In Time Out

8 Mar

While getting those first moms moved was easy and everyone had been getting along, that changed.

Antigone lounging before I brought the soon-to-be moms over.

Antigone and Perdita really act like sisters who can’t get along.

Antigone and Perdita

I could not get Antigone to quit picking on Perdita.

Honestly, I shouldn’t be too surprised because she hasn’t been with the herd for four months–she’s been pampered with Xerxes in the buck room.

She was fighting so much and so hard that she was panting and coughing.  I thought she was going to have a heart attack or send herself into labor a month early.  I decided to put her in the garage for a little bit.  I had just put Tux back in there because I needed to put a dose of Revolution on him for the ear mites.


Antigone was so hopped up on whatever that she tossed her head at him and threatened him and stomped at him.  I finally shut her in the buck room for a time out.

Later, I brought her back out to try and get her back to getting along.  She did do better, but then she was right back after Perdita.

She ended up with scraped up horn pads

I finally shut her in the Love Shack.  And I added Caroline.  They seem to be doing well together, and Caroline is trying to eat all the food so Antigone can’t get it.

Antogine and Caroline

It might work out well for both of them.
