Babies Are Here!

12 Mar

Yesterday after lunch, I checked the girls and had to wonder if Astra was in labor.  She was talking and kind of by herself, but Ava had been acting like that the day before.

An hour later, I went out to check her again, and she’d already had a baby!  It was just a couple minutes later when baby number two arrived.  She has two girls.

I’m so glad Aurora loves the little kids since she’s in with Astra.  Astra wasn’t quite so sure about Aurora sniffing her babies.  She would shake her head and try to bite Aurora’s ear, but now it’s all good.

Later in the day, I finished chores and went to check everyone again, and it was Blaze’s turn!

She has two boys.  I’m helping them nurse from one big teat, but they are getting it figured out.

When I went out to give Lily and Harley their meds, Hilda was walking across the barnyard, and she had a baby’s bag spurt.  Yeah.  I caught her and wrestled her in to the building and tied her up to pull one strapping buckling out of her.

Fat girls having fat kids means it’s not easy.  She could use a diet.

This morning, I noticed it looked like more girls were working on kids.  I got creative and made a couple more pens.

Cutie had her little girl right before lunch.

They are all doing well.  You’re caught up with kids as of noon on Monday!
