Showdown at the Homestead Corral
We noticed Diva and Nitro were acting a little different. We decided it might just be "the time" so took the camera and went out to see. Even though Diva had been a mommy she had never did the act before. She had always went the artificial route. Diva didn't know what Nitro wanted to do even though she knew she wanted what Nitro had. It was a game of hot and cold going on out there. Diva would not stand still for Nitro and he was stressing out trying to get to her. I thought I could hold her so handed the camera to William and tried to help Nitro out by holding Diva. That didn't work too well and Nitro got even more eager. He then decided that there was too many males in the area and decided that William needed to go. Headbutting didn't work so he stood on his hind legs and let William know he was the king of that corral. William and I went outside the pen and nature finally took its course about a half hour later. Hopefully we will see babies in 5 months. Congratulations Nitro and Diva!!
