I just want to cry...and scream. I got a buck, who I liked very much. Still do. He is out of Jesta Farm Show Time Cedric and RW Dess-a-belle. Well for some reason he's not breeding my does, whether its something wrong with him or just really slow at maturing. (I am having the vet check him to see.) But he's my only nubian buck. The one my 3 girls were going to be bred to. Obviously they aren't getting bred to him. I cant afford breeding/boarding fees at the moment. (My mare screwed everything up by getting hurt Dec. 30th.) His previous owner is really nice and we worked something out for Hannah, if she comes back in heat... I either missed it or she is pregnant by my pygmy buck. So I wont have any purebred nubian babies this year. What am I gonna do with out floppy eared babies bouncing around the barn!?!?!?!?!? I'm not even going to bother with breeding the other two to the pygmy. I dont really want kinder kids. My main purpose was to get them milking for the shows, but by now I only have one show left so there's really no point in going through all the hassle of breeding them, them kidding, milking them, feeding the kids until i can get rid of them, just to show at one show. On a happier note, the two pygmys that I didnt think were pregnant are, and they are getting an udder. They are due sometime this month, with Feb. 6th being the last possible due date. They ran with the buck... So I wont be completely kidless this year. And I am being kept busy by my new pygmy herd sire that I got on saturday, he's 8 weeks old and on the bottle. SIGHS... :sniffle Oh well there's always next year.
