Planning Spring Break Babies

4 Oct

It’s that time of year when I am making lists of who gets retired and who gets to have kids and which buck gets which girls.  Exciting times!

Bonnie

As things stand right now, I’m going to have girls with Fionn, Xerxes, and Zeus for making March babies.  (Pluto and Anubis are too young yet.)

Xerxes and Astra

Fionn is getting: Cinnamon, Maisie, Clover, Mary, Reva, Joani, Wanda, Victoria, Haley, Vinnie, Bambi, Blaze, and Bonnie.  They will have the first part of the barn, east barnyard, and the front pasture.

Fionn

Of course, that all depends on whether or not I can actually catch Bambi and Vinnie.  That is not an easy task.

Bambi

Xerxes gets:  Ava, Cutie, Zinnia, Gidget, Daisy, Hilda, and Astra.  I’m putting them in the buck room and that small side pen.

Hilda

Zeus gets:  Annie, Margarita, Sidney, LilyAnn, and Caroline.  They will go up north.

Margarita

Harley and the little bucks will get stuck in the Love Shack for the short time we are breeding.  Hopefully, Harley will get to just be let out with the rest of the herd when I put them all back where they belong.

Anubis and Harley (Antigone behind)

Of course, I’ll still have a large group of retired and too young that will be a fourth group of goats.

Maggie

They’ll be on the west side of the barnyard and the Back Forty.

Aphrodite

Nothing like musical goats!  Someday, I need to draw a map so you can actually see where I’m talking about when I make all these changes.
