The Plan

10 Sep

I swear my plans always seem to go awry.  I planned to have all the March/April kids sold by now, but there were storms and power outages, and injuries and holidays.  I need to sell the rest of the kids.

Partly because of the copper issues.  I hate selling kids with icky looking tails because people assume they are wormy.  They aren’t.  They just need a better diet because they are too wild for me to easily catch and give a copper capsule.

Milo

They are at risk of becoming seriously ill. I hate getting into the cycle of low copper and worms and having it spiral out of control.  It breaks my heart, but I couldn’t save Avril.  I lost her on Tuesday.

It just becomes a nightmare trying to coordinate dates and help for loading out and such, but I’m planning on selling the next round this weekend.  I really have to get rid of the boys because of the risk of oopsie babies.  I don’t want another free-for-all kidding season.

It won’t be long until I have to do something with those last little boys too–Seven, Octavius, and Archie.

And nothing better interfere with my plans this time!
