Sorry for such a graphic pic but I'm concerned. This is one of my favorite goats. She is about 4 years old a boer cross and has been kept with our buck since April. I just notices she has something around her anus....it almost looks like warts? Does anybody have any advice? Is this normal? Should I be worried? Thanks in advance!!

That's normal. It is hardened grease from the oil glands above her anus. They should come loose and wipe off fairly easy, they will build back up again however.
From that picture she is also bred and will need removed from the buck soon.

Goathiker, I am NOT challenging you here:D! You are clearly one of the most knowledgable people on TGS, but how on earth do you know that!? The pooch test thing just confounds me! What tells you she is bred?

Well, her vulva is elongated and points straight down. An unbred doe's vulva tip points outward. Her tailhead muscles are loosening causing her anus to 'smile' instead of glare. :) I'd guess she's about 3 months along...

Thank you Goathiker.:) I have spent a long time looking at pooch test threads without much luck figuring out what is going on. :D if TDG causes you trouble I'll donate my pet bull snake (lives under my house) to your cause.:D

Curious question...? Does this happen right after the deed is done, or does it take awhile? Curious because my bucks were found with the does a couple days ago, and I just left them there until tonight, they are now in their pen with new fencing, so I was curious.... Thanks Goathiker:)

My buck keeps trying to mount her...I've seen him chase her around and paw at her for days. She doesn't let him and runs away but if she is bred would he still be trying as hard as he is?
