Despite My Best Plans

3 Nov

I swear some years breeding goats is like kicking yourself in the teeth.  No matter how hard you try, it never works out the way you want.  After all my craziness of trying to make spring break kids while I was sick, I keep finding girls whom I thought were bred coming into heat.

Cupid

Yesterday, it was Astra.

Xerxes and Astra

She was hanging out by the fence, and making out with Xerxes.  Then I came back out to do chores and saw this.

Um.  April fool’s babies it is.  I brought her back out and fixed the fence.

She was not happy with that.

Zeus wasn’t too happy either.  Xerxes wasn’t about to let anyone else near Astra, but he thought he should get a girl too.

Zeus

Don’t feel too sorry for him because last week he jumped the fence while Bambi was in heat.

Bambi

I swear.  Now I’m giving shots to all of my little girls because the last thing I want is my babies having babies in the middle of winter.

Penelope

And I locked up the last two little bucks.  I put them in the Love Shack with Tony.

Ringo and LilyAnn

Of course, Ringo managed to escape by morning, so this evening, I have to catch him and try to find someplace that will hold him.  I’m running out of options!
