I was so excited when I discovered two of my LaManchas that I wanted to AI were in heat. Especially Lynnhaven NYM Classic Coco. But Coco had different ideas. Everything was wonderful until I touched her tail. I did not know she knew so many tap dance moves. I could see this wasn't going to work solo and hubby was gone to a playday in town to watch his great nephews. So off to plan B. I put her in the pen out front with Lynnhaven Spirit of Texas. Coco headed straight for Toggie Boy whose pen shares a 16 foot length of fencing with Spirit. No Coco. I want purebred LaMancha babies this year.
If all else fails, sticking your head inside a roll of hay will makes things better. Eating will ease the disappointment of no Toggie Boy.
Finally Spirit of Texas has entered the picture. He is sneaking up on her as he is well aware of her personality!!!
To make things worse, I looked at my breeding calendar and she will kid the first day of the Houston Livestock Show. Nooooo!! Looks like I will lute her the weekend before the Houston Show. I don't want to miss the birth of Coco X Spirit kids.
I work part time as well as raise and show dairy goats and make and sell goat milk soaps and lotions. My life is BUSY!!
