I wish I was talking about cows. Well, maybe Glory Bee is bred. She hasn’t gone into heat. But! I’m talking about goats now!
We were doing goat hooves last night in the barn, me and my hired men, and checking their udders to see who was bred. They’re all bred except Lizzie, the little short-eared Boer.
Chloe, giving Lizzie a hug.
Pat, pat, you were just too little this time, Lizzie.
With the switching around and rebuilding I’ve done with my goat herd, it’s been two years since I’ve had babies. I’m excited! These will all be straight Boers except for Maia, who will have Fainter-Boer crosses.
Maia will be delivering first. I think it will be sometime later this month or early March. I had the Boer girls shut up in the barn quite a bit last fall. They will be delivering maybe a month after Maia. It will be good weather for goat babies, by then. I hope!
Meanwhile, the cows….
….see them in the background here….are still doing NOTHING.
