Those Old Ladies

9 Jan

Since I already had Harley, Pistol, and Lily, along with the two little girls (Cupid and Antigone) shut in the greenhouse together,

I thought it might be easier just to put the other old ladies with them and let them have the barnyard and north paddock.

I know that’s confusing, but I only have six more goats that I had to move away from bucks.  Litha is not having more babies.

There’s her twin sister, Stormy.

Dolly is retiring after ten years of having kids.

Maggie doesn’t do well with heat, so she’s staying retired.  Margarita is already bred, and I did let her come over here to be with her maa.

Betty Lou is second oldest, and she really doesn’t need any kids.

Coral has never had babies after losing her first one and having a C-section, so she’s not about to start.

I am a bit worried about Harley getting hit, but so far everyone is behaving.

Proving she can still get on the picnic table

I am also a little worried that some old lady will come into heat and try to jump the fence from the compost pile.

I could really see someone doing that.

    perhaps if the compost was not as close to the fence, they would not jump over i
