Pistol’s Turn

12 Jun

When the whole herd is coming up from pasture and you see Pistol, who was due to kid yesterday, standing off by herself that generally means it’s time to have babies!


I finally got her up to the barnyard and in the Love Shack.

I was hoping to have an amazing series of birthing images (oops should have warned you about this one), but she quit pushing.

I think the baby was pressing on the nerve she had injured a couple of years ago.  When I pulled the first one, she went down.  Poor girl.  I was afraid I’d really hurt her, but she got up and started washing him off.  I pulled the second one.

I present to you her daughter, Astra.

And her son, Colt.

They are a pair of adorable Sam babies!

I hope you’ll come back to join me for Friday’s Hunt.  I have this week’s items listed at the top of the side bar.

    Those are really darling babies! Do they both have wattles? I’m sorry Pistol had some problems.

      They both have wattles. Minor problem. Everyone is fine. That’s why I am always here to help.

    Adorable! 🙂
    Am I seeing blue eyes on those babies?
    Are goats normally born with blue eyes and they darken, or is blue an anomaly (a super cute one, if so!)?

      Some goats have blue eyes. This is from the flash.
