More Kids Leave

13 Sep

Friday evening, I worked to catch more kids.  I finally got ten goats penned for Saturday morning load out, but they are getting harder to catch.

Kids penned and other kids checking them out.

Of course, the first goat I managed to catch was Sylvia.  I really thought about keeping her, but I’m tired of goats who won’t let me touch them, so I did load her.

Sylvia and her twin sister Simone

I also caught Jack, who was born in June, the boys from up north, Simone, Gemma, Pinta, and Greta.   They made a pretty full load.

Popcorn always likes load out day because he comes out into the driveway and eats.  This boy is spoiled.


Anyhow, I put Popcorn back in the barnyard and headed for the sale barn.

I arrived at a good time because there was just two trailers in front of me (there was a longer line when I left), so I didn’t have to wait long at all.

Of course, every time I looked in the rear view mirror all the way down, I got to see cute little Sylvia. Dang brat.

I backed up to the chute, and had them unloaded before they came to help me, and I was on my way again.

I thought I’d try milking Cutie since I took both of her girls, but she really doesn’t have much milk.  She’s looking a bit run down, so she is not getting milked.

Cutie Pie

Zinnia is not letting her girl nurse since I sold Jack.  She has a decent amount of milk, so I’ll milk her too, to help fill up my freezer.  It was a good thing to get the kids sold. I have one more trip of kids from this year.

    I had sort of forgotten that you were going to take another load of kids to the sale yard. I’m glad you were able to catch Sylvia. I was afraid she might be able to evade you. She’s such a pretty girl.

    Cutie Pie does look tired and run down. How old is she? It seems that she looks thin, too.

    When do you plan to take the other load of kids?

      Cutie is 5. She is up north resting and getting extra food. I am going to try and do the last load this weekend.
