I had a few minutes today while filling up anything that holds water for when the power goes out so figured I would get this thing going! I have a little over a month before kids start hitting the ground.
First are the boys. No recent pictures until they put some weight on. It's been a super weird year and they seem to be in even more rut the last month then they were with the ladies so they are distracted and not getting the TLC I'm attempting to give them.........seriously if I could live without bucks I would!
So first up is Snot......ok I already lied no recent pictures coming of him because I sold his stupid fence jumping butt!

Next is Lamar, my only boy who hasn't ticked me off this year lol

And a baby picture or Titan, I'm not sure why I can't find more recent pictures of him, I know I took some! He is 18 months old now

And my AI baby (who is on my list today!) Son of a Gun AKA Sonny who is now a year old.

I think I have all the ladies pictures. I'm not totally sure they all are bred just yet (seriously a very weird year!) so I might end up having two kidding seasons this year.
But first up is Bootsie bred for Snot due 11/25

I was thinking wow that's a lot less does!! Lol. They're all so pretty though.

And our bucks are rutting heavy too...they've got all kinds of extras to build weight and they ignore. I've been way to familiar with fence jumping bucks this season. Never before...what is up?? I was about to ban all bucks from this property HAHA. Now that everyone is bred, no more fence jumping BUT still rutty as can be. Sigh.

You have an alpaca??

Sally is looking oh so lovely! I forgive her for crushing your plastic balling gun :)

It was a my first year with my buck jumping fences too. No fun. I also have notes like this "if she kids this date, this buck, but this date, the other buck..." Not a simple estimated due dates calendar that I like to post on my fridge!

I have no idea what the issue is with the bucks this year but they are driving me nuts! Snot I think his issue was that Sonny was SO loud when one of his girls came into heat. Even then he went over and threw fencing and hot fence like it was nothing. It’s going to possibly be bad enough with the girls that might end up having commercial kids but if he got it in his head to go to all the other boys pens too that would really hurt. So he now lives where it’s welded pipe 6’ tall and doing great lol
Yes that is Tina the alpaca. She’s a good girl and probably the best $150 I ever spent. She is a scare crow but she loves her goats and really loves new borns. If she’s not with the herd I know that one has snuck off to kid because she sticks to them like glue.
Thank you everyone. I am sure hoping for a nice easy kidding. But it is 2020 so in a way I’m kinda dreading it as well to a degree.

Well it would make more sense that one would have a llama that could protect the goats and not a little alpaca lol but don’t ask her what she is she will tell you she’s a goat.
When I got her and the male (which was a total turd!) my husband was SO mad at me! He finally said I could keep them (yeah I was keeping anyways) as long as he could name her Tina. Since it would have solved a huge fight I let him name her Tina.
And that Sally! She may not be the thickest thing but she is by far the best goat we have. She is such a sweet heart and we all love her. Even my dad says the only one he likes is that two faced goat lol that’s why she didn’t get any lute. Her kids would probably be commercial anyways and I wasn’t going to risk her being able to have kids in any way.

Ok Godiva Jr is going to have kids 5 months from today lol I guess I’ll be having my 2 kidding seasons after all. It looks like missy might also be in heat but after dealing with that spoiled brat and getting her into a buck I had no more go in me. I don’t know how people hand breed. They are either tougher then I am or their goats are a lot better at leading then mine lol

Poor Rosie is always big lol she won’t fool me this year though. I thought for sure quads last year but only twins, that sneaky girl lol
Dakota is my soon to me 2 year old. I don’t know if you remember a nasty doe I had, Nutters, she was always over the top mean when she had kids and I waited 10 years for a doe kid out of her. Not that I necessarily liked her personality but she was a nice looking doe and the first decent quality doe I bought. Anyways she had twins (well actually triplets but one was DOA) and I pulled the little girl (Dakota) so she would t be mean like mom. She is the total opposite of her mother. I’m pretty sure she lives in lala land most of the time lol
Lol that alpaca is probably a total waste of feed but she makes me laugh just by the things she does. She has small man syndrome and it is so funny. I hear about how goats and alpacas shouldn’t be together because the goats will pick on the alpacas. That is not the case with her. She is not pushy but when she claims her spot at the feeder if anyone pushes on her she spits right in their face and they back off. She doesn’t like to be touched but I just adore the fuzz ball.
If I brought a pig home after the last ones I would probably have to find a new place to live. I keep telling the husband the kune kune are NOT like the last ones I had but he won’t go for it :/

Ok, so that's the nutters girl! Yes, I remember her....well Dakota is just plain adorable!
Poor Rosie a walking land whale again but still...ya never know ;) (trips this year I think)
I'm not allowed a pig either...lol ;) However, you might mention to hubby that kune kunes can help with the houses fireline and that might help...
