More Girls in Heat

29 Oct

Since I last updated you on the breeding progress, I’ve had a couple more girls come into heat.  I was a bit surprised to see Zinnia in heat.  Really.  She looked like she was in heat and Xerxes bred her.

But she was really acting like she was in heat last Friday.  I know because my otherwise wonderful girl can’t keep from getting her head stuck in the fence when she’s in heat.  It’s rather annoying actually because I had to remove her head from the fence to milk her that morning.  Then I had to remove it from the fence again when I was getting ready to leave for work.  I got smart and left the hole open (instead of bending the cut chunk of panel back into place).  That worked because she was not stuck when I got home.

Anyhow, I don’t know what is going on with her.  I’ll just wait and see if she gets her head stuck again.  Chiffon was also in heat.

I wasn’t sure about her when she was with Benji, but Friday evening, she was definitely in heat.

Most recently Aphrodite and Venus seem to have come into heat.  I really wanted to have as many of the girls kid in March as possible.  Partly because it’s just healthier for the moms and kids, but also because my mom and I want to go on vacation next summer, and I don’t want little kids to worry about.

My list of girls to have June babies is growing.  Dang.
