My broken chestnut doe is finally back on my good side.
I re-bred both does today. Acer was just as willing as last time, and I bred her to my broken red New Zealand buck Ichigo, who may or may not be her sibling. It was his first breeding, and he was pretty dramatic about it. It was amusing to watch. We'll see how their babies turn out.
Then I held my breath and put Cardamom in Turn's cage, expecting her to grumble and run around, like she usually does. She actually plopped right down and lifted for the breeding. I was amazed. Either I got the timing right, or the Raspberry Zinger tea really works!
I didn't bother checking either doe for color, beforehand. In hindsight it might have been a good idea, just for future reference. But they both got bred, with three good fall-offs, so that's all that really matters.
In 31 days, it will be popple time, once again!
