Someone who was from up North, I think Vermont or something, posted here awhile ago about their buck going into rut, and I was saying it matters how close to the equator the goat is.

My buck started in rutting behavior yesterday, here in the near-Deep South. I'm going to try to find that thread, to see how many days' difference there was from North to South, if I have the time later today.

I had to reinforce with panels the barnyard fence that is common with the pasture, he was ramming it so hard to get to the gals. NO SIR! I don't want any December-February kids, and the younger goats are too young to be bred yet.

My Nigerian buck started showing signs of rut about two weeks ago. Phewwwww. It's amazing a forty pound buck could put off a stink that powerful. (He's in with an alpine wether who is around 225 lbs -- I've been dying laughing all week watching him try to flirt with the wether, who is completely ignoring him, and who is tall enough that 'Junior' can walk under his belly.)
