The Making of an Oopsie Baby

12 Nov

It’s been one of those falls that make me want to pull my hair out and wonder why I do this.  I had wormy June babies, and it was all the boys.  I wormed them, and we’re past it, but it meant I couldn’t sell them until after the withdrawal date for the wormer.  Then the weather has been cold on the weekends, Margarita was taking my time, and, and and…

Well, now Sidney came into heat and got bred.  I will actually end up giving her and all the little girls a shot so they don’t settle because some are too young, and I’m not having first time moms kid while I’m still working.  Those boys have to go next weekend.  No matter what.

All the Kids

It hit me today that things have been so crazy I don’t think I’ve shown you the Oopsie Kids for a while.  I’m not even sure I’ve told you all of their names.  So here they are!

This is Maisie’s boy, Hercules, all cleaned off and showing off those adorable wattles.

Two of Dolly’s kids, Sidney and Andy, were enjoying playing on mom.

Her third baby, LilyAnn, was looking awfully pleased with basking in the sun.

Ron is in the barnyard (I have a pen for him at night), and he decided to take a nap by Llenny.

Ellie May is no longer getting a supplemental bottle, but she really thinks she should have one.

And there you have all seven of the Oopsie Kids!  They are really getting to that fun age when they like to play and bounce and run all over the place!

Maisie is killing me.  Today is five days past her due date.

I’ve never had a goat go more than five days past their due date.

I just want to go to bed for the whole night.

If you want to join me for Friday’s Hunt this week, I have the list at the top of my side bar.
