You Stink So Good
For those that don't know these are both male goats, called bucks. They do have a distinctive musky odor when they are in rut, (I don't find it offensive, it is just a farm smell to me. Some bucks have a stronger bucky smell than others.) however the female goat (known as a "doe") does not smell at all any time of the year, well not unless she has been in a pasture with a smelly buck that has been rubbing all over her! ;-) They are very clean and in fact our dogs have more of an odor than the female goats do. Our hands do not smell and are not dirty after petting the does.
Our Boer bucks do not have too strong of an odor as far as bucks go when they are in rut, now we did own a Pygmy cross buck years ago that did! That boy would make your eyes water and peel paint straight off the barn wall with his bucky aroma, or buck funk as I like to call it... but the does went crazy over him! It is the best, most attractive cologne in the world to them.
