Jailed and Exiled

11 Aug

Hormones really have kicked in.  It seems like the calendar change to August was like flipping a switch for the girls to come into heat.  Thursday night really saw a lot of girls flicking their tails and hanging out by the bucks.

Cupid and Xerxes

Cinnamon was all loopy and jumping the other girls.

Cinnamon and Hera

Thursday evening, I had to catch Doc because he was relentlessly chasing Caroline around the barnyard.

Friday morning, Zinnia was being chased through the barnyard by about five of the March bucks.

Zinnia and Joy

That was bad enough, but then they went after Joy.

I caught them and shut them in prison until I could tag and sell them on Saturday.

“We’re innocent!”

I have threatened Harley if she gets bred through the fence.  It would just kill her with her back injury.

So she left Xerxes and went to tortured the March bucks.

“How you doin’?” “Love that scent you’re wearing. Come let me get a better whiff.”

They kind of deserved it.  Anyhow, there’s eight fewer bucks on the farm.  I have eight more March kids to leave the farm, and then it will just be the June kids that need sold later in the fall.

    Oh my, I can’t imagine handling the bucks. Enjoy your day, wishing you a great new week ahead.

      Luckily they are not too big yet. Most are my tame bottle kids, so that makes them easier to handle.

    It’s hard to imagine that those little guys could be so eager already. I hope you’re able to keep things under control!

    How old is Harley? I hope she can be kept from breeding. She’s had a lot of problems.

      Harley is 8 1/2. She will not get bred. I only have three little bucks left, and they might get banded while they finish growing.
