We’ll Have Lots of Kids

18 Oct

I don’t think I mentioned, but I did decide not to put Onyx in with a buck.  We’ll see if she grows any more.

It has been quite the busy couple of days out here.

Xerxes and his girls

I think my shots I gave the girls brought almost all of them into heat.

It’s still weird looking out and seeing Xerxes in the barnyard.  I’m not used to that.

We’ll have lots of babies.  I think Margarita and Caroline are the only two with Xerxes who didn’t come into heat.

I think Purl is the only one with Freddie I didn’t definitely see in heat; although, as wet as her tail is, she might have been bred.  Yes, she’s still spending a lot of time on top of that feeder.

I’m not sure about Benji’s girls.  He’s not an older, experienced buck, so that makes it harder for me to tell, but I think all but 2TC came into heat.

I’ll keep an eye on everyone to see who setttles or might come into heat in three weeks, but there will be a lot of kids in March.  Now, I just need to get everyone separated again.
