    Georgia Girl,

    At a month old I wouldn't worry too much, but in a couple of months you either need to separate him from your does, castrate him, sell him, or use one of those aprons. I am not too familiar with the aprons, but saw a YouTube video showing one in use. Goats are very fertile critters so if you use the apron make sure it is as tight as it can comfortably be on your buck and check daily that the apron is not hung up on anything.
