Yesterday my kids were at a show. My youngest daughters wether went into the ring for the first time and was acting a little naughty at first. Then when she lined up against another little boy <only 2 in this novice class>, he hunched up kind of like a buck does when they urinate on themselves.

Someone told me it was possibly UC that we needed to keep an eye on him. He only did it the one time after acting up a little bit. He's never acted like he's had trouble peeing, and wasn't peeing at that time/trying to pee.

We have a doe that does this once in a while too, but she acts very 'bucky'. Of course I think she's either in heat or someone else is in heat when she does it. She also seems to do it when there is a dominance issue.

So do you think I have to worry? If it were really UC wouldn't it possibly affect him more, or wouldn't he being doing it when he is trying to pee only? Never noticed him do that before, he's clean castrated, but him and the other 2 boys still act naughty now and then lol
This guy is destined for freezer camp after my daughter is finished using him next month.

Here's a pic when he did it

some boys will do that even when wethered -- its nothing to worry about.
Thanks Stacey, that's what I was thinking. This is our first year having wethers, but wanted to be sure. He was fine until he got in the ring and started acting up a bit. Naughty boy lol

LOL thanks! My daughters wether is a Nubian/boer cross. He's very sweet and the quietest of the kids 3 wethers. He's been somewhat a hard keeper though, so this worried me, I was like oh no, no more problems please lol
He'd been having issues with scouring and couldn't figure out what was causing it fecals were good, etc.

This is his usual 'look' haha...

In the picture of him doing the deed in question, his face says it all. He was just a boy being a boy. New place, others around, he wanted everyone to know he is all boy, even if he is missing a couple of things. Even with the testicles gone, there are still other glands that secrete testosterone in small amounts, just enough to make him know he is a male but not enough to make him a buck.

I love the expressions on your daughters face! Priceless!

lol thanks, she has a way with expressions, haha. I agree, I think he was just trying to be a manly wether lol it's funny though, because he is bottom of the pecking order, but he tries so hard to be macho too! Poor guy, last Friday when we were loading them into the trailer, a doe a week older than him slammed him into the side of the trailer and he ended up limping around for a couple of days!
