More Miscellany

24 Jul

I am still busy trying to clean the barn out. It’s been put on hold a little bit with the excessive heat, family visits, and other projects.

Penelope is way cuter than just the manure spreader.

At least Aurora has quit freaking out over the changes in there.  She will walk through all on her own now.

Margarita–just because she’s cute.

My orange tree appreciated being re-potted.  It’s rewarding me with blossoms and little oranges.

My current knitting project–another scarf.

Here’s a hint at my next knitting project.  I’m not sure how it’s going to work, but I’m going to try. We’ll see…

Finally, I’m still waiting for Maybeline to reveal her secret.

Maybeline

I do think she’s close, but with an 11 1/2 month gestation period, who knows how long close is.

Retirements

27 Apr

I can tell you right now, there’s going to be a lot of girls retiring this year.

Haley

It’s been rough on them.

Mary

I think the copper capsules I gave them at the time they were bred went to the babies.  I am so happy to say that I am still not seeing any neurological issues from lack of copper before they were born.

But my moms are struggling.  They have hair loss, bottle jaw caused by anemia, lice, and general not doing well. I just wish I had a better plan how to help them.

I think the only thing I can do is retire anyone who has struggled.  Don’t get me wrong.  I still have quite a few girls who are doing well.

Margarita with her peanut. She’s a question mark too because I stressed so much about how little she is.

We’ll see how my girls that are due in June handle it.

Hera

I’ve also decided to keep Bubbles.

Bubbles

She will be a replacement for her maa, Mary, and her Aunt Bonnie.  Because I do love my spotted goats.
