We are tethering them out with a lead line and tposts each day, just as we do with the boys. They are enjoying having all the fresh weeds to eat, and it helps with my feed bill. The only time they get a little grain and hay is if it is raining and we can't let them out for the day. We don't have any shelter for them when they are tied out yet though, so on hot days, everyone goes back into their shelters for the hottest part of the day, and then they go back out for a few hours in the evening, before it gets dark.
The plan is to put Buttercup with Bubba in August, to get her bred, and then in October we will do Izzy. But Izzy may have had other plans. The other day while I was at work, her lead line came undone, and my son found her near the garden, within about 10 feet of Bubba. He doesn't think she went to him, but we aren't totally sure how long she was loose, so I have marked it on the calendar and will be keeping an eye out. I am just grateful she stayed on the property. And yes, my son got a lecture to keep a better eye on them.
Here is a sampling of last year's babies, so you can get an idea of what I get to look forward to (besides wonderful cheese and milk).
