Time to pull bucks off the does

These 100% New Zealand Kiko yearlings have been with a buck for 
the past month and a half. The buck (hiding in the rear) 
is an Onyx son 
owned by Rittenhouse Kikos. His dam is 
ECR Hanky Panky (Nick x JTV Queen).
I started pulling bucks out of the breeding pastures last weekend. The first group was this Onyx son and his girls. They had been in a small pasture since September and had no supplement (or any other attention) during that entire time. I ran the girls through the chute and checked their eyelids. Not a single doe needed deworming so I moved them into another pasture and put "HP" into a billy pen. He's done his job for the year (hopefully).
