What a difference willing does make

Post Number:#1  Unread postby GBov » Fri Mar 29, 2019 12:44 pm


Now that the girls are starting to come back into breeding condition and the bucks actually know one end of a doe from the other, breeding is so much easier.

I could even put one of my young bucks with my formerly very aggressive doe and she was like a lamb with him. Her kits are 2 weeks old right now so she was ready and willing.

He was a bit surprised, he has only met does smaller than himself so far but he did the job just fine.

Booted tricolor to a blue otter is not a usual cross but two and four generations back she has tri in her pedigree so this should be a nice test, both of her and of him.

I only kept her because of her size and coat as otters are not my favorite but I am so glad I did, she has the only viable litter so far.

And when I had to do a quick recapture of Vortex (I thought I needed to fix that door :roll: ) I traded her space with Monty so she is in a cage of her own and River Song is in with him.....

She was willing and he was able, three times in under a min.

Energizer bunnies anyone? :lol:
