Gretel our bottle fed Nubian did not kid this year and has not bonded with the sheep, donkey or cows so she is lonely. Today I brought home a purebred Boer wether to keep her company. Charlie. Charlie is not a barn pet and will leave the farm in the fall, just in time for Gretel to visit the buck before winter. Gretel is a barn pet and will remain on the farm, hopefully kidding once a year and keeping the fence edges broused.
