above is Rosie yesterday afternoon
Last night around 2am we got up and checked on Rosie, and sure enough, she was pushing! After a little while, she plopped out a huge buckling... haven't weighed him, but I'm guess he's a good 10 lbs. Their sire is our Boer buck, Ace. A little while later, she pushed out another *buckling* who came out back-feet first, which I think was easier since their heads and shoulders are so big! Here's a few photos!
this is a bad picture... I know... but I was really tired and hoping she'd get done quick!!
pushing! two feet!
the first buckling,
the second buckling, wrapped in pink...
The night before last, around 1am something, we were awoken to a screaming goat - again. The goat that was the first to knock off one of her horns, knocked her second one off - so now she is completely hornless! Woohoo!! She just has 2 scabs on top of her head, not bad at all! Then 2 of the others just have one horn left, and the last goat still has both. She is the biggest out of them all so I'd expect hers to take the longest.
And no babies yet from Miss Rhia. She's looking like she'll go soon though. . . hopefully soon enough so they can be on the same bottle schedule as these other kids are, but that's probably too much to hope for ;)!
Have a great day!
