    Thanks very interesting read the plight of adolescent bucks was as well. He definitely seems to have a low libido which would possibly signal a selenium deficiency and I'd never heard of timothy hay possibly containing a high amount of estrogen and this year I am feeding a timothy mix when I usually feed an alfalfa/ grass mix from another seller. I suppose I may have to dig to the back and pull out the alfalfa/ grass bales I bought. I started replamin back up today and I found the right now minerals at the feed store they love it and everyone seems to be scarfing it down so maybe that'll help as well they hated the wind and rain I've been using

    Thinking I'll be retesting some girls in case they were bred a bit later or we happened to get a messed up test. Herd queen Esther has gotten in your face lovey over the last week. Very odd because I've barely been able to touch her since I bought her. And my daughter's impossible to put weight on lamancha is suddenly getting fat? We dried her off in June to attempt to put weight on her for fair daily grain ran a feval and she never fattened up now on straight hay she's finally getting a nice little belly started. And some pictures of the girls. Violet is confirmed bred I am excited about her kids she's out of an Able acres buck and Jack is mainly Able Acres so I can't wait to see what they produce. Then the other rolly polly's at this point they're going to need to go on a diet if they don't get bred. Of course no one's shown any signs of heat

    25 days since I drew blood and the only one that's shown any signs of being in heat is herd queen Esther she has a tiny bit of clear discharge today. Guess I'll be drawing blood again maybe I'll get lucky and a few more are bred. I'm giving him until after Christmas then I'll be leasing or buying another buck.

    Mailed off blood on 7 does yesterday hoping Jack gave me a Christmas gift of at least a couple more bred does! Esther's still the only one that's shown any signs of maybe a heat but I went ahead and pulled blood on her as well. The 8th wasn't cooperating and my fingers were frozen by then so I gave up. Violets now nearing 9 weeks and is definitely starting to plump up :)

    Well not the results I wanted. Herd queen Esther is a recheck and the rest open though Garden & Daisy are just below a recheck so I suppose I'll go ahead and mail blood in from them with Esther in a few weeks. Jack seemed to be showing some interest Scampi today so I'll be testing everyone else again in a month. At this rate I should have invested in the ultrasound machine I wanted to get this summer.

    Geez girl. Thats awful. Im so sorry. Its hard to understand. I guess you need to purchase an ultra sound. I do know @AndersonRanch has an ultrasound machine. In fact she is on her second one. She has a lot of knowledge to help you out. Give her a hollar if you decide to get one. Oh and @CountyLineAcres does also she is really nice & knowledgeable also.

    I suspect that by the time I'm done paying for pregnancy tests this year my husband will agree to investing in the ultrasound lol. I'm kind of hopeful about Esther she started getting super friendly about 2 weeks ago so just maybe she is bred but early. If he managed to breed her he should at some point mange to get the rest.
