WHen breedin time came we put tris in the purgatory pen up the hill. He and donatello have always lived together. Slick has lived in the purgatory pen cause he was too small to go in with the grown guys. So. Slick and D got to share digs and tris had his bachelor pad. Now that jade is bred and winter is here we put the boys in a permanent pen closer to the house instead of through the woods. Paul divided it with the galagher fence and everyone has their house and all the things. But they can see each other really well cause they are together but separate by that hot fence. Tris and D.... blubbed and spit and carried on until at least one this mornin. Slick had his say in the matter too lol! Oh! There is a gate, the only part that is not hot. So the gate is THE place to be. These goobers are now with red tinged noggins from beatin up the gate most of the night and so tired they cannot even be bothered to stand and fuss at each other right now. They are just layin down blubbin and spittin and carryin on Lol! Boys are dumb!

Mine are idiots too. All three have bloody noggins and I wonder if the hair will ever grow back. At least they’re doing a good job mashing their scurs off.

I was hoping they’d come out of rut soon now that the last doe we’re going to breed has been exposed, but then the doelings have all now started going into heat...

Wha...hooo
A goat rodeo this morning...sounds like fun ;)
I tried pool noodles on my hoop house and my dumb boys bit chunks out of them so make sure you totally cover them with duct tape or gorilla tape or they're worse than useless.
Have fun..Oh, make sure Paul videos your rodeo I could use a laugh LOL ;)
