Very busy day, and hopefully productive.
Dad and I drove down to Irvine to pick up a couple meat pen bunnies that dad wanted for a trade deal he has going with a buddy of his. I'm giving Trishy a couple months off before breeding again.
We stuck to all does for now, these two are in with that satin mix that I picked up after being told it was a californian x new zealand cross(which she isn't, she won't get that big) These two does are in with that other mix doe as the first 3 to the meat pen trade.
They had one black, 4 whites and 1 smutty red there so I took a quick look over the little black doe. She's got good shoulders and a thick hindquarter so we shall see how she grows out. If she doesn't grow out decently, she'll go into the meat pen and I'll wait and find a good doe from a show. I'm still learning how to body type the New Zealands for the good large stock breeding body.
I got Aragorn ready for his 'hot date' tomorrow. Got his nails all clipped back so he doesn't hurt Rosie. He could smell where I had the meat pen does on the table before him. Oh he's ripping, and ready for her!!!
For the storms that flew past last night.
I took a trip to Sheri's to bring her the baby Holland Lop that her daughter had bought from me. The guys driveway is somewhere in there . . . Howard's Mill was a little high in water, as was the road down by Sheri's.
I was contemplating getting on Tessy for a ride, but I didn't want to dare and mess with the gusting wind. So maybe first thing in the morning if it's not raining and gusty out. I can't wait, I'm nervous, scared and thrilled all at once.
