Where Will They All Go?

26 Feb

I am going a bit nuts trying to figure out where to put twenty goats to kid all at once over spring break.  If it were supposed to be a beautiful normal spring, it wouldn’t be a problem.  They could kid outside.  That’s not the case though.  It looks like it’s going to be cold.

So I’m trying to figure out who to put with whom.  I think I can have Bonnie, Blaze and Gidget together without any problems.




I’m not so sure I can add Bonne and Blaze’s half-sister Mary to the mix though. She sometimes gets along, and sometimes she doesn’t.


Then there’s Margarita.  She’s little, and I’m pretty sure she will have to be by herself.


Sidney, Cutie, and Astra are in the same situation. And I can’t even put two of them together because they would suddenly get pushy with the other one.


I’m pretty sure Wanda and Ava, mother and daughter, will be okay together.


I’m not sure that will work with Annie and Caroline though.


Sometimes, moms don’t won’t their last baby with them trying to still act like their baby when they have new kids coming.

Victoria and Clover are three-quarters sisters and get along, but I’m not sure they can be together for kidding.


Then there’s the handful of pushy ones that I’m sure have to be by themselves: Joani, Hilda, Haley, Cinnamon, Reva, and Maisie.


Oh my.  I need another building the size of my garage.
