    I have no idea what is going on with these boys ... the girls are all mated and they were really starting to wind down and go off rut, less smell, not much piddling etc. They were getting nice and white and clean.

    And today, they are BLACK! Covered in filth!

    I have no idea why ... :shrug:

    This pic is a bit fuzzy cos it was getting dark but it kinda shows how filthy they are all of a sudden ...

    the weird thing is, normally if someone is in season oh boy, I know about it, cos they will be really stirry, woofing all day, running around, mounting each other etc

    they arent doing that ... in fact they are very settled, just very very very dirty all of a sudden! Like someone painted them black overnight ...

    Guess its just one of those mysteries of livestock ... :shrug:

    Ooh! Maybe it was aliens! :shocked:

    none of the above. Its not dirt, dust or mud. Yep, its buck pee. You know how their front legs get all black from the pee? Well their legs went from reasonably clean to solid black in one night, and it looks like they've been rubbing their black legs and black faces all over one another.

    :shrug: funny boys
