Today we're bringing the "little boys", Blackjack, Barley & Buckley, down to the lower pen. Firstly, because Blackjack is just not holding his own very well against Spike & Archie, and secondly, because the little ones, Barley and Buckley, have "come of age".
Having no sons, I was not prepared for the trauma of watching my sweet boys turn into rutting, sex-obsessed playboys overnight. Granted, they are all still sweet, a trait not often found in bucks, but they are also trying to hump everything that moves. Men!
Bill caught Barley & Blue in the act - more than once. I don't know who I'm more disappointed in. Barley boy, that's your Auntie Blue! No-no! Not cool, man. Blue, dear, you are nine years his senior. Cougar behavior is not encouraged here in the Hollow. I hope that your new nickname, Mary Kay LaTourngeaut is punishment enough to discourage future dalliances with the babies.
Aside from the inappropriateness of it all, I'm a little worried for Blue if this pregnancy does take. She is a wee-bitty tiny lass, small even for a Nigerian, and Barley is a Mini-LaMancha, about twice the size of Blue when full grown. How big might this baby be? Not to mention that Blue is getting on in years. Fretting now...
