This is what we call blubbering. It's a flirting tactic. You should not let him do it toward you, he might start thinking you are a doe (more than he does already 😉). I would recommend having a spritzer handy. It is probably happening now because the rut is starting. You may also notice him peeing on his front legs and face or making some strange noises. Love is in the air...😘

Aw... he's in love!!! :love:
Too bad he's crushing on YOU! As the others have said, you'll need to put a stop to that or he'll not only become gross—he'll become aggressive as only a frustrated lover can be.

Do you have other male goats that he hangs with? Do you plan on breeding him? If he's not a breeding goat and you are keeping him as a pet then you should get him wethered (neutered) as soon as possible and avoid all of this buck rut nonsense before it gets bad. It will make both your lives soooo much easier!

Nigerian are year round breeders but there is a peek time when this behavior is stronger. He's older this year too. I have two nigie boys and the older one, Kimchi, is definitely more into hearing his own love calls then Levi is lol. It just depends on each boy.
