SkyLark and Stormy are both Due January 15th. I'm hoping for babies as always, maybe this time SkyLark won't disappoint me. I have also bred 2 Dutch does to my new Black buck, Both Millie and Cupcake are expecting early in February.
Other than that, not a whole lot else going on. Winter is fairly mild this year, Although Ellie and her babies are still in the house, and Skylark will be brought inside when her turn comes. First time moms are usually unpredictable and I like to keep a warm environment in case she might lay them all over the cage floor. Ellie was so good, she put hers right where they belonged, I just woke up, and checked, and there they were!
The first show of 2016 is scheduled for February 27th, in Mt Vernon MO. A little closer to home than Sedalia, and I'm really hoping for better weather than last year. Last year this show was during the big MO blizzard, even though I still went, I'd rather have less concern about the road this year. Ellie's babies will make their Debut on the showtable, at almost 12 weeks old. I have already selected names, they will be announced in my next blog post!
HAPPY NEW YEAR! 2016!
Check back again for another update, hopefully soon!
