Moving Day

6 Jan

Today is the day I had to move everyone around to make June babies.  It was a bit more challenging this year.

Zeus, Xerxes and Fionn

I have two extra little bucks.

Anubis and Pluto

I have old ladies that are getting extra care.

I had to figure out what to do so that everyone was with a buck or away from a buck.  I also wanted to move Tony Llama into the buck room. It’s a lot better shelter and I want to make sure he has extra feed because he’s still thin, and he’ll have the front pasture which has more for him to eat.  It’s driving me crazy, and he’s the only critter on the farm that I’m truly worried about.

Tony

Moving llamas was the first order of business.  I thought Buster might be difficult, but he was really good for me.

Buster

He is back with the main herd and Maybeline and Odie.  I figure those girls will be able to put him in his place if he starts acting like a stud with them.

Odie

That means Tony is with Xerxes and his girls.  He only has Cookie and Zinnia with him.

I thought about retiring Cookie, but she is looking good, and she’s had a couple rounds of copper, so I decided we’d let her have kids for one more year.

Xerxes might already be done with his work for June babies.

Xerxes and Zinnia

We’ll see if they settle.

I  hope so!

    I really hope all works out well for the June babies and that they are perfectly beautiful!

      I have no doubts that they will be beautiful. I just hope the copper is sufficient and they are healthy.
