Weaning and Leaving

10 Aug

Dolly is not the only girl who is struggling with anemia. A lot of my older girls that had babies in June are struggling.

Dolly (Yes, she busted out again, and I don’t even know how this time.)

I had to wean some more kids.  They are doing well.

Jimmy P (He’s fine. I don’t know why he’s lying like that.)

Freya (on top of the Quonset hut)

Cookie got shut in because her eyes were pure white.  I really wanted to put her in the Love Shack with Dolly so they could share and have an outdoor space, but Dolly wasn’t playing nice.  They drive me crazy with their crankiness.

Cookie who got let back out because the greenhouse is too dark for long-term shut in.

Haley and Victoria were pale, but not white, so they got to stay with the herd.

Haley

That means Osiris and Pandora are the only two June kids left with their moms in the herd.

Pandora

I do have a couple of Harley’s kids that are looking a little pale, so I think I’m just going to sell all the June babies as soon as I can.  Then I’ll see if I can add Zinnia and Sidney (maybe) to my girls getting milked.

Zinnia

Of course, I’m keeping Pluto (and maybe Anubis) around to help  make the perfect kid.

I’m also leaving Antigone up there for now.

Then I think I’ll add Athena up north to keep Antigone company because she and I are having battles over who gets Cinnamon’s milk.

Athena

She usually wins that battle.  It will be a relief not to have the kids to worry about.  Then I can just focus on the moms.

    Guess you will have to get the ladies all back in shape before considering babies for 2019.

      Dolly, Harley, and Cookie are already planned to retire. Victoria and Haley should keep improving quickly as they no longer have to take care of kids.

    I’m sorry you’ve had so many problems caused by the copper deficiency! I think you are on the right track now, to get things back to where they belong!

      As long as it has gone untreated, it will take a while for them to get back to healthy. We should be getting better though.
