Going and Staying

6 Jul

It’s time to say good-bye to the March babies that are not staying on the farm.  It’s time.  They are becoming a pain.

He doesn’t even say “thank you;” just “what took you so long to get here.”  I am ready to throw him in with the bucks so I at least don’t have to walk so far to get him out.

They are big.

I never like saying good-bye, but I have to say it is a relief this time with all the copper issues.  The Maisie’s boys (above) and Giselle (below) all have neurological issues, so it will be good to quit worrying about whether or not they’ll make it to sale.

Giselle

Sadly, I had a forever farm lined up for Giselle, but that isn’t going to happen now.  In good news, though, it means that Hera will be taking her place (and Hera is a sweetie).

Hera

Aphrodite will go to the same farm.  Since they are wanted for milking does, the girls will stay here until they have babies next year, so you’ll get to keep seeing them for a while.

I’m also keeping Cinnamon’s girl, Athena, who is just gorgeous!

Zeus (who is Hera’s twin brother) will stay to replace his dad, Sam.

Then I might as well give in and just accept that Antigone will be staying.  Even though she’s kind of a brat, I adore her.

Is it just me or does it look like someone did a really bad job of photoshopping horns out–oops, forgot one!

Sweet Goddess

31 May

Athena was wild.  Her mom, Cinnamon, was doing a good job raising her, and I didn’t have to do anything with her.  That means she didn’t get attention from me.

I want to keep her, but I really don’t want to keep any more wild girls.  I suggested to Cinnamon that she tell her girl I’m not so bad.

About two days later, Athena was sweet.  She liked to have her head scratched.

She’s just a perfect little goddess!

Thanks, Cinnamon.  I appreciate it.

Milking

15 May

Despite finding out what is wrong with my kids and being able to treat it, there’s nothing I can do for the kids who have already had neurological damage.  That means I had to have Clover’s babies put down.

Now I’m milking again.

I was surprised how much milk Clover had because she didn’t have hardly any when the kids were born.

Of course, since I’m milking, Cinnamon decided she was going to be milked also.

Athena was not quite as happy about that.

But she’ll be fine, and I’m probably going to need that milk for June kids.
