Although it was a bit windier than previous days, the weather was still warm and sunny and the girls wandered out in the field for a short time. Quite a number of them were fluttering their eyelashes at the boys again - there are far too many hormones floating around at the moment! I have managed to get a few mated already but we will start in earnest tomorrow when my boy Daramac returns from his holiday in Margate.
Mac lives with another pedigree milking herd for most of the year to keep their stud male company and returns to his home for a few months to 'work' with our girls. Part of my day was spent sorting out the fencing for his area so that he will have plenty of room to relax with his harem of lovely ladies. He will have over a dozen goatlings living with him permanently as well as the odd milker coming to visit from time to time. I always think that our male goats have a great life!
I also managed to get a couple of photos of one of my little men with strange ears.
