A few weeks ago, a friend who I shall not name, called me and said, “Is it true that if a buck is kept with a goat that is giving milk, his buck odor taints the milk with his scent?”
Me: “Yes, I’ve heard that can happen.”
My friend: “WHY did you never tell me this?!”
Me: “I didn’t know it was that fascinating!”
My friend: “Of course it’s fascinating!” And then he had another question: “What if a nursing mother, human, is around a buck? Will it taint her milk with a buck scent?”
Ummmmm….. I had to admit that I didn’t know the answer to this question. Nor did I ponder it for long as a fascinating one (or pertinent to my life). A few weeks later, he called me again, said he needed to ask me a question from my expert knowledge.
Me: “I’m not an expert on anything.”
My friend: “Of course you are!”
Me: “You’re not still thinking about whether or not buck scent taints human mother’s milk, are you?”
My friend: “Of course I am!”
Dear readers, please help my friend. If any among you has had experience, as a nursing mother, around a buck, did it taint your milk?
THIS QUESTION MUST BE RESOLVED.
