With the end of the summer comes the beginning of "rut" season for the goats.
Rut is the male equivalent of being "in heat".
It is during this time that air quality around the farm
starts to take on a musky quality....
due mostly to the buck's urinating on their beards and front legs
(we call this cologne application!)
Here is a video of our dear Fred...doing what is referred to as "blubbering".
He has already applied a generous amount of cologne,
and is ready to impress the ladies.
Sadly, for T. Donald's sake, the ladies are far away.
And so Fred turns his affections towards T. Donald!
Make sure your audio is on,
and if you are reading this on Facebook, you will need to view the video
directly from my blog.
These boys spend most of their days engaged in this behavior...
sometimes not even taking a break for meals.
Oh, the poor girls....
it won't be long until dating season begins!
