Help during breeding time

Since it is spring, and breeding time is soon coming up, I thought I would share some info that helped me when I had animals that had not bred before. You just want to make sure that they know "what to do". In that case, I always get two breeding pens set up, one for the experienced and one for the inexperienced. I got the two experienced ones together, and had the newbies in the pen next door where they could see what was going on. It worked like clockwork, as the newbie male watched and learned, as did the newbie female. When it was time for the newbies, they got to work right away. Got both sides bred within fifteen minutes, then walked the two happy boys together back to their pasture where they strutted their stuff and totally ignored the other boys who came around to sniff them.
