Who’s Due For Spring Break

12 Jan

Well, I think most of my girls did not settle for spring break kids.

I’m glad Joani didn’t settle because she’s suddenly showing her age.

But I do have a few who I think are due for spring break.

I think Penelope is bred, but she’s in with Freddie if she didn’t.

Hera is starting to look round.

I do believe Benji bred Cupid for his only spring break kids. (with Tansy beside her)

I haven’t seen Bubbles come back into heat.

I’m pretty sure Athena settled.

I think Hilda settled; this will probably be her last time. (with Rosie)

It looks like Antigone has settled.

I’ll start doing udder checks pretty soon to see if I can confirm my suspicions. I think I have two who are going to give me oopsie babies.

I haven’t seen Aphrodite in heat since she got in with Xerxes.

I think Tansy settled after her little visit with the bucks too.

And I have no idea with Caroline (who also got in with the bucks twice).  I guess I’ll find out eventually.

Basking Season

2 Jan

After a week of gloomy, drizzle, fog, clouds, snow and horrible wind chills, we’ve had a slight turn.  There’s sunshine and no wind this morning.  Granted, it’s only 4°F out there, but it’s still better than yesterday.

The goats agree.  They came out of the barn to bask in the sunshine.

During the winter storm yesterday, I found Antigone huddled behind the door (that crack to the right of Bubbles).

I had to pull her out because she has just a tiny bit of baby bump that meant she couldn’t get out.  I put her in the Love Shack with Flower.  She looks much more content this morning.

Antigone

Some of the critters are still staying inside.

I still really worry about the animals.  We have a couple days of warmer temperatures coming and then another dive into Arctic temperatures before jumping up to the freezing point again.  Poor babies.

Bambi

Others are out looking for bits of leftovers from yesterday.

Penelope

Don’t worry, they are getting plenty to eat in this cold.

I have finished my calendar for next year, and I am especially happy with the variety to this one.

In fact, it might be my favorite one so far.

Edited:  Due to interest in people wanting the calendar, I am adding a LINK that I think will let you purchase the calendar directly from Shutterfly.
