    I've been trying to breed my LaManchas. I know she's in heat. Her vulva is swollen and there's discharge. She's wagging her tail and just pee-ed on his face, but she won't let him catch her. I tried tying her, but I'm scared she'll hurt herself. It seems to be going a little better since I stepped inside. I'd like to do some work out in the yard, but every time I go out there she runs and hides behind me. Wedged between two sexed up goats is not fun.

    You should really just leave them alone. She just isn't in standing heat yet...this is flirt mode!

    It's so frustrating. I have another buck I'm pretty sure is gay.

    Yeah, the things they do to each other, and themselves, are pretty shocking. [​IMG] The one I think is gay just doesn't get as excited over the ladies. He is very interested in the LaMancha buck. I'm hoping it's a phase. [​IMG]

    If she's in standing heat, she will no be buck-shy.
