Baby-palooza

9 Mar

Time to do an update of all the kids since Hilda had her babies.  I apologize for the bad pictures, but it’s been crazy getting them here.  When things quiet down, I promise I’ll share some better pictures.

Next was Mary on Tuesday morning.  She has three girls.

Mary and triplet girls

Then the vet came to pull two boys out of Victoria.  The first one was sideways and the second was trying to push him out.  I present–Squishy and T-bone.

Victoria and T-bone

Because the birth was so hard, her first little one was in pretty bad shape, so he’s in the house, but he is doing much better.  I will say, it’s the first time I’ve given kids names based on their birth.

Squishy

About an hour and a half later, Joani kept having kids.   She stopped at triplets–two boys and a girl.  You can see a video of the girl being born at the link below.

Joani’s buck (back) and doe

Her other boy was the last one, and he was quite large.  He had not muscles and was rubbing a raw line down his back leg trying to move around.  On top of that, he’s a pig, and Joani can’t feed all three, so he joined Squishy in the house.  He’s up and dancing all over the place now.

The next day, Bambi was my only one.  She had two girls and a boy.

We started well before dawn today with Haley’s twins (a boy and a girl).

Haleys’ doe (white one) and buck

They were quickly followed by Vixen’s twins (another boy and girl).

Early in the afternoon, I pulled one ginormous Sam boy out of Cinnamon.

Come on, Blaze!  I want to sleep all night!

I do hope you’ll come back to join me for Friday’s Hunt tomorrow.  This week’s list is at the top of my side bar.

Who’s Due

26 Feb

I can’t believe that my first spring break babies are due one week from today.  It will be a flurry of births.  Hilda is due on March 5.

Signs of Spring

22 Feb

We saw more record warm weather today.  It’s really looking like spring.  It’s normal to see kids with their maa out in pasture this time of year.

It’s not unusual for the chickens to start laying with the longer days.

I can see the sun set more to the west rather than in the southwest corner of the farm.

These are all pretty normal for this time of year.  But the grass is not supposed to be green.

The magnolia tree is not supposed to be getting ready to bloom.

The goats should not be losing their winter coats.

It makes me nervous for what the coming spring and summer will bring for weather.

I hope you’ll consider joining me for Friday’s Hunt.  I have this week’s items at the top of my side bar.
