STILL not Alice
Bucks - small or large - will find a way. So will the does.Yea one of them kidded in May and the entire time I wasnt 100% sure she was pregnant until she was definitely in labor because the belly kept going from being obvious to not being there at all.
Im going to have to just find out when it happens shes not going to let me handle her without a fight right now. I already twisted my knee bending down wrong (the Marine Corps gave me the gift of the knees of an 80 year old) to try and get a look at her when she forgot I was standing near her so im in no shape to wrestle with her 130lb butt.
If she doesnt kid within 2 weeks that would mean my buckling did the job but he was only knee high to her til a month ago and Im trying to figure out the physics of how that would have worked, especially since she hates the little punk and I havent once seen her in heat over the past 4 and a half months.
I've seen videos of small bucks sneaking up on does to breed them. Too funny, but can't find them now.
We also had the experience of watching one of our hair sheep ewes (notorious for being sneaky, private breeders) actually lie down so the young ram of her choice could breed her. She was a very large girl, not fat, just tall and BIG. Sold her to a friend, who later called to report that the ewe threw triplets.
