Here’s to a good weekend!

Rocky–just because he’s so handsome.

November sunsets are the best (and our snow is all gone now)

Even if they come way too early

While It Was Cold

I am so glad we are back to more seasonal weather now.  None of us were happy when it felt like January.

I wasn’t thrilled with already giving hay to everyone, but they appreciated it.

Even if it was just for napping on.

But, that is done now that it’s warmer again and the snow has melted in pasture.

The Kidding Outlook

17 Nov

I might have a record number of kids next year.  I mean, I’ll have to wait to know for sure–especially for Easter weekend kids.  Right now, it looks like there will be a lot of babies.  Poor Xerxes is looking like he won’t have any kids this year.

Poor Xerxes

Freddie seems to have bred all three of his girls for March: Onyx, Purl, and Perdita.

Onyx

Frodo seems to have bred Penelope for spring break.

Penelope is tentatively due March 16th.

Benji was a rock star for March.  I think he bred Athena, Trace, Hilda, Aphrodite, and Ostara.

Trace

Then he got out, and I believe he bred Cutie, Zinnia and LilyAnn.

Cutie

I was also afraid he bred Maisie.  She looks really good, so if he did breed her like I thought he did, she would have kidded, but it looks like she finally came into heat.  That is better.

Maisie is tentatively due March 16th.

The other old girls have had shots to prevent them from kidding.

In all the craziness of trying to get Easter kids, if Benji and Freddie combined managed to breed everyone I saw in heat, that would give me a lot of babies in one weekend.

Frodo and Benji

I saw Joy, Ava, Antigone, Tansy, Rosie, Venus, Bubbles, Flora, Daisy, Caroline, 2TC, Hera, Sidney, and Cupid all in heat.

Ava

That only leaves Pretzel, Chiffon, and Astra that I didn’t see in heat.  I will try Pretzel for June, and we’ll see about the other two.

Pretzel and Frodo have to give me my perfect kid.

They might get a year off.
