First Fresheners

23 Sep

As I start thinking about next year’s kidding, I have quite a few girls who will have kids for the first time.  The two-year-olds are:

Trace

Purl

Flora

2TC

My only true yearling to be a first freshener will be Perdita.

She’ll wait until June, so that will give her a bit more time to grow.

Who’s Staying?

18 Aug

As I’ve begun selling this year’s kids, I’ve had to think about who is staying.  It’s never easy.  I mentioned Ruby is leaving, but you might remember Flora was also on my list to sell.

Flora

Then I couldn’t decide. She is Popcorn’s only friend.

Maybe I should sell Trace instead, but I really think I have to see what an adorable baby she and Benji will make.

Trace

So, I am going to keep both of them.

The kids from this year are much easier to decide.  I am keeping Pretzel.

She and Frodo are going to give me the perfect kid.

But Frodo and Rosie are both staying.

I have a backup plan for the perfect kid.  Heaven forbid anything should happen to Pretzel or Frodo, I do have a backup plan.  That is Rosie.

And Lemuel.  Those two will also give me a perfect kid.  I’m not sure I’ll keep him that long, but he is my insurance.

Lemuel

Don’t forget, I decided early in the spring that Perdita was too cute and smart and sassy to sell.

That’s it.  Unless I can make Sylvia tame.

She’s beautiful and would make a great milking doe.  You know, if I could tame her down.
