Back to Guessing

10 May

I put Tony with Maybeline and Odie just after the first of July.

Maybeline and Odie

Now I get to wonder if they are bred.  I have no idea with Maybeline because she was so horrible we couldn’t ultrasound her last October, so she could have a cria anytime after the first of July.  Or maybe she’s not bred.

Maybeline

Odie was open when we did an ultrasound in October, but we say him breed her shortly after, so she could be due the second half of October through November.

Odie

He was only with Aurora for two weeks when he was not feeling well at all, so I assume she’s open.

These girls have already proven that they put their ears back and spit at all guys.  They are snooty broads.

But you never know.  Maybe they are going to have crias.

Only time will tell if we’re going to have a cria.

To the Back Pasture

6 May

We put the fence across the Back Forty last fall so I could keep the goats away from the Coyote Woods and try to avoid them being killed.  Well, I decided the days have gotten long enough that it’s time to let them back out there.  They are also keeping the part of the pasture they have eaten down.  It needs to grow.  The goats were on the bottom Saturday morning, so it was time.

I figured I’d go stand by the gates and just yell for them to come to me.

They would just have to follow the ditch and out into the long grass!  Of course, by the time I got down there, they’d traveled the wrong way and were clear at the far end. (They really are in the picture below.)

They finally heard me, and they took off running…right to the barnyard.  That’s where they usually go when I call to them.

Myson even stood there and watched me for a minute, but the herd mentality kicked in and he joined the rest of the herd.

Since the llamas were standing right there, I decided to try and get them to come see that the gate was open.

Maybeline, Aurora, and Odie

Aurora and Maybeline started towards me.

Then they decided they had to follow Odie back to the barnyard.

Seriously?  I suppose, in their defense, this is the time of day the llamas ususally go back up to the barnyard for drinks and dust baths.

But the goats.  Nope.  Oh well.  The llamas did make it out the next day.
