While the dominant stud, Yukon, foraged on the other side of Goldie and Gemini, Mama made her way past three year old North Star and the two younger ones, towards Yukon. North Star stopped foraging at this time and kept his eyes on Mama.
This was when Yukon stopped foraging, approached Mama, then bred her. Mama has numerous, fresh mounting wounds on her back.
***My assumption is Smokin’ Joe and Fairbanks were smelling Mama. The band had probably walked through the area we observed the Bachelors were.
