This is my first year with breeding goats. I have a Nubian doe that is in heat, I think. She was visiting with the buck through the fence and wailing loudly. It was almost dark outside so this was unusual for my goats. I went to see what the fuss was about and they were both reacting to each other. So, I put them in together because I want to breed this cycle. Well, I have never seen goats mating nor do I know what to expect. How long does it take? He has mounted her several times and she isn't fighting him. She stands for him, however, is not raising her tail so it looks as though he isn't actually getting anywhere. I feel stupid asking such detailed questions about a goat's mating habits but I really have no clue. Aside from dogs, I haven't raised any other kind of animal. If anyone has any info or advice on how to watch for a successful mating occurence, please let me know. I haven't been able to find any info on it anywhere. Thanks so much!!
