Who’s Due

28 May

I can’t believe we’re almost to June.  You know what that means–June babies.  So who’s due?

After I thought the copper was going to fix everything, I decided to let some of my girls who didn’t settle last year try it again.  Here’s who’s due from oldest to youngest.  At ten years old, Penny is my oldest one to have kids this year.  She is due June 8th.

Bambi and Vinnie are also both in that category of not having kids last year but settling this year.  They are both nine this summer. Vinne is due between June 9th and 15th.  She is one I’m really concerned about with the copper since she’s lost so much hair and looks horrible.

Vinnie

Bambi is due between June 16th and 22nd.  Bambi actually looks like she’s still in pretty good shape.

The next one is Cookie.  She’s the last of my “old” girls who are bred.  She is going to be eight next month. There’s no question about her being bred when you look at her.  She’s also one of the first ones due. June 5th is her due date.  She was in heat when I put her in with the buck (I didn’t know it when I put her over there), and with our many snow makeup days, she is due before I’m done working for the summer.

Bambi’s doe Daisy is my next one. I still consider her young at three years old.  She is due between June 16th and 22nd.  It was such cold miserable weather when they were with the bucks, I didn’t see when many of the girls were bred.  I just am using dates from when I last saw them in heat and extrapolating when they are most likely due.

Zinnia and LilyAnn are both two years old.  Zinnia is expecting her second kid on June 5th.  Like Cookie, I didn’t know she was in heat when I put them with the bucks.

LilyAnn is expecting her first baby this year.  She’s due between June 16th and 22nd.

LilyAnn

Aphrodite is my yearling. She is due sometime between June 23rd and 30th.

Hera is another yearling and the last one I saw bred, which would make her due June 28th, but I’m not sure she settled.

Hera

She doesn’t seem to be making an udder, so I think she’s open.  I have to say, I will be relieved when we are done with kidding this year.
