Getting ready for breeding

Mr. QMr. Q’s snorts, blathers and urgent bleatings serve as a daily reminder that he wants to get busy, now that breeding season is nearly here.  Bucks can be quite aggressive when in rut, but fortunately, Mr. Q’s good nature and small size help to keep him manageable.

For the next few weeks, the girls will be getting extra grain and one more worming in preparation for breeding. They should be in good condition, but not fat. Our first kids will drop in mid-June, when the goats are on pasture.
