Why Do Billy Goat Smell So Bad?
Billy goats — or bucks are intact male goats. Bucks stink with a peculiar odor that can be quite offensive. Neither does female goats nor wethers males exhibit such odors.
Bucks stink with a strong musky odor, which comes from both their scent glands, located near their horns, and their urine, which they spray on their face, beards, front legs and chest.
Why do they exhibit such odors? As it turns out, this odor makes bucks more attractive to females and help them with mating.
They usually spray themselves during rut — that is, the time when the does are in estrus. Rut usually occurs in late summer through fall, and it is the time when the buck is most smelly.
