Alcatraz

11 Nov

I know I shared that Zeus was being naughty.  He managed to jump the fence and probably bred Bambi and Harley. If I can catch them, they will get a shot.  I’m not sure I’ll be able to catch and give Bambi a shot.  She’ll be okay if I can’t catch her.

Bambi

Harley has to have a shot because she’s now struggling with white line disease that has exacerbated her back injury.  She will get a shot.

Harley

Well, I fixed the fence where I thought he hopped over, and I figured we were all good.  Then I found him out with the girls again.  That day Stormy was in heat.

Stormy

Coral was in heat.  They are both in the category of having to have a shot because it would kill them to have kids too.

Coral

Then I got to thinking about it, and Dolly had been in heat the day before (I had just given her and Coral shots to make sure they hadn’t been bred before).  That’s too close for comfort, so she’ll get another shot.

Dolly

Then I noticed that both Caroline and Hera were in heat.  I assume he bred both of them.

Hera

That also annoyed me because they were supposed to be with Anubis.  Well, I guess that’s not going to happen now.

Caroline

I also think he managed to breed Daisy this time too.

Daisy

I caught Zeus and put him with the two little boys up north. That fence is a little better, and I had no idea where he got over, through or under this time.  Anyhow, that seemed to work.  For a little while.  Then I came home from work on Friday, and he was out again.  I was not happy.  This time, I’m pretty sure he bred Cupid and Sidney.  LilyAnn was in heat the day before, so she’s a question mark.

Cupid

Sidney

I put him back up north because I didn’t know what else to do with him.  I had to shut the girls in where I could catch them and sell them in the morning.  As soon as they were gone, I could shut him in there.  But before we got the girls loaded out, he jumped out and joined everyone out in pasture again.

Maggie (back), Cupid, Hera (lying), Marge, Bonnie, and Zeus

Seriously, dude?  I already threatened to sell him the night before.

Zeus and Annie

Now I have Cinnamon probably bred and Bonnie will get a shot.

Cinnamon

When they came up, I put him in the greenhouse.  I had to reinforce all of my panels because he was freaking out.  He was trying to climb and push and was highly upset that he couldn’t get out.

Zeus and Bonnie

Then I tried feeding everyone, and he was out eating with them.  How?????

Zeus

There was a two foot section above the gate.  I’m guessing that’s where he came through.  I put a panel across there.

Why? Why did you lock me up?  I want out. Let me out!  Now!

Sadly, if I can’t keep him in here, I will really have to sell him next weekend because I cannot keep giving these old ladies shots to keep them from having kids.  Hopefully, I’ve managed to make the greenhouse as escape proof as Alcatraz.

I’m also not happy with having kids for a month while I’m working.

Just Hanging Out

31 Oct

I love nice weekends when I can just hang out with the goats chilling in the barnyard.

Poki

Stormy and Casey

Glad I found time to enjoy it last weekend before we turned so cold.

Who Didn’t Get Caught

13 Oct

I mentioned I didn’t get all the girls caught and put in with the bucks.  I actually did better than I thought I might.  I was impressed I got Hilda in with Xerxes.   She was supposed to be with Zeus, but there’s no way I was dragging her there.  At least she’s with a buck.

Hilda

Still, I have four girls that I didn’t get caught.  After dragging Daisy across the barnyard to put with Zeus, there’s no way I was trying another difficult one.

Daisy

LilyAnn is in that same category.  She is way too much like her big sister Vinnie.  I’ll get her with a buck for June.

LilyAnn

Sidney would not have been bad to catch, but she did struggle raising her boys this year, so I thought I’d give her another copper capsule that could go just to her.  We’ll see if she gets a year off or if I put her with a boy for June babies.

Sidney

Joani is also still looking like she needs a rest.

Joani

After all, she did raise my only set of triplets this year, and she still has Wendy with her.

Wendy

Then there’s Maisie.  I just looked at her and decided she was fat and nasty tempered, and I was not about to deal with that while I was sick.

Maisie

We’ll put her with Fionn for June babies (but not in the Love Shack).
