I know...I’m sooo excited about the chocolate tri buck..his name is Ernesto..his lines are...stacked!! He comes on Thursday...I’ve already got his GF picked our..after quarantine, of course...Ooo, a chocolate tri! A holy grail for tri breeders. And that holland is too cute. I sure am glad rabbits make me sneeze and itch or I'd be breeding hollands.
Your DH looks like he really loves his piggers. So funny.
forgot to add...more kits born today...mini rex VM pair...more chicks..this was the only planned hatch!!. And this is one of our m8ni piglets Oh, and the waiting list grew again today..2 more people...can you even believe it???Got my new buns...no @Bruce .....just BUNNIES!. They are sooo darned cute! But of course the one, that the lady swore had been bred and had kindled this week..was NOT EVEN BRED! Hmmmm...ok, so, I’m finally starting to realize that...hmmm, some people lie? . Hate that....but, whatever, I’m still happy that I got my harlequin doe.
More news on the farm. i was pretty sure that my goat Brandy got bred in the back of the Saturn on the ride home when we bought her and the buck.... I know what you’re thinking @Bruce ...I’m sure there was some cheesy music on to set the mood. Anyways...I’ve been watching her grow....kind of knowing....yep...he got her...got my confirmation today as I was rubbing her belly on the stand....I had been drying her off...anyways...I felt this one...bump..then.....wait...them..yep, in a different spot, there it went again!! Not gas, nit the rumen..noooo where near..these were tiny hooves?! I swear I thought I was loosing it! It was the best!! So, until today, I really wasn’t in goat-momma gear....I was getting ready, but...I’m trying hard not to get excited...because I don’t want to get attached....well..that’s blown!!now I’m just praying they come out really homely so I don’t want to keep them. Fat chance on that! So, now the calculations, mean both girls are due on the 20th....15 days!! I’ve only got one stall up!! Told Chris today I definitely need another right away. Luckily, we just dismantled it all, so putting it back up, is easy, just a snap.
Oh, poor Marie met her fate yesterday. She actually didn’t have that much fat on her! Since he bought a 5th freezer, we still have freezer room to go to the discounted grocery store and stock back up on ice cream!
oh, here’s a real question for the goaties... @rachels.haven .. @B&B Happy goats .. @Mini Horses ... @chickens really ... @Jesusfreak101 ...anyone else?? If I bottle feed the kids...how soon can I sell the “ugly” ones? Only asking because my nephew is having an engagement party in Pgh on the 5th....soooooo, we have absolutey no one that I would trust to care for the kids while we run to this party for the day..,which means we take..4-5 kids along....not impossible, but...kind of rediculous.....especially since my family is very prissy.... anyways..the real question is...can I sell these kids..if they are homely...lol...at a few days-week old? I know if they stay with mom they have to be 8 weeks. I’m planning to bottle feed so I don’t get so attached. I cannot keep alll of the kids this year. I have ten....I can ONLY Keep 1-2...if tge very best does....and with planning to breed 8 does over the next say...7-8 months....I could potentially have 21 kids on th3 ground! No way!! I love my goaties..but I never want my farm so big tgat I can’t name my animals!
So, some advice on how fast I can sell would be great. I would kind of like to keep another buck...because a Ferdinand gets lonely even though he has other farm animals in with him.,he wants a goat. I’m not putting Willy, my wether In with Fred..because he’s my baby and I don’t want. To separate him from his family....itd be different if we had a new buck and that’s all he ever knew? At least I hope!?
ok, here are some pictures of Brandy..and of course my new bunnies!!View attachment 76696View attachment 76697View attachment 76698View attachment 76699View attachment 76700View attachment 76701
I've heard rumors they can do that in BrazilGot my new buns...no @Bruce
I'm thinking: It was nice of you to be watching the road so they had some privacy.I know what you’re thinking @Bruce
Oh, a bottle baby goat, what a great engagement gift!Only asking because my nephew is having an engagement party in Pgh on the 5th
OK, this I do not understand. Seems like a person would get MORE attached if they were hand feeding the babies rather than letting the mom do it mostly unseen out in the barn.I’m planning to bottle feed so I don’t get so attached.
