The vet's just been to scan our two Shetland heifers and neither is in calf. We're so disappointed. We were pretty sure Blizzard wasn't but thought Breeze was - but no.

Just off to order more semen - they should come back into season next week, so we'll try again. I think I'm going to use Hengae Fearsome for one and select a different bull for the other - so as not to put all our eggs in one basket.

The vet says both heifers are fine as far as an internal exam can tell - all the bits in the right place and so on, and they are in good condition, so hopefully all will be well this time.

Blizzard is in season today, so have called the AI man. Not sure when he'll be here though.
