Who’s Staying?

18 Aug

As I’ve begun selling this year’s kids, I’ve had to think about who is staying.  It’s never easy.  I mentioned Ruby is leaving, but you might remember Flora was also on my list to sell.


Then I couldn’t decide. She is Popcorn’s only friend.


Maybe I should sell Trace instead, but I really think I have to see what an adorable baby she and Benji will make.


So, I am going to keep both of them.

The kids from this year are much easier to decide.  I am keeping Pretzel.


She and Frodo are going to give me the perfect kid.


But Frodo and Rosie are both staying.

I have a backup plan for the perfect kid.  Heaven forbid anything should happen to Pretzel or Frodo, I do have a backup plan.  That is Rosie.


And Lemuel.  Those two will also give me a perfect kid.  I’m not sure I’ll keep him that long, but he is my insurance.


Don’t forget, I decided early in the spring that Perdita was too cute and smart and sassy to sell.

That’s it.  Unless I can make Sylvia tame.


She’s beautiful and would make a great milking doe.  You know, if I could tame her down.

    Oh, what a task this one is!! I’m glad you’re definitely keeping Popcorn’s friend, Flora! He really needs a permanent friend, doesn’t he!

    I hope you can tame Sylvia! She’s so beautiful! I’d love to see he grow up. And if you had said you were going to sell Pretzel, you’d have heard a long, loud, NOOOOOO!!!! coming from my direction!! She is so gorgeous! It’s going to be such fun to see what beautiful kids Pretzel and Frodo will have. Do you plan to breed Rosie and Lemuel right away, too? Or wait and see what Pretzel and Frodo give you? O goodness! Such a task! I wish you luck.

      Pretzel and Frodo will not get bred for next year. They’ll have another year to grow up.
      Rosie will stay and get bred for the same spring (2023). We’ll see if it is with Lemuel or someone else.
