Goats in heat
One of our goats, Geraldine, was in heat over the weekend. The other 2, Pinkie and Georgina, went into heat yesterday. We are not yet ready to send them to be mated. They had blood samples taken on Tuesday for testing for CAE and they won't be leaving the site until the results come through, probably next week. So they will be mated when they come back into heat in 3 weeks' time. Which means we will be busy between Christmas and New Year!
