They are going to be disappointed if the winds blow the other direction and remove it.

Hanging With the Goats

30 Nov

Hanging with the goats is one of the best ways to keep track of their health and decide who has settled for kids and who hasn’t.  Two girls in particular were on my must be bred list–2TC and Trace.  They will both be three this year, and neither one has had a kid.

2TC (I think is bred)

Part of that is the odd breeding last year, and Benji was young the first time I tried breeding them. So I get it.

Trace

But Trace came back into heat again.  I will give her one more chance to get bred for this June, and I don’t know what I’ll do with her if she doesn’t get bred.  I’m not against goats who are strictly pets, but she is not easy to maintain.  She’s always one of the last ones to get caught for copper and hooves.  If they are going to be a pet, I want to be able to touch them.

Pluto was in love with her.

I really haven’t seen many others come back into heat from the ones bred for March, but I’ll find out this week who settled for April.

Flora I think is due for March

We’ll see if Tansy settled for Easter.

LilyAnn seems to have settled when Benji busted out.

Pretty sure Onyx will be one of the last girls to give me Freddie babies.

It’s looking like there will be plenty of spring babies.

While It Was Cold

I am so glad we are back to more seasonal weather now.  None of us were happy when it felt like January.

I wasn’t thrilled with already giving hay to everyone, but they appreciated it.

Even if it was just for napping on.

But, that is done now that it’s warmer again and the snow has melted in pasture.
