Rosie went to freezer camp yesterday. There were tears. I couldn't be there. I helped DH bring the sheep in and left. Ungrateful little s**te, I so wanted to keep him. But he ignored the "come to Jesus" chats so many times, he got out on the road, broke through fences and lifted gates of their hinges, decimated our new tree lucern, they now look like chubba chup lolly pops, the ones that survived. And he was properly weathered so no testosterone excuse. He brought me so much joy, helped heal something broken inside, and I am so sad he is gone.... but also so relieved. My he be at peace, with his mumma and sister.
It's hard, but he was clearly one of those teenagers "here for a good time, not a long time".

claytonpaul: A bull was put on her herd Late Last May so she was expected to be due between May1 and August. They quoted me August so I wouldn't be disappointing by a late arrival.

alpacalexi: My mini jersey cow is pregnant, however the last couple days her udder has deflated. My vet saw her on the 23 and said delivery in a couple weeks Is there a reason for her deflating?

Trim: She probably aborted a while back. That happened to one of my animals. She was bagging up but within a short while of her "due date" she began to deflate. I had no idea what had happened. I was seriously bummed out.
