Second Guessing

13 May

I just posted my predictions for who was kidding in June and who wasn’t.  Now I’m second guessing myself.

Purl (not bred) and Hilda (obviously pregnant)

Antigone was with Xerxes for a really long time, but she was really run down after raising kids last year and I didn’t have anywhere else to put her that she would get to go in and get a bit of extra care.  I just checked again, and I think she’s starting to make an udder.  She is probably due much later in the summer than everyone else–maybe July or even August.


I am letting her in the milk room to get extra feed, and I’ll keep pampering her.

In related news (kind of), I keep trying to get a picture of Jasmine and Aladdin to be next year’s tail count kids, but they are not cooperating.

If I can’t get them, I at least have a backup with Tippy and Tawny.

Seriously? I’m thinking next year and we aren’t even done kidding this year.

    I hope Antigone will do well. It’ll be interesting to see just when she kids, won’t it! It sounds like she really needs that pampering.

    Tippy and Tawny would make a cute picture for the tail count for next year. But who knows – you may find another cute pair from this year! Aladdin is definitely a cutie! I know you’ll figure it all out.

    Tail counts are amusing shots, just never thought about how difficult it was to get them.

    What fun, tail counting. I love the last shot of Tippy and Tawny. I hope all goes well with Antigone. Take care, have a happy weekend!
