After marking the calendar starting in mid sept, I have been watching and seeing who is in heat and who was in heat, bred an who caught an who breed again.
Mocha has been seen to be bred each cycle but just keeps coming in, she is coming ten this year, I hoping its not a age related thing but this week, she was the very last ewe to come in and be bred again, I saw her bred by whiskey an by my backup ram, Horns, so I will either get late lambs with her or she will be a miss this year
The rest of the girls however have all appeared to have caught, no active breed in Nov-Dec, so at five months I should have first lambs feb-march. However having said that I often have one female that gives me Christmas or first week of jan lambs, and a few ewe did cycle an bred late aug and while its possible they were bred again in sept, they have not been seen to bred again.
I need to see this again and then….
Fresh milk in the house again!! YES
Juno the goat however is hanging out with her boyfriend happy as can be but no signs of a heat since he came, he is as relaxed as they come, a very good boy but I would love to see them get busy.
How is your flock breeding going, do you run your ram year round or do you plan your lambing? I have been loving a friends kids photos, he had late fall kids so cute.
