The Circus Continues

15 Oct

By the time I went out to do chores Saturday, Fionn was out again.  He saw me start to feed, and he was happy to go back to the Love Shack and have his private meal.  Since then, he’s stayed in.

Fionn, Xerxes and Astra

I also noticed that Antigone was coming into heat.  When I went out the next day, I saw that she aborted from the shot I gave her.  That means she had been bred by one of the little boys I hadn’t sold yet.  I’m glad she isn’t going to have babies in February (or January) some day while I’m at work.  I will give everyone else a shot also to make sure my old ladies aren’t going to have oopsie babies, too, because it would kill them.  She will have a chance to get bred for June babies.

Antigone

Do you notice anything about Caroline?  She’s behind a fence.  She’s not supposed to be behind the fence.  That’s where I have Chiffon and Venus trying to recover from the copper (Chiffon is doing well; Venus is in pretty bad shape).  Brat.

Caroline in back; Anubis

Although, that’s better than Hera who came into heat and keeps jumping up on the workbench where Anubis can’t get to her.  We’ll have to wait and see if she comes back in heat or if she decided to love him for five minutes. I swear…  If only I had waited a day I would have realized that, like Antigone, the little bucks had already bred her.  She will also get put back with Anubis for June kids.

Hera

Finally, Sunday night, I saw Wanda was in heat.  Xerxes was happy, but Fionn just kept staring.

I told him if they had all stayed where I put them, he’d be the one dancing the rumba with her.  Anyhow, Monday was the day to get everyone put back where they belong, and it actually went better than I thought it might.  It didn’t hurt that Zinnia had finally come into heat and was distracting Xerxes while I moved the rest of his girls.
