Are there babies in there?

I have been noticing lately that there is some unusual looking bellies in the barn yard.

Dolly has rounded out and bag appears to be filling up.

Diana appears to also be filling a little bag and getting round.

Even Janet has more of bag than she has.

I had the bucks in with them in June so they could be due the 1st of November until the 19th of December. Not really my ideal time to be having kids, but with so many of my does not getting breed this spring I wanted to try to get some kids on the ground. I guess we will see how this works.

Spring days going by

Today was one of those beautiful spring days when I wanted to get a lot done. So I did. I started the day by taking Madelyn and Niece#2 to school early for Plyos and to leave for an FCCLA trip to the state convention. Upon my return, got the boys up and ready for breakfast and then off to do chores. Everybody, as usual, was up and running around anxiouxly awaiting me.

GInger on the Balance Beam. She’s getting big.

After chores, I decided to check up on our tummy growth. I think the earliest we will have any kids is after May 1st. Ugh.

Dolly maybe closer to June?

I think Scarlett will be the earliest.

Indi is putting on some weight. Maybe mid-May?

Button is also gaining. Hoping for mid-May.

Diana??? I can’t tell, so she moved back into the buck pen.

Tawny moved into to the buck pen also. They have both gained weight, but that maybe due to being put on full feed rather than actually being DUE!

Janet is my yearling, and I didn’t really want her breed, BUT…that tummy is looking like she might be. So she joins my early watch list with her momma Scarlett.

Of course my faithful follower was there the whole time.

After working on cleaning out the barn, running to the post office, bank, grocery store, gas station, and a bite to eat, I was back at it. I got the fence up and working across the road for the boys. I had hoped they would run and stretch their legs, but no. They barely picked up their heads to look at me. Needless to say they were pretty happy with their new arrangement.

Finally after cleaning out more of the barn and working on getting the mower started, Landon was ready to work with his rabbits.

We are working on leash training so we can try rabbit hopping this year. We even found a couple things to set up so George could try jumping them. He did ok, but was definitely more interested in the grass. Maybe next time. He really didn’t mind the leash and was very good for Landon. Piper even came and licked him a couple times! Over all it was a very productive spring day, and I am feeling it tonight. Think it it about time for bed.

Hope you enjoyed your day!

Success

On such a beautiful day, I decided it was time for the new little girls to meet the other little girls.

They loved it! They have been bouncing and jumping and climbing all day!

They smelled all over and taste tested everything.

So many things to look at!

I think that they are going to get along very well!
