Kidding: Round Two

I can’t believe we’re getting for the next round of kids.  The first group was quite challenging:  three does, six kids, three bottle babies, one nearly fatal illness.

Hi, I'm helping my human mommy.

I hope round two is a lot easier.

Today I put up a fence cattle panel to make a separate pen for Pam and Bambi.

Someday I might get things done so that I have a separate building with several birthing pens where nobody would have to share.  For now, this will seem to work.

The only problem is that Bambi and Pam are both little pampered princesses.  Try getting those personalities to get along.  It’s not easy.  They are both pretty far down in the pecking order, and you think they’d enjoy it being just the two of them.

Stormy says she’d be happy to go in and eat without some of the big ones getting pushy.

Pam is due March 21.

Pam Street

What? It's all baby fat. Really.

Bambi is due March 22.

Bambi Blackboer

I don't know what she's talking about. I'm the only princess here.

I hope these are a lot easier.  After all, these are the ones I planned!  They are our first Boeris babies.

    Pam has got to have at least twins in there. I love cattle panels, they are so versatile!

      I’m sure they do better when I’m not around to compete for the top princess spot. It’s not bad anyhow. I really hope they are easy and healthy. :-) We need it after round one.

    The birthing pen looks great. Crossing my fingers that these two princesses will have easy births (especially for the human!).

    They are just adorable! I will never tire of seeing such sweet faces!

    I hope things go much smoother this round. How is it you manage to get all your subjects to pose for you so nicely? I’m sure it isn’t ‘say cheese’… maybe ‘say Peanut’? :)

      Sorry you’re having problems commenting. Sometimes, it puts comments in spam, but I just take them back out. The girls do keep me busy.

    What characters they appear to be! In their “glamour” shots it’s just like they’re mourning their expanding waistlines. :-) Seems like you’re finding good solutions for the problems you encounter and don’t have time to fix permanently, like fenced maternity ward.

    How in the world do you do it all? It must definitely a 24 hour a day job. So glad the first group is getting along ok, and the ill baby is better. You only have a few days left before the next group arrives. Hope all goes well. genie

      Thanks. I’m sure Pam will do well. She’s a pro. It is Bambi’s first time. I hope she does well because she’s awfully stuck up except when I have food.

      This is the first group that I planned. Then we’ll have two more oopsies at the beginning of May. Then the majority will kid in June.

      Thanks. I don’t expect them to have any problems. I’m optimistic that we got all the difficulties out of the way with the first group. :-)
