Nothing to report, baby-wise! :((

Hopefully soon though.
I'm not sure what is up with Haze, hopefully just this whole baby thing, but she is really off her game. Like it's not anything that is really super concerning, just she seems a little bit out of it and pretty disinterested in everything. She is still getting excited about food...when it appears, though so at least THAT's good.
She is drinking a lot of water (interesting fact, her teats have sort of softened up and it appears that she has a "double orifice"...I think? On one of them! IE, 2 holes for milk to come out on that side vs just one...weird girl! Haha) too but no more udder developement. It's very strange. It got "fluffier" over the weekend, then has seemed to shrink down, even from where it was before the weekend. Dear Hazel, your udder is not supposed to get SMALLER the closer you get to babies!!! Her teats are bigger+softer but udder=smaller. SO WEIRD.

For those who don't know (ie, everyone but Lockwood), Haze+Atti have been in yesterday+today, just in case Hazel decides to pop during the day. Hazel's been in her kidding stall and Atti has been in the bigger pen.

Anyway, I let them out for probably 30 minutes today just so they could do a little leg stretching. Hazel basically glued herself to my leg and "magically" ended up wherever I was standing. "Oh, you're grooming Lacey? I'm following you around that horse!" "Oh, you're putting hay out? Let me follow you from pile to pile, eating nothing, inspecting it ALL!"
Sort of like a cat that doesn't particularly want to be petted, just wants to be your buddy...

I'm thinking about just letting the two of them out tomorrow, barring any significant changes with Hazel. I'll be home around 3:30 or 4pm, vs 5:30pm, and it should be rainy tomorrow anyway=Haze will most likely stay in the barn.
Atticus is going a bit nutty(er) being stuck in all day and perhaps Hazel is acting "off" because she's depressed about being inside so much...
Of course, any major changes overnight tonight=sorry lady.

I did impress upon her the import of baby goat pictures and how my gentleman "friend" wants to visit them+meet the goats+how that's important to me so she had better pop something out asap...but I don't think that had much effect. She licked me and gave me this look like "patience, young grasshopper". It was ridiculous.

Currently, name choices (they've been "edited") are: Shalom Felicity for a girl (so hoping for a girl!!!!), Scribonia Falkora for a girl (gentleman friend+his best friend came up with that one, hahah), and Theophilus Cornelius for a boy.

I took some pictures, bad pictures, today/yesterday that I figured I would share. This thread has gone too long without pictures - one entire page, I think? Not ok.

Sunrise yesterday!

"It's raining. Where is my blanket?! I will wave my head at you until you blanket me!!!!"

(She had gone 6 WHOLE days without wearing a blanket even once!! SO proud of her! ...then it started raining today=lame. She has a blanket on now! Haha)

Absolutely terrible picture of the Sass Captain herself. AKA, "Baby Jail".

She looks super uncomfy to me... Everything about her is a-ok though so here's to hoping it's just babies that are making her "meh".

Speaking of which, she was finally getting "fat" last week...NOW she's skinny again. Ribs, backbone, the whole deal. Gah. Eat lard, woman! Justttt kidding.

That's all! :)

I checked on her 5 times a day over the weekend, got nearly zero homework/studying done right before babies. I feel cheated too! We can boycott Hazel together.

[and I seriously lol'd at "trying to get your goat" - thank you! :)]

I don't think ANYONE knows what to make of me at first. [half the time, I don't even know what to make of me! Hahaha]
Add "Conundrum Goat" and...well, I don't really blame them.

Today = just pictures. No babies yet! :(((

Come ON, Hazel!!

I'm beginning to wonder if Haze is just messing with us... I really don't want to think that but seriously. This is probably "goat code": make life as exciting as possible for as many people as possible!

I find this super funny: it's taken Lacey nearly a year of being in this pasture to be really comfy hanging out in the lower pasture. She hated it initially but now she finally seems to really enjoy it. It appears she even stood under the fir tree in said pasture to get out of the rain for a while, at some point today!!
Perhaps it's because "her" deer love the lower pasture... Who knows. Whatever the reason, she's cute. Haha

(I was standing under "her" fir tree to take these pictures)

"Hey you! Whatcha doin' under MY tree??!"

"This grass is pretty tasty...Also, I caked myself in mud, just for you!! Don't you LOVE it??"

"I'm coming under this tree too! Seems hip under here!"
[note the 2 deer in the background - OF COURSE. This horse and her deer! I never knew she loved them this much. I always knew she wasn't afraid of them like many horses are but I didn't know that she really adored them until she moved into this pasture last June!]
