Reva’s Kids

23 Mar

Can you guess what Reva has been enjoying?

Reva

She has a really dirty brown nose because she’s been rooting in the sweet lick bucket.  Silly girl. Her udder is not so fibrous anymore.  She is still getting a little bit of help with feeding her kids.  When Scooter sees me, he comes running.

Reva eating; Scooter on the run.

He does love his bottle.

Butterscotch is not far behind him.  They do enjoy their bottles, but they really aren’t drinking a lot.

Onyx still likes finishing the bottle off, but I think Victoria is making more milk now.

Ruby hardly drinks, but I still offer when she’s around.

Kidding So Far

10 Mar

Sunday night, I went out for my before bed check at about 10:30.  I immediately heard a kid and realized it was Reva lying in the middle of the barnyard.  I got out there just as she was standing up from having the second kid.  I grabbed a towel and scooped them up.  She followed me right through the milk room and soap room and into the south stall in the garage.

Reva and babies

They are both adorable.  The lighter one is a buck and the darker one is a doe.

Here she is all dried off the next day.

Monday, just about noon, Gidget had her twins–two boys!

They are handsome fellows!

I’m thinking that truly spotted mini-Gidget would be a great buck for someone.

Then Monday night when I went out for my before bed check, I asked Victoria if she was going to wait till morning.

Technically, I suppose 1:00 am is morning.

It’s not what I meant, but she managed to have her two little does just fine, and I got them moved to the garage where it is a little warmer.

Everyone is doing well!  So far, these are all Xerxes babies!

Just in time for me to add it to this post, Ava had her twins–a doe and a buck!

These two are probably my last Fionn babies.

I will also likely use one of them to help me make “The Perfect Kid.”

I am quite pleased with the way kidding is going so far this year.

I can’t believe we’re going into spring break this weekend.  I have nine girls due between March 10th and 13th.

Then there’s Mary.  She’s probably going to be due around March 15th, but that’s a guess since I didn’t plan her kids.
