And So It Begins

13 Oct

Last night I started plans for making spring break babies.  I wanted to just do everything last night, but there’s not enough time in the evenings after I get home.  Besides, with all the rain, the goats prefer to stay out in the pasture until they have to come up.  But I got things ready to go.  The first thing was to move Harley and the boys to the Love Shack.

The boys aren’t too happy with the small  pen, but they are not big enough to do a buck’s job yet.  That means hanging out with their honorary granny goat.

I kicked Antigone out so she could just be with her mom again.

I noticed that Caroline was in heat.  Since they are only in heat for about a day, I decided I had to put her in with the buck if I wanted her to have spring break kids.  I put her up north where Harley had been.

Then I caught Zeus and threw him in with her.  He still looks like such a kid!  Hopefully he’s up to the task.

As I was finishing, I saw Wanda was starting to flag (wag her tail at the boys), so I threw her up there too.

That means we’ve already started!  Woo hoo!  Spring break 2019!

Rain, Rain, Go Away

9 Oct

We’ve had way too much rain this fall.  It’s really starting to be an issue.  It’s already why we’re having such a bad worm season.

Now it’s impacting getting crops out of the fields.

Everybody is sick of mud.

We want some nice dry weather for a while.

And sunshine.

That would be good.  Sunshine would be really good.

Pluto Moved

30 Sep

Pluto was doing well in the Love Shack, and he was getting more vocal about being alone, so I moved him back up north with his brother, Antigone, and Harley.

He’s able to walk through the grass now without falling.

He’s gaining strength every day, but with our suddenly cooler temperatures, I might have to get him a scarf for his naked neck.

I still don’t think he’ll be racing his brother for a little while yet.

Soon, I’m going to have to get Antigone moved out before the boys get ideas about how good smelling looking she is.

They are certainly big enough to get the job done.

I’m also going to try to move Harley out in a couple of weeks.  I think her back is strong enough as long as she doesn’t fight.

Then those little boys can’t be making oopsie babies!
