    That’s a good idea goofygoat! And I have a bunch of yarn. It will only be a few days late so it won’t stay on very long.
    Yeah I know salteylove I’m pretty sure I’m going to have to cull him but I will just be out more feed if he is no good. I wish I could just get him semen tested now and know the answer but I can’t. He was defiantly vocal and boy acting, which I think was half the reason why Snot was so bad. Sonny never shut up! So it’s not like he was a shy boy. I don’t know. I’ll get it figured out. Feeding one buck for another 7 months and giving him 1 or 2 girls to see if he’s good (if none of these have his kids) isn’t the end of the world. But I know my luck and I was so over the moon that I got his dam to settle when I AIed so that is working against me too lol

    Hey girl. I cant help but think the fires, the stress of fires being close. The awful smoke filled air had alot to do with the breeding. He is young, and been through alot of stress and fear. I know 7 months is a long time to feed a questionable buck. But with his bloodlines..it would only take 1 good kid to pay for that feeding. Can you image what 10 or 12 good kidds would bring?
    Chin up...you are doing great. I cant wait to see what happens in the next few days at your place. And very interested in the next 5 months.(highfive):oohlala::love:

    It could have been the smoke. I really don’t know but your right he is worth seeing if he is any good before I throw the towel in. Not like I have time to ship him now anyways so we will see what happens along the way.
    I FINALLY got everything ready for this show, I have to run to the feed store and get straw and my ear tags will be here tomorrow. Bootsie, who I’m watching first usually won’t let me within 10 feet of her and last night I was pushing her trying to her her up to check her and she just chewed her cud and told me to get lost lol this morning she let me feel her ligs, which are there, but she must be feeling pretty miserable to let me even touch her. I think Barbie is going to beat her though. I never got pictures but I will work on that today.

    Smoke is bad in many ways.

    I know I do this every year, but they sure don’t seem wide to me lol I was just REALLY looking at them and thinking I’m going to have a bunch of singles. I have learned I suck at predicting what they have so I’m ready for a million of them lol
    Moers I sure hope I have a bunch of good ones. I hope bootsie has a little girl. I’m going to keep that. She was Xenas first kidding so she is getting up there in age and I want my Xena line to keep going. I only have Bootsie and Hereford out of Xena and I don’t know how much of Herefords crap I can take before she goes and finds a new zip code :/ so it’s up to old Bootsie to keep it going.

    Thank you they are defiantly coming along. I’m sure they will wait until thanksgiving to kid. Not that I’m doing anything lol it will just be me and the kids but they don’t know that :p
    Jule had a bunch of mucus today. I don’t think it will be tonight but maybe she will show Bootsie what’s up. Jule is the one that bad the odd ball cow tongue feeling things in her and had to go to the vet to pull the kid last year. Hopefully whatever that was all came out and it will be a normal delivery.

    Thank you guys! I’m so happy it went smooth too. As long as it keeps it up I’ll be happy. Both of them were just bam one kid after another. Of course though this was after HOURS of baby talking.
    Oh I have more coming just hopefully not until tomorrow. My beautiful day turned cold and windy so I’ll be up all night making sure nothing that gets born will get chilled.

    It's always exciting to see the "attached a file" notification on your kidding thread! Hooray for a great winter kickoff! What are temps in your area right now?

    Aww thank you goofygoat! I’m not going to lie I had mixed feelings about kidding. I always love babies of course but I’ve had a few disheartening kidding seasons before and really was dreading another one. I hope I didn’t just jinx myself but today was a good start for sure.
    Ok salteylove I’m sure all you back East people will laugh at me lol but today was 59 and tonight will be 30. No that’s not terrible but we are supposed to get 40mph winds tonight. Again probably laughing at me, but that’s cold for us. But that wind just really chills the babies if they don’t get up and eat fast and for some reason these does have been on strike about their shelter unless it’s raining. I think they might not like the light I have in there that I turned on (shrug).
