Change was in the air and the goats could sense it. Becca Boo knew something was up.
Addison was in a foul mood as she was in heat and Romea just wasn’t up to taking care of the task at hand.
Romeo is a handsome fellow and should have been old enough for his responsibilities, yet the lack of “buck stink” was a clear indication that he wasn’t up to the challenge of being a breeding buck this year.
So Romeo had to go and he was replaced by Maverick. The difference was immediate as Addison found him instantly alluring. One sniff and she was his plaything.
I have to admit that I think Maverick is a handsome fellow and he fits right in size wise with all the others. He most definitely has a strong “buck” smell. In fact I was sick to my stomach from sampling his distinct aroma the first morning after his arrival. The stench tends to burn into ones nostrils and stay there.
Yet it seems the girls don’t mind and they accepted him into the herd immediately. Even Chip doesn’t seem to mind his presence. I’m looking forward to some nice looking kids being born this Spring!
