We had some dogs come round a time or two so I been closing our little herd up in the shed at night. Two horned young does go in one stall, a horned wether in another, with the two big does loose in the rest. The big does used to have horns but little pieces remain cause the breeder was afraid of burning them too much. One of these does is butting the stall where the little does are so much that her horn buds are getting raw and bleeding. During the day they are all together and there doesn't seem to be any more pushing and shoving than considered normal. I'm kinda leery about putting them all together at night in a small space like the shed. Everyone's preggie and I don't want them hurting each other. The "butt-er" is due in March and is farthest along but I don't think this has anything to do with it cause she's been doing it all along. Anyone have any ideas as to why she's doing this? And a solution? Thanks
