I spoke too soon. I changed Leo's raddle to green on Tuesday and Jura has a green bum. She was tupped 16 days previous to that. If she holds this time, it actually give me a more compact lambing period than her first service and a better chance for the grass to come in, so it may be a blessing in disguise.

However, I'll be waiting anxiously in case others come back into season, which would indicate a problem with Leo, which wouldn't be good. Fingers crossed that Jura is a one-off.

Glad to see that you are in part of the house. Hang in there with the breeding. It will all come around. You are right to take both horns off. Had to do that a lot over the years of ranching. The snow is coming down here now. Winter has set in. You guys take care and have a great Thanksgiving!!
