Doncha just love it when you're on time to the vet's own house, but he isn't?
Never know when to call the office to see what's up or if it's too early to call. Lol.

Had them looser, but they tangled and rolled...ugh.
Got them shorter now.
The biscuits are for stray dogs I find on the road...lol.

Update.
Vet was in a rush, so I didn't get a chance to ask about AI in sheep. I see a lot of posts asking about AI, so wanted info for the ram side of it.


In other news.
There's further madness brewing with the registries.
Yup, you guessed it. FOUR of them now! FFS!!

All I can say is, do not join BSSBA now.
Wait until BSR is settled and then decide what you want to do.
I just want to slap someone and then go scream in a corner. I paid lifetime for BSSBA, which luckily, is being transferred over to BSR, but having to repay to have sheep registered is absurd.
I'm hoping they sue and win.

Split the weaners from the failed first timers & moved the ewes in with the rest of the flock. Fuddy-Duddy & the last born eweling/mom also rejoined the flock.
Clefairy & her lamb were sleeping so deep, it took 30min for them to realize that everyone had left them. Lol

The drama of the 3rd/4th registry continues. I'm trying to keep it out of my FB groups until both parties have figured out their 💩!

In other news, Hoosiewhatser decided to sprain his leg. Pickup has been postponed a week & now we wait n hope to see the limp improve.

It's always something. Lol

If weather is decent, blood collecting is happening Monday & samples shipping out Tuesday. Never shipped liquid blood before. Hoping I don't F it up, as it'll be an expensive failure...

Forgot that Kookie, a Patchie triplet, was also leaving today.


And someone wants to see 4 ramlings today, too. Since I have so many rams, I've decided to let them come out n choose. So, I'll have to catch them...Hope they take one home!

Afterwards, a new to the area family came by.
The 4 they were originally interested in, but...

The fiber ram they ended up choosing for their fiber farm.

They also want a zebu baby when mine have one, lol.
And they'll be back next week to pick up a mini horse. She doesn't believe in hot wire, so I've decided to rehome her sooner rather than later. Just need to clear my horse trailer out & train her to load up.
