Bambi is Moved

22 Mar

I am already getting ready for my next oopsie babies.  Bambi is due on March 26th.  At least I know when she’s due and who bred her–that was the first (of many) day Zeus got out.

Bambi

Bambi is a brat, and she can be rather difficult to do anything with.  It’s made worse because she doesn’t have horns for me to grab and drag her places.  But I got her moved with the moms!

How did I do that?

She can’t resist peanuts.  She would follow me anywhere for peanuts.

Thank goatness!  Now I’m going to have to come up with a name for oopsie baby number 5 (and maybe six and seven).  So far I have Uno, 2TC, Trace, and Quatro.  Any number 5 name suggestions?

My Christmas cactus is blooming!  It’s been a couple of years since it’s had blooms, so I am happy to see them.

My bratty Bambi.

I hope you aren’t tired of 2TC yet.

We went back to winter on Saturday.

I got to see the red-bellied woodpecker.  I really miss my bird feeders.

Just some more of the kids.

There are kids everywhere now!

What Have I Done?

19 Feb

With Maggie aborting, it threw me into a panic of who else might be bred. I spent some time last weekend doing udder checks–feeling udders to see who might be pregnant.  There’s no need to check Blaze.  I just need her to pop those oopsie babies out so I can quit getting up at two in the morning.

Blaze

No need to check Gidget either.  She’s obviously due for spring break, just like I planned.

Joani, Gidget, Cutie, Bubbles

I checked all my little girls, and they are good–no udders growing.  Well, except, I couldn’t truly check Bubbles because she threw a hissy fit and wouldn’t let me touch her, but I will keep trying to check her.

Bubbles

Her maa, however, is another story.  Mary is definitely making an udder.

I also think Joani is going to have kids well before June.  You might recall, she just spent time with Fionn to get bred.  I think that was a waste of time now.

Joani

I’m guessing she’ll be due around the other girls who Zeus bred for the first week of April.

Cupid and Hera are both expecting the first part of April (and making udders)

I was suspicious about Cookie a while ago, so I felt her again, and I am afraid she is pregnant.  She really struggled last year, so I had no intention of breeding her.  Like Maggie, she’d been given a shot to prevent it.

Cookie

Then I checked Dolly because I know she shouldn’t be bred.  I gave her two or three shots (every dang time Zeus got out).  I really hate to say it, but she feels like she’s making an udder.

Pluto (her last kid) and Dolly

She’s going to be twelve this summer.  At this point, I began wondering if I was wrong and just couldn’t tell if they were making an udder.  I hope I’m wrong.

I checked Litha and Stormy and Bonnie and Harley–all goats I’ve seen in heat.  Not making an udder.

Stormy

Luckily, Coral, who has never had a baby, isn’t making an udder.

Coral (Reva behind her is due for spring break)

I didn’t check Penny because she hurts me when I touch her udder, but I’ll try to sneak a feel when I can find an opportunity.

Penny

All these really old girls (or the ones I was just planning on retiring), are getting extra care (food and copper).

I hope it’s enough.  I really do wonder if the bottle of lutalyse was bad.  I’ve never had it fail before.
