Hilda and the Rest of the Goats at Gullringstorp
I am happy to report that the change in Hilda’s box has really made a difference! She is closer to her babies and therefore able to get their scent and the same for the babies. We have seen her sleeping closer to her babies and really attending to them as needed.
This is what it’s all about. Closeness and bonding. There is a lot of chatter between them now, which up until now, was absent. The babies seem much happier and are now playing with Hilda’s ears and trying to jump up on her. This all we wanted to see. I just hope it continues.
Let’s see what has been happening with the other goats at Gullringstorp:
Keriana and Alika have been moved to their own box next to the bucks. They used to live one with Frida and one with Hilda. Keriana took the separation much harder than Alika, but she has finally settled down.
They are not very big bucks. Balder is a Pygmy goat and is nearly full grown, Flynn is a Nigerian Dwarf goat that is nearly 2 years old who just never seemed to grow up.
Baby Boy is doing very well and we have had no more problems with him and the grass! We are happy about that. Our little Baby Boy is only 5 months old but his “bucky” ways are very evident. He can no longer be brought back in from the enclosure with all the girls. He has tried to mate with Keriana who is 4 times his size.
Pumpkin is not due until the first part of September, but we are keeping a close eye on her for any changes, just in case.
Every one is doing fine here at Gullringstorp. We are waiting now for Pumpkin to be ready to deliver her baby or babies. This will be Pumpkin’s first delivery.
Welcome back for updates on Hilda and Frida and their babies and Pumpkin’s progress.
