    At what age do you classify a doe a Jr or Sr doe?

    What age do you classify a buck a Jr or Sr buck?

    I am wanting to revamp my entire website and am looking for the correct terms.

    Thank you

    (So if you see me bumping around your website I am just "peaking" at how you have it arranged and thanks in advance!)

    Well, I have three pages for our does. Senior does (2+ yrs) yearling does, junior does (any doe that is a year and under, not freshened. We don't have any first-fresheners yet, but when we do I was going to merge the yearling does and first-fresheners together since we do not have that many goats. Hope this helps some! :) Oh, we only have one buck - but we if were to have more, I would classify a Sr. buck as such when he turns two years. Just my thoughts though. . . . . :)

    Dry Yearlings are considered Juniors still. As soon as they freshen they are considered a senior.

    I just made a junior does and yearling does page to kind of separate the two. Right now we have a few jr. does that are quite young and some that are getting closer to the yearling mark, so that's why I did that. It also makes the page not so long. :)

    all my milking does are on my sr. doe page, anything not freshened is on the jr. doe page. Bucks all go on one page because i dont have many, i go youngest to oldest and then my reference bucks are also on that page.
