Not Spring Break Weather

11 Mar

My first girl is due today–Onyx.  That means she could have had her baby a couple of days earlier, so I started going out in the evening and before bed.  Sometimes, when it’s spring break babies it’s nice enough for them to just hang out in the barnyard.  Not this year.

snow on Thursday

After the snow and rain and snow on Thursday, we did see some melting on Friday, but the nights were cold.

Then there was more snow in the forecast for Saturday, followed by more cold.

That means I kept trying to shut Onyx in the buck room and the little pen south of the garage.  I had her mom, Victoria in there with her for company.  She kept jumping the fence and ditching her mom.

Headed out to check Onyx Thursday evening

Finally, on Thursday afternoon, I shut her in the buck room–no open door to the outside. I also decided it would let me turn on the heat lamp and warm it up if she had her kid(s) when we were down to 11°F.

Onyx and Victoria (sorry for the really bad cell phone picture)

Well…The snow finally arrived just after noon.

And I’m still waiting on Onyx to have her kids.

But she’s inside where it’s nice and warm!

      We had five or six inches today–still light snow now. I am not happy with kidding weather this week.

    Our weather is colder again too, no snow except for a little snow shower.
    I hope all goes well with the kidding. Have a great day and happy new week!

    The weather here in Idaho, has been up and down, cloudy and clear, snowy, and now the snow has been melting, and there are huge puddles, water over some roads. It’s quite the deal!

      We’ve had some of that here. I’m grateful it isn’t as bad as California and some other places, but this is not the weather I wanted for kidding.
