Within the past three weeks I have bought some goats. The first that I have had in a long time. Two are bred %Boer does ages 4 and 3 years. Another is a 4 month old % Boer doeling. And the last one I got tonight is a full Boer buckling 5 months old. I have kept the older does together in my east pasture. They came from the same farm. The older doe tries to bite the younger ones through the fence. Tonight when I unloaded the Boer buckling he went over to the fence to check the older does out. The older doe grabbed his ear and tried to pull him through the fence. I will keep the young billy in the barn lot for a week and then turn him out in the bigger pasture with the 2 other does. Do you think the older doe will attack him and hurt him? Or will she just harass him for a little while and then leave him alone? Will she bite on the other does babies when they are born? She is definately the dominant one in the bunch. When I first brought her home she and my big Barbado ram started fighting. I now keep the goats seperate from the Barbados. The little Boer doeling will never be put in with the other goats, she has her own pasture (because she is a pet) so I won't ever have to worry about the bigger goats picking on her. Will this aggression eventually cease to exist in her? Is it because she is in new surroundings? Anything I can do besides breaking her jaw to stop the biting? I know the guy that I got her from and she wasn't mean before. But she was not the dominant one in the bunch.
