Holy Hormones!

11 Oct

I will be glad when I get a bunch of my girls bred for spring break babies.  The hormones are bit crazy with all these girls coming into heat.

Litha, Stormy and Hilda

They are literally fighting over the bucks.

Xerxes and Zeus watching Litha and Stormy fight.

Crazy goats.  They are twins.  They are ten.  They are not getting a buck.  They are retired.  At least Hilda is smart enough to stay out of the fight.

Fionn (and Zeus) watching the girls

I can’t get Maybeline and Odie to look at Tony and these old, retired ladies are fighting over the bucks.  Figures.

A Hot Mess

29 Sep

I don’t usually refer to my girls as being a hot mess when they are in heat.  It’s normal hormones, and they can’t help it.  Astra seems to be taking this to the extreme though.

Xerxes and Astra

It’s the same as last time.  She doesn’t want to leave Xerxes.

I just told her a couple days ago that it’s nice her face was clean and white again.  Now, she’s been making out with Xerxes again.

She would starve if her heat cycle lasted very long.  Everyone else went across pasture, browsing on all the grass.

She stayed by Xerxes. And he’s just as bad.

He wasn’t interested in Daisy when she came over to see what was going on.

Xerxes, Myson, Astra, and Daisy

It’s so bad that they were both standing in the rain.  I had to go get a picture just as I was getting ready to publish this.

Oh, those two.  Hopefully, they will get their wish and she’ll get bred in a couple of weeks.

Stinky Season

11 Sep

It’s that time of year when the bucks get all stinky.

The wethers are fighting with the bucks through the fence.

Xerxes and Myson

The girls are starting to wag their tails and flirt with the boys.

Xerxes and Astra

I have to say, I agree with Astra that Xerxes is a handsome buck.

It won’t be long before I arrange to mix them for making spring break babies.
