I Need Milk

2 Apr

This is all the lotion I have made right now, so I need milk to restock.

That means I had to have a chat with Dolly about letting me have some of her milk.

After all, she and the kids had been out in pasture all day eating last year’s grass with a lot more green starting to mix in.

They wouldn’t starve.  So when I found Dolly and the triplets in the Love Shack just about dark, I kicked Dolly out and shut the door.

The kids were not happy.

Dolly was not happy.

Notice the head peeking over the door

It was very loud.

I did get some milk from her this morning though.  Another night of shutting them apart, and I’ll be able to make three batches of lotion.  Then I only need to do another three batches after that.

I hope you’ll come back to join me for Friday’s Hunt.  I have this week’s items listed at the top of my side bar.

Triplet Troubles

16 Mar

This is Gidget and her triplets.

Gidget, Gypsy, Johnny, and Jinx

Do we see a problem with this picture?

Blaze, Johnny, and Gypsy

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.

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.

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.

Fred

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.
