Jacob lives with Dottie & Milton Cross on their farm. Dottie has been raising Nubians for over 30 yrs. and is considered the Guru when it comes to taking care of Nubians. She & Milton were so warm, gracious and hospitable. I had such a great time and time did get away from us. We were there for 2 hrs. talking about goats and family. In my opinion that’s a great way to spend my time.
Dottie had me bring a washcloth which she rubbed all over Jacob who right now is quite stinky. Male goats in rutt are in desperate need of a good deodorant, but the ladies love that smell. We put the stinky cloth in a jar with a good fitting lid. I brought it home and when I think my girls are in heat I am to take the stinky cloth and dangle it in front of them. If they strongly react to the cloth as if it is an aphrodisiac then I am to quickly pile one or both in the SUV and quickly drive to Dottie’s farm. Once there, Jacob will meet Annie and/or Sophia and hopefully consummate the union. This should take about 15 mins. and hopefully 5 months later Ed & I will become the proud grandgoatparents of baby kids.
