Trying to Decide

14 Jan

I still have a few girls I’m trying to decide whether or not they are bred for spring break.

LilyAnn (with Haley looking on)

If I can catch them, I might throw them in the greenhouse with Zeus and Anubis just to make sure.

Athena

I’m also going to try to put Wanda in there.  She’s still not as heavy as I’d like, and her fur is just starting to grow back from where she scraped it off.

I’m also looking at a couple of other girls who might just be going to have oopsie babies before spring break.  Hopefully, it won’t be until after we’re done breeding for June babies because Zeus and Anubis are going to get sold right away after we’re done.  I just need the space.

Blaze

I am really going to be glad when this kidding year is done.

Drying Up

8 Dec

After a solid week without moisture, the barnyard is finally starting to dry up.  Don’t get me wrong, there’s still mud, but it’s not ridiculous boot sucking mud.

Moira

The goats are actually okay with lounging in outside in the barnyard now.

LilyAnn

Since it’s mostly dry, I even let Reva keep her silver boot off after she removed it herself.  And her foot is healing.  It just needs air and dry.

Of course, it’s not going to get any drier because we have rain/snow coming tomorrow.

Astra

We really don’t need that.

Despite My Best Plans

3 Nov

I swear some years breeding goats is like kicking yourself in the teeth.  No matter how hard you try, it never works out the way you want.  After all my craziness of trying to make spring break kids while I was sick, I keep finding girls whom I thought were bred coming into heat.

Cupid

Yesterday, it was Astra.

Xerxes and Astra

She was hanging out by the fence, and making out with Xerxes.  Then I came back out to do chores and saw this.

Um.  April fool’s babies it is.  I brought her back out and fixed the fence.

She was not happy with that.

Zeus wasn’t too happy either.  Xerxes wasn’t about to let anyone else near Astra, but he thought he should get a girl too.

Zeus

Don’t feel too sorry for him because last week he jumped the fence while Bambi was in heat.

Bambi

I swear.  Now I’m giving shots to all of my little girls because the last thing I want is my babies having babies in the middle of winter.

Penelope

And I locked up the last two little bucks.  I put them in the Love Shack with Tony.

Ringo and LilyAnn

Of course, Ringo managed to escape by morning, so this evening, I have to catch him and try to find someplace that will hold him.  I’m running out of options!
