Pistol’s Turn

12 Jun

When the whole herd is coming up from pasture and you see Pistol, who was due to kid yesterday, standing off by herself that generally means it’s time to have babies!

I finally got her up to the barnyard and in the Love Shack.

I was hoping to have an amazing series of birthing images (oops should have warned you about this one), but she quit pushing.

I think the baby was pressing on the nerve she had injured a couple of years ago.  When I pulled the first one, she went down.  Poor girl.  I was afraid I’d really hurt her, but she got up and started washing him off.  I pulled the second one.

I present to you her daughter, Astra.

And her son, Colt.

They are a pair of adorable Sam babies!

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

Fully Baked and Out of the Oven

10 Jun

Cookie’s official due date was this coming Tuesday.  I didn’t think she was going to make it that long because she’s huge.  I’ve never seen her look so big before.

This afternoon her timer went off and the babies were done.  She had a hard time getting the first one here.  He’s awfully big, but we finally got him out.

Buckling No. 1

Her second boy was a lot easier.  They are both doing well.  So is Cookie Mom.

That just leaves me three more goats to have kids this year–twin sisters, Pistol and Vinnie.

And Pistol’s girl, Clover.

I’m ready for all the kids to be safely here.

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.
