Twenty-two days after putting Fionn and the girls together, I figured everyone had to have come into heat and been bred (they have a three week heat cycle). I hadn’t seen him with three of the girls, and I hadn’t seen Sam with Vixen, but that’s not unusual when we breed this time of year. It’s cold, the days are short, and I’m at work. I just hope everyone has been bred, and I’ll watch to see if they come back in heat.
I was wrong! Sunday, Bambi and Fionn were in love.
I hope everyone else has been bred and she is my last one to kid in the summer.
In related news, Pistol is definitely bred. My highly unreliable memory thinks she is due around February 23rd. That’s not very far away. I’ve added my 2016 buck/doe count to the sidebar in preparation.
I do hope you’ll consider coming back to join me for Friday’s Hunt. The items for this week are at the top of my sidebar.
