Notes from the Barnyard

23 May

Tansy’s girl, Alice, was not nursing both sides.  Her udder looked painful and about to explode on one side.  I finally caught her and got that side milked out.  Now Alice is nursing both sides, and Tansy looks much more comfortable.

I have Margarita up north in case she does have her babies before I’m done working.

I am also keeping an eye on Penelope.  I asked her when she was due, and she just gave me a coy Mona Lisa smile.  So I have no idea when she’s going to kid.

Penelope

It cracks me up at how Freddie and Frodo have bonded.  They are always together.  You can definitely see the father-son resemblance.

Chiffon looks like she could kid any second.  I will say, she had her triplets a week early last year, and it’s looking like there might be a repeat.

Astra and Perdita were snuggled together the other evening when it was cold on Saturday.  So far, Perdita hasn’t gotten stuck in the fence again.  I hope that holds.

Rosie was trying to figure out how to reach all those maple leaves that are finally on the trees.

Bratty Flora kept her horn apparatus on for less than two days.  I hope she has learned her lesson.

I’m not holding my breath though.
