I was really enjoying the spring weather, but winter made a return. Duke and Duchess have spent their entire life sleeping in the dog house. They love it!
Our weather turned cold, and the green house door kept blowing shut, so Blaze had to join them in the dog house.
Don’t worry, I put them in the green house and shut the door so they were warmer because we had a winter storm go through that left a half inch of rain, horrible winds, and then freezing cold with a bit of snow.
Today is still horrible cold and damp and windy. At least the weather has improved a little. Duke and Duchess are back out in the dog house while Blaze browses in the yard.
It’s not good kidding weather. Clover’s boy got chilled, so he’s had a bottle and is snuggled in a blanket on the couch.
I will be moving them to a warmer place. I’m also going to shut Dolly in the nice insulated room in case she decides to kid tonight.
I also had to go out to pasture in this cold to check my Mary since I just finally decided she was bred last week.
There she is browsing and looking quite boring. She is so tired of me feeling her udder to decide whether or not she’s pregnant that I can’t get near her now. I don’t know how I can get her over here to the kidding pens.
I also checked Victoria. She is the one that is driving me crazy because she was with the buck and she doesn’t look pregnant, and I don’t think she’s making an udder, but it’s been a weird year.
Before you tell me there’s no way she’s pregnant looking that svelte, here’s Stormy.
About eight hours later, she gave me a twin buck and doe (in the middle of the night and cold).
I have two or three to go, and I will be quite relieved when we are back to spring weather and all the kids are safely on the ground!
If you want to join me for Friday’s Hunt, the items are at the top of my side bar. I might have found an M by then. Hopefully…
