Baby Boom

I have heard that a sign of intelligence is being able to delay gratification. I have never been very good at that. The plan was to breed my does in December so they kid in May. After my spring break. After I take a trip to California to see my kids. When the weather is warmer and the rain is warmer. But all the girls have been coming in heat. The bucks are crazy with desire. The does are crazy with desire. It is chaotic. So I open a gate here and there and say "go ahead if you want".
And they want.
We expect a baby explosion the end of March.
You know what they say about best laid plans? They go awry.
We've gone awry...but no one's complainin'

OH I know what you are going through!! I think I'm going to be lucky to postpone breeding another week or two. :) May babies does sound really good....but April isn't too bad is it?

Hi Wendy,

Ha ha - better you than me. My little episode of the heat cycle and testosterone about put me over the edge this summer!!

I hope to hold off until the end of November. Hope, hope, hope. Funny how it is that the girls become as much problem as the boys.
