Yesterday morning it looked like Baby (Good Goats Baby Ruth) was going to kid. All day there wasn't much, and then we were watching something on the computer and I was checking on her every now and then, but nothing much - it looked like she was in early labor. I went out the next time (just a few minutes later) and she had just pushed a kid out! A beautiful red buckling. A few minutes later, she had a huge doeling - thankfully we didn't have to pull though, she came right out! I thought for sure she was a buckling before we "checked"!
Please discard the not-so-great haircuts (it was the first time I've sheared a llama) and them being dirty in these photos. . . they love to go in the pond, and then roll in the dirt.
Other than that, we've just been staying busy. I have cleaned up and been decorating/organizing the milk room the past few days. When it is all the way done (for now, something is always changing), I'll get some photos to share. There are still a few things I have to do in there and in the kidding stalls and freezer area too.
Oh, and for an update - Parker, the buck who had the cold, is totally back to normal. Dancer (with the barber pole worms) is also doing much better.
Have a good day,
