Goats/goats and sheep


maggie may, a 2 yo angora goat is being stalked by a 5 yo churro weathered sheep. he is obsessed by her, gets between anything near her.  he was formerly a shy guy but has become aggressive around her.  any advise or ideas?

Is there anyway you can separate them? He needs to be isolated. If you have the time, you can stalk him with a spray bottle and spray him as negative reinforcement when he acts in appropriately. That may help. He is in lve. That's pretty hard to fight. I wonder whether he has an extra testicle. Good luck.
