    but not sure lol. I did not notice anything unusual about her behavior with the other girls until last night and we where out side and she was acting really mean with the other girls, and she had a fit when I tried to touch her udder, and normally thats not a big deal for her and she will just let me no problems, but she was just being a pill last night. then I noticed she had a very small amount of white discharge, and this morning her tail was really messy, so I think that she had her first heat. But the discharge usually means she already had it and thats the end sign, right?

    If she did have her heat, that would mean she will cycle the weekend after we get our new buck Gambler. :) that would be perfect.

    But the other two girls still no sign of a heat with them. :hair:

    yah usually means the last day of heat so if you buck is to arrive in 2-3 weeks you are spot on to get her when her next cycle is.

    Just curious, one of my does had white discharge the day before my buck arrived. She still stood for him. Do you think she took?

    If she stood for him then.... she may of been caught just in time.... test her 18 to 21 days later ......to see if ...she comes in again....it is a 50...50 chance... that she took or not..... white color means... they are at the end of a cycle and going out..... good luck.... :thumb: :hug:

    Its been a month since they bred and they share a fenceline. All of my does bred within a few days of each other with her being the first. They share a fenceline with the buck and there has been absolutely no interest by either her or the buck. In fact although he was in full rutt and very,very bucky when he arrived, in month since they were all bred he has settled down and this last week isn't even peeing on himself anymore

    More great news, Posha now just had a heat cycle, so this is great she too will be in just after Gambler gets here.
