An old, old thread but I used a homemade "olor" for a goat buck based on what people use in Africa to prevent goat kids in the dry season. I just attached a piece of tarp to a dog harness with some zip ties. He didn't get anyone bred when wearing it but he was young and not the brightest buck ever so I can't guarantee it would work for everyone. If it's not the end of the world if some ewes get bred accidentally it might be worth a try.

I know this post was in 2015 but was wondering if u got to test the harness on the buck after he knew how to breed? I hate putting my buck up in the barn to keep them seperated. Right now its my only option. I dont have a buck pen yet. Thanks.

I haven't used it on any senior bucks and frankly the angoras aren't particularly virile or smart so I'm not sure it would work on goats or sheep with more brains. People in Africa have good success with it though and there's a place that sells them now that claims good success.
