So it was relatively warm today, up to 49 degrees. So I decided it was time to wean the autumn babies from their heat. The goat kids had their heating pad removed. And the young chickens were moved to a larger pen without a heat lamp.
Tom is out delivering firewood so I did the rest of the animal chores too. I noticed Moll at the gate to Jocko’s field wagging her tail and peeing a lot. Dang! She is supposed to be pregnant by Shaun. Gotlands do not seem to get pregnant as readily as the Shetlands. Anyway, love is in the air so I move Moll into Jocko’s field. Hopefully he is tall enough for her.
Unrelated to the two kinds of heat above, I noticed Miss Smith decided to be fancy and jump from a spool into the hay feeder. I am not sure she considered the fact that as the hay is eaten and the level goes down that she may not be able to get out. So I hauled her out of there and moved the spool away.
