Remember a few years back when Dep tore up a buck's ear? It was during breeding season & all Dep was doing was protecting his girls.
So we moved buck to different pen where Dep could not see, much less have access.
When we got a new buck we put him into that pen and any does to be bred so I wouldn't have torn buck ear.
Well, Bolt is too big to band & still in with the girls.
Some of them have been covered by Darlin but I noticed a couple of the yrlgs in heat & Im pretty sure little Bolt took care of business.
All this time there has been no aggression on Dep's part, I truly believe since Bolt is HIS "baby" he belongs & can do what he wants.
Auto & Darlin were from outside farms.

it could make a difference for sure.  Is he still aggressive with the other two boys?

Pam, Darlin is still on the opposite side where Dep cant see.
It has made me rethink all this....someday get a couple FB does to produce some nice bucklings of our own. All does are either purebred or %.

well it sounds like a good plan.  But what will you do with the Does that your potential buck will be related to?

Unless really outstanding they will probably go for meat. Im not sure how ABGA will handle it; new rules state that any kids born next yr to have sire's DNA on file. Darlin will have his filed.
Since Bolt can not there's no way around it. The kids might be reg at 50%. But with no DNA on him I don't know.
He is a 75%  & there's plenty of genetics to not have to deal with weird off spring, though he is a cousin/half bro.
