Snug

15 Jan

I am glad I moved Tony into the buck room.  It is warmer there.

Although with Xerxes and his girls it makes for a full room.

He also Aurora in there with him.

We’ll see how that turns out.

For now, it makes it easier for me to make sure they both get plenty to eat.  I’ll move Aurora with the other llamas when I remove everyone from the breeding groups.

Moving Day

6 Jan

Today is the day I had to move everyone around to make June babies.  It was a bit more challenging this year.

Zeus, Xerxes and Fionn

I have two extra little bucks.

Anubis and Pluto

I have old ladies that are getting extra care.

I had to figure out what to do so that everyone was with a buck or away from a buck.  I also wanted to move Tony Llama into the buck room. It’s a lot better shelter and I want to make sure he has extra feed because he’s still thin, and he’ll have the front pasture which has more for him to eat.  It’s driving me crazy, and he’s the only critter on the farm that I’m truly worried about.

Tony

Moving llamas was the first order of business.  I thought Buster might be difficult, but he was really good for me.

Buster

He is back with the main herd and Maybeline and Odie.  I figure those girls will be able to put him in his place if he starts acting like a stud with them.

Odie

That means Tony is with Xerxes and his girls.  He only has Cookie and Zinnia with him.

I thought about retiring Cookie, but she is looking good, and she’s had a couple rounds of copper, so I decided we’d let her have kids for one more year.

Xerxes might already be done with his work for June babies.

Xerxes and Zinnia

We’ll see if they settle.

I  hope so!

Getting Ready to Shuffle Again

21 Dec

This year has been a challenge to figure out where to put everyone for breeding times.

Aphrodite and Zinnia

It’s extra challenging because of the ones I have in the north paddock right now.

Harley, Anubis and Tony

Tony seems to be doing better.  His appetite is increasing and his poops are back to how they should be.  I still have no idea what was going on, but I am glad he’s eating better.

Tony

I just wish he’d pick up some more weight for winter.  It’s kind of challenging to feed him llama feed and the goats goat feed and not have them eating each others’ food.

I also have Harley that I have to keep away from anyone who might jump on her.  Her back is still not good.

Then I have two extra little boys.

Anubis and Pluto

I’m pretty sure I already will give Harley a shot to make sure she doesn’t have any oopsie babies.

Harley and Pluto

Not that Pluto seems to have any interest, but Anubis might have it all figured out.  They are going to really miss each other when they are separated.

Pluto

I also am pretty sure I want to keep Antigone and Cupid where I can make sure they get enough to eat with all the big bullly goats I have. Plus I’m still hoping to get Cupid more tame.

Cupid

I think I finally have a plan for when I make the move to breed June kids here in a couple of weeks (we get out of school so late anymore).
