    Shut him away tonight somewhere he can't get out and/ or injure himself, but where he can smell her. In 3 or 4 hours try them again, if she is truly ready he will not be put off when you touch him. Get her progesterone tested tomorrow if nothing happens.

    Make sure he cannot get to her or hurt himself in the process, but he needs to be able to smell her.

    Ask for the progesterone test to go to a lab called Idexx, these are the best for getting back to you on the day she should be mated. You get the resuts the following day.

    I'm guessing from your posts, they are both maidens and you yourself are inexperienced, so I would forget using your boy and find and experienced stud.
