It’s That Time

13 Oct

Today, as you are reading this post, I should be giving girls shots to bring them into heat and sorting them and the bucks into their proper breeding groups.

Astra is looking good.

Over the weekend, I decided to put Frodo in with his sister because she was not happy by herself.  She did immediately perk up and start nibbling.  That was a good thing.

Rosie and Frodo

While I was at it, I caught Lemuel and put him in there too.  After all, that’s why I had prepped the pen so it could hold goats again.  I needed the two boys in there for this week.


Anyhow, some of the girls are messing with my plans.  Sidney and LilyAnn were both in heat over the weekend, so they won’t come back into heat so soon even with a shot. They will be June mamas or not at all this year.

And as of prepping this post over the weekend, I still haven’t decided what to do with a couple of girls.  Bubbles is on the edge for weight and Onyx is just so little.  She seems to have inherited her grandmaa Coffee’s mini-genes.


Of course, my old ladies and skinny Tansy were easy to know.


I just don’t know what to do with her.  I’ll update you as soon as I get everything decided and done.

    That’s quite a deal! How interesting that Rosie perked right up just by having her brother in there with her. We experienced a similar thing with a sweet miniature Schnauzer. She needed to be with the family. She had stopped eating, when she was taken to live with my younger daughter, after she got married. But her mother-in-law wouldn’t let he be in the house, so my daughter tried keeping her outside. It was a total failure. As soon as the sweet dog was brought back to our house, she perked right up! So she wasn’t able to live with “her girl” but with my husband and me. When we moved here, she came with us, and she became very fond of me. She was the best dog I’ve ever had. So I totally understand what Rosie went through.

    It will be interesting to learn what you will need to do with your girls, You have several things to think about, with all that goes on with each one.
