Busy, busy...

I have really been meaning to do a blog post since this morning, but been really busy.

About 4am this morning, I heard Willa down in the stall, screaming. So I taped Mom on the way down and sure enough, Willa was walking around her stall with a kid's head and one leg hanging out! The kid was making noise too (weird!). I tried quickly to find the other leg, but couldn't so just pulled him with one leg and his head. A little red buckling with blue eyes! A few minutes later she had a doeling that came out back-feet-first, also blue eyed. The doeling is 4.5 lbs and the buckling is probably around 5 lbs. Their sire is Dreamy-Hollow's HBH Lando. So, we dealt with all of that and went back to bed for a couple hours. Willa still looks like she could have had another in there. . . she is a little piglet and eats a lot!

Willa before she kidded!

the doeling,

the buckling,

After lunch we cleaned the doe barn out, which was big time due, as it's been over a month. Right when we were done with that, several hay customers showed up and we've been loading hay all afternoon. Then it was time to milk and now I am just getting sitting down ;).

The Cream Separator came yesterday. . . I'll post a pic or two of that in the next post.

Sounds like a really busy day! The babies are really cute! Blue eyes are so pretty. I have two little does born this spring that have partially blue eyes.
