Who’s Expecting?

29 Dec

I really wish I could answer that question.  I put about twenty-four goats in with the bucks last fall to make spring break kids.  It’s  now that time when I’ll be putting the boys and girls together to have June babies.  I only want to put the ones that didn’t get bred before in with the bucks because that’s the easiest for me with doing chores.  I don’t know know who all is and isn’t bred though.

Clover

Clover

I know Clover isn’t bred.  I’ve seen her come back into heat.

Maggie

Maggie

I have no idea on Maggie.  She and Penny and Helen were the three I had no idea when they were due last summer, and I’m afraid I have no idea if any of the three are bred for spring break or if I should be putting them back in with the boys.

Star and Vixen

Star and Vixen

I still have Star and four other kids from last year to sell.  I’m not positive, but I think Vixen might be due over spring break.  At least I have a tentative date written down for her.

Sallie

Sallie

I haven’t seen Sallie in heat all fall, but she’s looking a bit full.  I think she might be expecting over spring break, but it’s just a guess.

Coffee

Coffee

I do know Coffee isn’t bred.  Marley, Myson and Bud have all quite regularly fallen in love with her.  I’m still milking her, but that will end when I put her in with Fionn to be bred for June.

Blaze

Blaze

I’m pretty confident Blaze is bred.  I’m guessing she might have triplets again this year.  I think her twin, Bonnie, will also have spring break kids.

Maisie

Maisie

I might just toss a coin for Maisie.  I have no clue if she’s bred for March or not.

Mary and Kizzy

Mary and Kizzy

I haven’t seen Mary in heat since she was with Fionn, so I think she’s expecting.  Thankfully, I’ve seen Kizzy come into heat quite regularly.  I really don’t want her getting bred through the fence again this year.  I think retirement is a much better plan for her.

Cinnamon

Cinnamon

Cinnamon is the other girl I’m milking that I’m certain is not bred.  She’ll get put in with Fionn too.  I think my third milking doe, Haley, might be bred, so I quit milking her.  I won’t guarantee it though.

Guess I’ll be doing a lot of guessing!  We’ll find out how accurate I was come March!
