It wasn't raining this morning so I took little Mo outside with me to do chores. He is so much fun to watch and he sticks pretty close to me. When we got close to the doe pen I noticed that the new doe Tsunami was acting like she was in heat, even though she was supposed to be bred. The closer Mo got the more interested she got. Apparently he's got the mojo at less than two weeks old.
I finished chores and then took Tsunami over to see if the bucks agreed with me - they did. But she was more interested in Rio than Sunshine. I had other plans and attempted to segregate the bucks like I always do, but our wether Stormy decided to get in on the act too, and when push came to shove all three boys escaped along with a few chickens and the chase was on.
Tsunami took off running back to the doe pasture with the boys in hot pursuit. Rio was faster and wasted no time when he caught up to her. Sunny was still trying to do a little sweet talking when I caught him and took him back to the buck pen.
So far my luck with getting bred does hasn't been very good. If I come out and find Mystery in heat in a couple of weeks the failure rate will be 100%. I really hope that doesn't happen or almost all of this years kids will be out of Rio.
What a way to start the day off, but at least it wasn't raining....
