How Sweet it Is

8 Feb

So I was wrong. (Don’t worry, I’m used to that.)  Bambi was not my last girl to come into heat.  This morning I thought I saw Fionn chasing Bonnie around, but she was hiding from him in the quonset hut.



When I went outside, Reva and Litha were obviously in heat.  Just ask my wethers.  I put them in with Fionn.

That made me wonder if Bonnie was in heat or Fionn was just reacting to the hormones in the air.

Well, Reva was being mean to Bonnie, so I put her in with Sam.  Sam instantly fell in love, so Bonnie was also in heat.  I don’t know who’s kids she’s going to have now (or both).

Then I decided I better try to figure out if I missed anyone else. There were a lot of jumpy girls with me feeling their udders to see if they were starting to get one.

It turns out I believe Cinnamon and Mary did not get bred either.  I managed to catch Cinnamon and put her with Fionn.

The next day I caught Mary and put her up there too.

She’s not easy to lead.

I hope you’ll come back and join me for Friday’s Hunt.  The items for this week are at the top of my sidebar.

This week’s Song-ography song is How Sweet it Is by James Taylor.  I’m also sharing with The Good. The Random. The Fun..

    Oh you are going to be very very busy at kidding time!

    • Teresa February 9, 2016 at 6:33 am #

      Sadly, they are really spread out, so it will be a long slow kidding. I much prefer to have the clustered together (a sleepless week and then we’re done).

      I just didn’t see them coming back into heat, or I would have put them with him again sooner. Crazy weather is to blame.

    Those kids do keep you hopping!

    • Teresa February 9, 2016 at 6:34 am #

      That’s for sure!

    I like seeing the names of your goats…and every time I see one with the name van de Yell attached, I just have to laugh, because it reminds me of how Jenna’s goats used to yell, and yell and yell some more if they wanted something. Anything. Food, attention, etc.

      Oops…that was me. Somehow I got signed out! 🙂

        After so many years, I can usually tell who it is even when it’s an anonymous comment. LOL

      Boeris was really vocal when he came to the farm, so he earned that last name. LOL

      It certainly is!

    You are doing great! If it weren’t for Mama Teresa there wouldn’t be any baby goats or kids running around at Eden Hills. Keep it up.
    p.s. We were gone last week on a Caribbean cruise but my Friday Hunt auto posted at midnight anyway. Thursday I am scheduled for St. Luke’s, Houston, for a cardio procedure as my AAA stent graft has sprung as leak and needs to be repaired/sealed. They may keep me overnight but I will bring a laptop and iPad. And Mrs. Jim

    • Teresa February 9, 2016 at 11:29 am #

      Take care of yourself! I do hope things go well with the procedure.

    Oh, I just love reading about all these “tails”…my BFF in VA had goats (although they didn’t breed them) that they rescued. One was the “watch dog” and greeted anyone who came up the driveway!!…:)JP

    • Teresa February 9, 2016 at 2:57 pm #

      Goats are very good greeters. LOL
