    My nupine goat takes her head and swings it all around 360 - why does do this - is she just looking around- or is she possessed. :scratch:

    I have a goat that does that also. As long as they are not acting weird and like star gazing or "off", they are just being a cute goats.

    I have one that does something like that too...she really likes to put her feet up on the wall and tip her head back and look at me upside down. I guess it's just something some goats like to do for fun. :shrug:

    I've only noted it in goats who have chocolate color. Ie chocolate chamoisee, chocolate buckskin or solid chocolate etc. I have just one now who on a rare occasion does it. I've had does in the past who were pretty persistant about it. Don't know. Guess they get to see all the way around them that way?

    Yeah, lots of our goats like to head twirl. I think it's funny. :slapfloor:

    I have had goats do it for attention like "mom come on!" and others who only do it when in heat.

    Well, at least it isn't nose grabbing.
    Daisy does it as a sign of affection---but its not appreciated.
    I had to take her in for a vet check---and right when i was about to warn the vet, she was already trailing her nose gently across his cheek, making soft sounds in her throat, all angel eyes and then CHOMP.
    It...was...so...HUMILIATING..... :angry:.
    Anyway, I had 3 does who did the upside down view thingy. Their just being cute. :)

    My Alpine does that. She gets up on the gate and does that. It always freaks me out, because she looks like she might fall over backwards and break her neck. I told you I'm a worry wart!

    Hahaha I used to have a doe that did that. She wasn't chocolate, she was black and purebred LaMancha. She had some other weird issues that made us think she wasn't quite right in the head, but she would climb up on the fence, throw her head back, curl up her top lip, and do the head twirl. She'd also balance against the side of our house that way. I always thought maybe she was trying to find a way over the fence (Our fences are 7 feet high) or onto the roof of the house, since she could see up there from the ground.
