    So we bred our 2 does. Everything went fantastic. That is up until last night. We have 2 bucks as you all have probably read. So after it was all said and done. We put everyone back where they belonged. And patting ourselves on the back. Because this was our 1st time breeding 2 does. And it went so well. The does are calm want nothing to do with the bucks now. So about 11pm last night I hear my girls yelling. We all jump out of bed and go running outside. Our biggest buck had climbed the fence and was trying to get into their pen. Get him back. Wake up at 5:45 this morning and he is gone again. Run outside and he is in the pen with my 3 does. He climbed both fences. And now he is still trying. But the girls want nothing to do with him. And his sweet brother is behaving. Now I don't know if he rebred them or what. It did not go as we planned after all. I swear sometimes with Tack I could just If the 1 doe was already bred to another buck could the buck that broke in get her pregnant too? I purposesly bred my 84lb doe to my 120lb buck. The one that broke in is 160 lbs. I am hoping that the 5 month old was completely out of heat. Guess I will have to wait till next month for the small one to see. And I don't know how to figure out if my small doe is pregnant by which buck.

    Goats are like that. Are your bucks the same color, and are they both horned? Sometimes you can tell who daddy is that way.
