I know this is a "horse blog", but I'm going to briefly depart to share photos of our very pregnant Boer
goats. I don't think it translates as well in photos, but they are
MASSIVE. Like whoa. Every time I see them laying down, I wonder how
they're going to get up again. Boer goats have a gestation of about 5
months, so they are due basically any time in the next few weeks (the
male goat was with them for about 2 months, so we don't really have an
exact "due date").
are fat, happy, healthy (soon-to-be) momma goats. The little boy goat (Sam) has been
having some issues -- he's a bit anemic, so he has had to submit to
daily catching for shots and doses of Red Cell. I am not complaining,
because DH happily sprung for a big container of Red Cell, that I fully
intend to hijack for my horses when he's done ;) haha.
has been working on their shelter, to make it a little more substantial
for winter. It still needs some finishing touches, but hopefully it
will keep them nice and cozy! I promise to update ASAP as soon as I have
actual "kid" photos!
