    Ok if your gander is a year old i can explain if hes older well maybe he likes it that way :-D but ganders that are more then a year have never done it before so he will figure out what feels better for him

    At this age he is experiment around to see what feels best to him. So he is confused because he is not old enough to know just where and what to do.... Even females will mount the ganders when young so it is play time right now.......[​IMG]
