Goatucation: Can You be Buddies with Your Buck, Part II

Last week I showed you that the publicist and Luke get along very well. 

 
This led to a number of questions that I thought I would answer for you today. But first I am going to post a photo of my little studmuffin because it makes me happy to do so.



He is a cutie, isn't he? Even when he is expressing his opinion of Matthew the goat.

Daisy asked if some buck are a little bit mean - yes some buck surely are. Michael the goat was a little bit mean to the publicist and that is why he no longer on the Farm. He charged at her and flipped her so that she landed flat on her stomach. Then he stomped on her. This was not nice at all.

Carolyn asked if the publicist had to burn her sweater due to buck smell - no mostly because Luke isn't in rut right now. He doesn't stink so much. Of course I love his smell but I know you humans can find it offensive.

jaz wanted to know what makes the "buck smell." Well I will try and be delicate here. When bucks want to attract us does they well, urinate on themselves. All over their legs and faces. After doing this several times a day for weeks at a time....do I need say more?

So I hope this helps answer you questions about the love of my life. He is a very good buck and very nice to the publicist. Even with his big horns he has never tried to but her or hurt her.


Happy President's Day to all of my human friends in the USA.

  2. Luke looks tiny in that picture with you? Is he smaller than Michael was? Glad kitties don't pee all over themselves...

    Thomasina has discovered how much fun beads are she steals them out of my bead boxes and plays with it until she looses it then goes and gets another one... Needles to say I know have beads all over the house!

  3. Goodness, I did not realize the source of the stench. I thought it was something they produced like oils but NO!! It's worse...

  6. I'm feeling a bit queasy right now ... I had no idea that urine was the cause of the stench.

  8. How do they pee on their faces? Do other bucks help them out? I'm confused.

  9. We're with Jen - it's a little hard to figure out how he does that and it's certainly something we didn't know bucks do. Thanks for goatucating us!

  10. We had a male hamster that would pee on himself! He would pee in his wheel and then run in it so he was coated!! Goofy thing. I kind of figured it was a "guy" thing.

  11. Our bucks think they are sexy beasts, especially when they've doused themselves with their "cologne!"

  12. Jen: they especially like to pee on their beards, and it's fairly easy for them to reach those spots...

  13. Maybe that's why my boys smelled so bad when they were little. I'm just saying.....

  14. And I thought the cat mating rituals were unpleasant! Definitely NOT into eau de goat pee. All this makes me glad I'm spayed.

  15. He he he. Good thing the sweater survived. Once I had to drive home from my friend's farm with the windows down after her goat made 'friends' with me.
