In Heat in the Cold

29 Jan

Ironically, as we are experience record cold with dangerous temperatures and wind chills, Hera came into heat.

In the twenty-four hours that the girls are in heat and putting off all those hormoes, there’s only about five minutes that they actually want to stand for the buck.

That means, she and Anubis were running around and expending all kinds of energy they shouldn’t have been wasting on these games with the cold.  Silly kids.

It’s a good thing Anubis has a clue about what’s going on.  Hopefully, Hera will stand for him, and we’ll have Hera and Anubis babies in June!

Pluto was just like, “What are you two doing?  Why don’t you come on in where its warmer.”

I did finally go out and shut them in.

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.

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.

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.
