Farewell to Move Goats

8 Feb

I said good-bye to Zeus and Anubis this morning.

I had only planned on keeping them a year, and they made it through two breeding seasons, but I still hate to see them go. If you look behind them, you can see why I had to sell them now.

The Love Shack is crowded with that many goats.  I’m going to move them and a couple other old (wimpy Antigone) goats in there.

Maggie, Cookie, Harley, Margarita and Chiffon and Marge

Cookie and Maggie are going to be long term needing extra care (and protection from other goats)

I’m probably going to kick Chiffon and Marge out into the main herd.  They’ve been slipping out anyhow and playing with everyone else.

They also come in and get extra sweet feed with Venus and Moira.

Once I get them moved, I can move Maisie and Uno to the Love Shack.

I caught Hilda picking on the boy this morning. That snow on his coat is from Hilda dumping him into the snow.  Brat.

That will open up the garage because it won’t be long until I have spring break babies.

Then I can see if Zeus and Annie gave me a beautiful little black and white spotted baby girl.
