My Black and White Cookie

8 Mar

When my son was here the other day, he looked out the window into the yard and exclaimed, “That’s one fat goat!”  Of course, I assumed he meant Blaze since she’s due next, but nope.  He was talking about my black and white Cookie.

She does look a bit fat, but I guarantee it’s all baby!

She’s due in about two weeks.

Fat.  Really?  She’s not fat.

I do hope  you’ll come back and join me for Friday’s Hunt.  The items for this week are at the top of my side bar.

A Pregnant Pistol

4 Jan

The Good.  So I’ve decided I think Pistol is pregnant.  Anyhow she’s awfully round, looks like she’s springing, and feels like she’s making an udder.  I also have not seen her come into heat since she was isolated with her back injury.  I’m not sure it’s good for her to be pregnant, but it is good that she is still walking and acting quite well.  You’d never guess she had a back injury.  I’m going to go with it being good.



The Random.  It does make it a challenge.  I went back to work after winter break today, and we don’t really have another day off until spring break kids.  I can narrow Pistol’s due date down to the last couple of weeks in February.  That’s cold.  That’s a challenge.  I’m glad the buck pen is done and insulated.  I’m pretty sure she and Muffin will get moved into there by mid-February.  Then, I need to get my family convinced to stop and check on her every couple of hours.  Sadly, that leaves me with the all night shift.

The Fun.  That would be Fionn’s area.  Pretty sure this means three of the last four years he’s bred someone through the fence.  At least I assume that’s what happened right before her injury because she has not been in with a buck.  That boy.  I really need a fence without holes.



Oh.  While I’m pretty sure she’s pregnant.  I might be wrong, but I don’t think so.  Goats are enough to drive you insane.

I do hope you’ll consider joining me for Friday’s Hunt this week.  The items are in the top of my sidebar, and the linky will open at 7pm central time on Friday.

Half Way There

9 Jan

It’s hard to believe, but my spring break babies are half way done.



I did think Helen was starting to look awfully round today.  Maybe she just needs to quit being such a pig because it’s awfully early to be showing.

At least we’ll be warmer by then.
