I was so frustrated one day with my Buck I called to have him sent off. The man called and said he would be unable to make it. He had an unexpected trip to Grand Junction but he would call when he was back. He never did. I wasn't planning to breed this buck again because of Chloe's cleft palate. I had some other little bucklings born with 4 nipples and I knew there must be something amiss with the buck's genetics although he does produce babies with beautiful fleece. Well...I thought and thought and finally arranged for the vet to come and wether him. I had done all the bucklings myself but this guy is HUGE! It also occurred to me he's family and I don't necessarily like everyone in my family either. The wethering went well for a 3 year old buck. The vet injected lidocaine to numb his scrotum and then proceeded. I did this with all my babies this year and it was a piece of cake. I'm not going to breed this year. I have a wide variety of colored fleeces and white fleeces and a market for all. I am going to miss kidding season and the arrival of little ones but I'll hop on here and share the joy when all of you kid.
