Kidding Update

10 Jun

I was looking back to see who I last introduced, and I think I’ve been quite remiss in introducing the kids.  I’ve only been talking about the difficulties.  It has been difficult, but we also have some wonderful kids.  So, with the start of our May babies, I give to you:

May 10th Bonnie Blackboer had a Boeris baby.

Cocoa van de Yell


Helen had her twins, also Boeris babies, on May 11th.

The last of our early May Boeris kids arrived on May 15th.  Muffin had twin girls.

Annie surprised us with her babies arriving twelve days early on May 23.  It’s a miracle her little Marley boy survived.

Maggie had her kids a bit early on May 30th.  She had Boeris triplets.

After a short break, Kizzy kicked us off again with triplets on the morning of June 9th.  she has two bucks and a doe.  I think she lost about twenty-five pounds between kid, fluids, and placenta.

That afternoon, Cinnamon had our first ever Fionn baby.  He is a nice sized buck.
