Going and Staying

6 Jul

It’s time to say good-bye to the March babies that are not staying on the farm.  It’s time.  They are becoming a pain.


He doesn’t even say “thank you;” just “what took you so long to get here.”  I am ready to throw him in with the bucks so I at least don’t have to walk so far to get him out.

They are big.

I never like saying good-bye, but I have to say it is a relief this time with all the copper issues.  The Maisie’s boys (above) and Giselle (below) all have neurological issues, so it will be good to quit worrying about whether or not they’ll make it to sale.


Sadly, I had a forever farm lined up for Giselle, but that isn’t going to happen now.  In good news, though, it means that Hera will be taking her place (and Hera is a sweetie).


Aphrodite will go to the same farm.  Since they are wanted for milking does, the girls will stay here until they have babies next year, so you’ll get to keep seeing them for a while.


I’m also keeping Cinnamon’s girl, Athena, who is just gorgeous!

Zeus (who is Hera’s twin brother) will stay to replace his dad, Sam.


Then I might as well give in and just accept that Antigone will be staying.  Even though she’s kind of a brat, I adore her.


Is it just me or does it look like someone did a really bad job of photoshopping horns out–oops, forgot one!
