The excitement is mounting here on the Green T, because our first ever kids are expected in 2 1/2 weeks! Jenny is getting really big around the middle and is more focused on eating than making sure Honey and Pinky stay off the spool. When we bred her to Eb back in October, we decided she actually wasn't bred because we saw no promising signs and later learned from a friend that Ebony might be to little, and thus need a platform. So we waited for her to go into heat again. This never happened and her belly and udder are getting bigger. Jenny is certainly pregnant. Here are some pictures. It is snowy out today.
Ebony seems to have toughened little Binky up. Whenever we put him with his sister in the doe pasture he gets all tough and tries to fight Jenny and Honey. Here are some pictures of Binky trying to fight Honey.
Here are some pictures of Binky and Ebony.
And here is one of Binky getting held. Binky just loves to be held.
Honey is now weaned and is best buds with Pinky. Unlike Binky, Pinky does not like to be held. Here are pictures of Honey and Pinky.
