Ok so I rarely post about my goats and my life with them (well except on my blog - link in my signature) but anyway I have a few minutes before my brother and I head out to clean out the pen. Last weekend my parents cut down like 20 trees and some of them were only partially alive (most were dead) and the goats love the pine branches but that leaves a ton of now deleafed branches filling up my already small pen. SO these must be removed so I can have my full pen back Trying to get does bred this year has been a struggle. First doe Lola took quite easily but after that its been just one headache after another. I have the pickiest goats ever! Both Sweet Pea and Ziva don't want the bucks i chose for them. Sadie wont stand for the buck no matter who he is. And I'm at my witts end. But last night I think I got one more bred. Today it looks like SP is back into heat though :angry: If I get these girls bred it will be a miracle truly. Today Lola left for her new home - which actually is her old home. Lola's breeder Lexi and Beth Mariolis sold her to me a couple years ago. Well actually Lexi sold her to me under the protest of her mother Beth. When Beth heard that i might be selling Lola she and I worked out a deal. So I cant wait till Lola kids because all the kids will still belong to me. Im hoping for a doe kid to retain. Lola is an awesome goat structurally but we never got along. I think Lola was sabotaging our relationship in hopes that she could go back to Beth. at every show Lola just LOVES Beth and Beth would be her handler for the show. And even today when Beth started to pet her she just leaned into her and closed her eyes and I thought she would fall over if Beth moved. They certainly have an attachment that boggles the mind. I am very pleased that they get to be back together again Well I am being told my brother is now waiting on me to clear out the pen so I must hop off the computer and go before I loose his help to remove teh big branches. Maybe my camera will work so I can get a couple pictures of the goats and our clearing progress.
