The First Day of Spring Break

8 Mar

With our nice weather, I’ve decided I can let my girls having kids stay outside.  I don’t have to shut them all in small pens to wait for delivery.

Ava

I did however decided I wanted to separate them from the rest of the herd.  That means, I had to build a temporary fence across the barnyard, from the corner of the Love Shack pen to the corner of the greenhouse pen.  I did this about three years ago (the last time we had nice weather over spring break), and it worked well, so my first day of spring break was spent getting this set up.

Ava, Pistol, and Antigone

I had just put the panels out, when the goats came up from pasture.  Those wethers are so helpful.

Myson with his butt planted where I needed to drive my posts.

Finally, I got the fence up with everyone on the Back Forty side.

Moose would like to lodge a complaint.

I moved most of the girls over.  The only two left for me to catch are Zinnia and Mary.  And they are the last two due, so I’ll try to catch them in the next couple of days, and it will be fine.

Mary

It didn’t take long for them to figure out to go out to pasture.

Annie (Cutie and Reva on the front pasture)

Gidget and Victoria headed out to eat.

It won’t be long before 2TC has company.

I did have to shut Maggie and Harley in the Love Shack because they just are not up to running around.

Cookie I did let out. We’ll see how she does.  There’s room in the Love Shack if I need to put her in with Maggie and Harley.

Of course, Marge and Chiffon are wherever they want to be.  Silly bratty girls.  I’m not sure why the are in the Love Shack eating hay, but they have to go through there to get from one side to the other.

I think I’m ready for kidding to begin!

I can’t believe we’re going into spring break this weekend.  I have nine girls due between March 10th and 13th.

Victora (Casey to her right)

Reva (Victoria to her left)

Then there’s Mary.  She’s probably going to be due around March 15th, but that’s a guess since I didn’t plan her kids.

Stinking oopsie babies.

More of Who’s Due

21 Feb

Annie is due over spring break.

Hopefully Antigone settled for June.

Aphrodite will hopefully give me June babies. Moose is just fat. 😉

Astra is due on April 1st.

Ava is also giving me spring break babies–probably my last Fionn babies.

Cutie is due over spring break.

I think Daisy settled for the first week of April.

Sidney (and her triplet sister LilyAnn) seems to have settled for the first week of April.

Victoria, the oldest one I purposely bred, is due over spring break.

Margarita managed to get herself bred for the last part of May.
