Two young female ibexes, one of them perhaps pregnant, have joined our old herd of ibexes – four males and a single female that no longer comes into heat. The four males welcomed the new females with a lot of excitement, and two of them began horn-fighting, testing the established hierarchy. There is no doubt that the two young ibexes have added life to our sleepy herd.
