Goats in heat...

Speck went into heat. Poor Speck.

We decided not to breed the does this year. We want to do a little goat experiment and try a 2 year lactation....

Maybe I should rephrase that. Not so much poor Speck but...

Poor Mario.

Our buck is on the other side of the fence from Speck who is peeing and flagging her tail in front of him. He's moaning and crying and it truly sounds like he is dying a very slow and terrible death in his pen. He's fine... just a little... um... well... "blue".

We got a call from a woman who wants to bring a doe for breeding this month. Unfortunately, I don't speak goat-ese and I can't tell him he is gonna get a little lovin' this year.

Poor Mario.

Hope Mario has calmed down a bit. This must be a tough time for him. Good luck with his new girl-friend.
Happy Thanksgiving to you.
