OK, my cute little buckling busted a hole in the fence and was happily munching hay with my does this morning. :O I guess I underestimated him, I mean he's what, 80 lbs? He broke the 2 x 4 wire, it looks like someone cut it and bent the wires up... So, we have 3 does already bred by him, no biggie, then we have Glori, the lamancha I just got bred to a lamancha buck of Nancy's Thursday, looks like he got her, so I get to genetics test if we get any does I want to sell out of her, huh? What's involved in that, price? Then the real troubles, I have Toggy, unbred Toggenburg who has been in heat the last couple of days, and I didn't want bred until Dec, and of course to a lovely TOGGENBURG buck. And Toggy's baby, Maybelle, who is only 4 months old, and 66 lbs. Obviously too small. I have never luted a doe before. Can I wait until the 21 days so I can send in blood on them? Should I lute the baby anyway, in case there would be some error on her blood test, since hers is so critical, I think so.. Although she doesnt' have any signs of being bred, I don't really think she's cycled yet. I know if they get farther into pregnancy it is harder on them? So what is kind of the cut tof date? So now I will be getting some cattle panels and we will have a double fence on the doe side. I had planned to do something here (to prevent breeding to through the fence that is), but goodness, I figured it would be a worry when he got bigger (his side is downhill). :blush Stupid me. I guess I've just never had a buck before (except for that one that was very subdued). Even my stallion (soon to be gelding) doesn't bust the fence to get to the mares across the street. But goats are more ornery.
