New Mommies and Babies go into the Large Enclosure for the First Time Part II


I know I promised to post about the mommies and babies yesterday , but yesterday was huckleberry’s surgery. He was castrated yesterday because he will remain at Gullringstorp and with his mother Poppy. I made a promise to my first goat Frida, that I would allow her to keep all her babies born here at Gullringstorp. Frida passed away July last year, but that promise still holds. Her daughters, Keriana, Poppy and Pansy will always have their babies with them. Little Huckleberry will not be one of our breeding bucks but remain with Poppy and the other does.

He is doing quite well after his procedure after a slow day yesterday. By the time the goats were brought back into the stable, last evening,  he was up and playing as usual. I will not be his friend for the next 7 days. He’s not going to like me at all.  I have to give him Penicillin injections every day for the next 7 days. This is to insure there is no infection after the procedure.

Today is a rainy day so no one is out in the enclosure. All are in and the babies are fussy because they really enjoy playing out in the enclosure. Hopefully it will be better tomorrow.

Here are the mommies and babies having a great time in the enclosure:
