Triplet Troubles

16 Mar

This is Gidget and her triplets.

Gidget, Gypsy, Johnny, and Jinx

Do we see a problem with this picture?

Blaze, Johnny, and Gypsy

Blaze is letting Gidget’s kids nurse her.  Where are her kids?  They’re just over napping with Vixen’s babies.

What’s the result of her letting five kids nurse her?  There’s no place for her own baby to nurse.

Yep.  This is just so wrong.


I can’t believe she’s letting them all nurse.

At least Blaze’s twins are easy to give a bottle to.

I do hope you’ll come back tomorrow to join me for Friday’s Hunt.  This week’s items are at the top of my sidebar.

    Out of milk or ‘dinner buckets’?

    If it isn’t one thing, they make up another for you!

    That seems very strange! Have you ever known this to happen before!

    That little one in the last picture is cute!

      Some goats are less vigilant about letting others nurse, but actually just allowing another kid to nurse is not that usual. Stormy let her sister’s kid nurse the first year they had babies.

    I assume this is usual for a goat to allow other kids to feed fromher.

      No. It really isn’t. Occasionally, I’ll have really close relatives let the other’s kid nurse, but most times they are pretty protective of their kids’ food source.

    I had a mama cat who had a litter of babies, and nursed hers and her daughter’s litter. She’d go from one box to the other.
