The Great Divide

5 Mar

I divided my goats that are going to have kids on spring break from the rest of the herd.  The ones not having kids over spring break are on the west side of the barnyard.

The ones due for spring break are in the east side of the barnyard, and have access to the greenhouse and one section of the barn.

I do have three not bred girls that didn’t get moved over.  I am still feeding Dolly a bit of extra feed, and I like to keep a close eye on her.


The morning I moved them, I saw about 15 goats in the greenhouse, so I know it is big enough to hold that many goats.  The problem is trying to get all the personalities to get along.  That’s the hard part.


I swear goats are more like people than any other animal I’ve ever seen.  That is not intended as a compliment.  Maisie is my big pushy girl, so I put her in the buck room with Aurora.  She wasn’t too happy about that, but I don’t really care at this point.  I just need everyone to be able to go inside and stay warm.  Unfortunately, you always have one goat that is most dominant that likes to let everyone else know it.


We’re trying to get along.
