun of beating his head on the walls and spitting at the girls on the other side of the fence.

    My girls are showing the change over too....milk production has slowed to the point of me starting once a day milkings.....AND can you believe that Bailey, Heidi and Binky are all in heat AT THE SAME TIME? It has been a very noisy day here today :hair:

    Mine are also ---- 3 bucks and 2 rams ---- the other buck I sent off to be with the girls (thank goodness). I won't start breeding my nigis till late Oct/Nov/Dec sometime - so this is going to be bad when the landlord comes on Friday (first time wide has EVER been to Idaho - let alone seen the house) and she gets to see a bunch of stinky boys in rutt - :help:
  5. Boy I wish Jester knew. He started almost two mouths aga. :roll:

    Not here..yet! Boys are still living harmoniously and with little stink.. Girls have not come into heat yet.. We plan on starting in October this year so we will see.. I am sure in the next few weeks "Love" will be in the air!
