    Poor Squeaker is just a tad too short for Charity. Charity is in heat and in love. They're both trying so hard. Any ideas?

    Give him something to stand on, even if it's just a couple of planks. Hold the doe with her back end just in front of the "ramp" - he'll get the job done. :)

    That's what I had to do for my little Saanen buckling, and he was most appreciative. :p

    Second that, lots of people do that w/ Pygmys, they all want the smaller buck for the females. Just put a little stand in and the doe will come right up, almost with a laughing sigh.
