A Pregnant Pistol

4 Jan

The Good.  So I’ve decided I think Pistol is pregnant.  Anyhow she’s awfully round, looks like she’s springing, and feels like she’s making an udder.  I also have not seen her come into heat since she was isolated with her back injury.  I’m not sure it’s good for her to be pregnant, but it is good that she is still walking and acting quite well.  You’d never guess she had a back injury.  I’m going to go with it being good.



The Random.  It does make it a challenge.  I went back to work after winter break today, and we don’t really have another day off until spring break kids.  I can narrow Pistol’s due date down to the last couple of weeks in February.  That’s cold.  That’s a challenge.  I’m glad the buck pen is done and insulated.  I’m pretty sure she and Muffin will get moved into there by mid-February.  Then, I need to get my family convinced to stop and check on her every couple of hours.  Sadly, that leaves me with the all night shift.

The Fun.  That would be Fionn’s area.  Pretty sure this means three of the last four years he’s bred someone through the fence.  At least I assume that’s what happened right before her injury because she has not been in with a buck.  That boy.  I really need a fence without holes.



Oh.  While I’m pretty sure she’s pregnant.  I might be wrong, but I don’t think so.  Goats are enough to drive you insane.

I do hope you’ll consider joining me for Friday’s Hunt this week.  The items are in the top of my sidebar, and the linky will open at 7pm central time on Friday.

Sharing with The Good. The Random. The Fun.

    Of course Fionn is smiling about it all in the picture, while hiding his eyes!

      He is quite pleased. He expects overtime pay since he was working when not asked.

    How cool she is pregnant. Hope it goes well!
    We have a week off in February, but then it’s a long stretch to the last week in April!

    oh, dear. hope her back can take it.

      She’s doing really well so far. I just hope she continues to. I will keep her away from the rest of the herd and keep her in as low-stress situation as possible. I was not happy to figure this out.

    Hope her back holds up if she is pregnant. I am nearly home now, waiting at Heathrow for my flight this afternoon but thanks for leaving me all the comments when I was away.

      My pleasure Margaret. It’s been nice to have time to get around and visit people again. I am a bit concerned, but she’s doing quite well so far.

      I was really planning on giving her the year off to recover. Darn Fionn. Darn Pistol. Darn goats. LOL

      She’s doing quite well. I will make sure she had proper accommodations.

    I hope she will be ok. Fionn is certainly a determined buck!

    • Teresa January 5, 2016 at 8:02 pm #

      He really is. She is doing well so far.

    I’m very concerned about Pistol, as you are, and everyone else too. I’m sure there will be lots of prayers being said for that girl! As you said, darn, darn, darn! They can surely be a pain sometimes, but whatever would you do without them! She looks great and I really hope that continues.

    • Teresa January 6, 2016 at 6:53 am #

      She’s doing well, but I will certainly keep a very close eye on her.
