Yearling Decisions

4 Jun

I still have quite a few of last year’s kids on the farm.

Tansy and Cupid (front); Flora and Trace (back)

I thought I knew who was staying and who was leaving, but now I’m second guessing myself.


Of course, Popcorn is staying.


There’s also no way I’m getting rid of my gurl Purl.  She is my sweetie.

Purl and Hilda

Onyx was chosen to help me make the perfect kid, and she’s going to kid soon, so she is staying.  That was easy.


Her twin sister, Ruby, is always with Victoria.

I’ll feel bad selling her, but she was never going to be kept, and she’s not friendly at all.  I know she’s still leaving.

Since Tansy ended up getting bred, she’ll stay.  She will also be a possible backup for making the perfect kid.  I just wish she would be nice.


I couldn’t part with my sweet 2TC.  She is not as sweet as she used to be, but she does like rump scritches, and she will be staying.


Then there’s the last two…Trace and Flora.  I had planned on Trace staying, but she isn’t very friendly anymore.  I try.  Really, I do, but I also don’t want to keep more goats who are hard to work with.  But I adore her, and she’s Mary’s last kid.


Then there’s Flora.  I was planning on selling her.  She is a little bit nicer than Trace, and she’s Annie’s last kid.


But Popcorn is the bigger issue.


He has a hard time making friends, and every time he makes friends, it’s with someone who ends up getting sold.  So who did he make friends with this time?  Flora.  I’d feel really bad if I sold his only friend yet again.

I’ll have to decide before long.

    Oh, boy! I don’t envy you having to make those decisions! I hope you can come up with the right ones. It’s really difficult.
