Hmm, that's interesting that other farmers are experiencing the same thing with their goats. I'm not particularly happy about the idea of him being in rut for months, but I sure don't want him to "lose that lovin' feeling" before it's time.
I'm in east TX. We had a few weeks of 100 degree weather, but the last couple of weeks has been low 90's during the day. It's a nice break for us in July when it's usually broiling. Maybe Billy's body thinks since it's cooled off a bit, it's almost fall.
He has a donkey companion, Henry, and I don't know how Henry puts up with all of his grunting, tongue flapping, and climbing all over him...not to mention the smell. Every day when I go to feed him, he manages to "sneeze" on me which makes me smell like goat for the rest of the day. yuk.
