I've noticed this with my five goats, and just wondered if it was usual... We have Sugar the herd queen, second in command is Badger the buck. Taffy the other mature doe is rock bottom. Her two daughters, now two years old, fall somewhere in the middle. But what I have noticed is that Sugar and Badger are usually a little herd to themselves and Taffy and her girls form another little herd, usually close by but not part of the other "clique". For those of you with lots of goats (I know some of you have upwards of 50)- is this common? Do you end up with dozens of little herds in the one big herd? And is there always only one herd queen when the numbers get up there?
