Oopsie! I Was Wrong

21 May

When I did my Thursday evening check of the goats, I counted all ten kids.


I found Flora with her fresh horn apparatus on.  Because Wednesday evening, she was stuck in the fence again.


Perdita was there with her horn apparatus hanging from a single strand of duct tape.  But she was not in a fence!


Then I couldn’t find Purl.  Seriously.  I looked everywhere. Then I saw her clear down by the ditch.  I yelled down to remind her that the last goat is the one who gets eaten by the coyote.

Purl (she just hopped down when I took the picture)

Then I heard her talk.  That’s when everything flashed through my mind and I ran down to the ditch to see her oopsie baby.

Purl and her little Benji buck

She is one of the three girls I didn’t see come into heat when I put them in with the bucks to make June babies.

Venus was another.

Venus and Cody

That leaves Margarita.  So we might be having another oopsie baby in the near future.  Who knows?  Apparently, not me.


Anyhow, Purl did awesome.

Although, I do think she should have had him farther from the edge of the ditch.

I hauled him up to the Love Shack and she did a great job of following him.

They will stay in there for a day or two before moving up north.  Anyhow, I was wrong. We don’t have fourteen girls to have kids in June.  I don’t have a clue what’s going on.  I guess we’ll just have to wait and see.

    Now I am just giggling. Those girls and boys were on hormone highs!

      They do what they want to do. That’s for sure. I’m going to have to figure out how to keep two fences between Benji and the girls before fall.

    Oh my! Talk about confusion! They really have been doing their own thing(s) haven’t they? What a bunch of rascals! But you can’t help but love them! Purl has a beautiful Benji boy! Good thing she didn’t have any problems!

      Margarita does look like she has babies on board! I guess we’ll find out!
