The Next Kids

13 Mar

After lunch, we had a lull in the babies.  The weather has been a bit crazy with one front after another passing through, so lots of girls look like they might be kidding, but then they settle back down.  It’s also why you get crappy cell phone pictures.  All the rain has added another level of crazy to everything.  I am grateful that I managed to scrounge and cut panels at the ice level and make enough pens.

I keep checking them and doing those everyday things that need to be done.  Checking goats and laughing at Dolly in the big tub is always fun.

One of those things everyday things today was running Hilda’s boy, Gouda, to the vet for a clip on each eye because they were entropion.

I’ve also started Blaze on an antibiotic because she has mastitis.  That also means I’m helping feed her boys.

When I went out about 6:30 Tuesday evening, I opened the door to the garage and immediately noticed that Bonnie had kids!

She has two little girls!

I love it when I just walk out and all the excitement is over and the kids are just getting ready to nurse.  It makes my job much easier. Although she does have one girl who is a bit weak, so I’m helping feed her while she gets stronger.

Then there’s Reva.  She went into labor late Wednesday morning.

It took forever, but I finally got a big boy pulled out of her.

These fat girls need to have two small ones, not one big one.  It would be easier for all of us.

    I really feel sorry for the goatie-girls! I know how it is for your first babe to be a big one! They surely do have some beautiful babies!

    And I got a big chuckle out of Dolly in the big tub!! – Thanks for sharing!

      This isn’t Reva’s first. It’s just that a single is usually bigger than twins. And she’s fat. That does not help either.
