Triplet Troubles

16 Mar

This is Gidget and her triplets.

Do we see a problem with this picture?

Blaze is letting Gidget’s kids nurse her.  Where are her kids?  They’re just over napping with Vixen’s babies.

What’s the result of her letting five kids nurse her?  There’s no place for her own baby to nurse.

Yep.  This is just so wrong.

Seriously.

I can’t believe she’s letting them all nurse.

At least Blaze’s twins are easy to give a bottle to.

I do hope you’ll come back tomorrow to join me for Friday’s Hunt.  This week’s items are at the top of my sidebar.

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.

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).

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.

Friday’s Hunt v3.9

3 Mar

Welcome back to Friday’s Hunt.  I want to thank everyone who joined in last week.  I had a lot of fun visiting everyone who linked up.  It’s very simple.  Anyone can participate.  The link opens at 7pm Central time and will close Sunday at 7pm, so you have plenty of time to enter.  Hopefully, you’ll be inspired to visit some of the other entries.

If you didn’t participate this week but would like to next week the topics will be:  Starts with J, Week’s Favorite, and bird or wings.   I will always keep a list of the items for the coming week in my sidebar at the top.  I am crazy busy with teaching and working on the farm right now, but I will make sure to visit all participants.  Without further ado, here’s my interpretations for the week.

Starts with I:  I’ve only had two goats that begin with the letter I–Indie and Isobelle.  I am sharing Indie, short for Miss Independent.  She was Maggie’s daughter.

Week’s Favorite:  I have all my spring break moms shut in the barnyard, and everyone else is on the back side of the barnyard.  It was actually surprisingly easy to get everyone where they belong.  Imagine that!  Let the babies arrive!  I am now on spring break!

Gidget

UPDATE:  I always do my Friday’s Hunt post on Thursday just in case something happens.  Well, this time something happened that is my week’s favorite.  Gidget (the goat I chose to put in my post last night) surprised me by having her kids a bit early.  That’s because she had triplets!  My first Xerxes kids!

Because she was so full, a couple of the kids have wonky legs, but they are already building their muscles up, and they’ll be perfectly fine in a few days.

Nose:  Nothing cuter than a puppy nose!
