Wednesday morning Aruba (Bar-Jon Hershey's Aruba, PB Alpine doe) kidded to a huge single buckling out of our LaMancha buck Ranger. . . wish I could have bred the Alpine does Alpine, but the Alpine buckling was being rather lame. Anyway, she didn't have much trouble with the kidding and the buckling is gorgeous (although he looks LaMancha, haha!). He was 9 1/2 pounds at birth.
And yes, he was a single. The small kid with him in the 2 pictures below is Tic-Tac, the 2 lb baby goat! 9 1/2 lbs is a WHOLE lot bigger than 2 lbs. But, in the photos, Tic-Tac, at a week and a half old, was almost 5 lbs ;).
Early Saturday afternoon Journey went into labor, and after a rough delivery - the kid (another huge kid) was trying to come out upside down. If she was smaller it sure would've been easier! Thankfully we finally got her out and all was well. I didn't weigh her but she had to have been about 10 lbs. And yup, she was a single also and out of the LaMancha buck. . . never again (although they are b-e-a-u-t-i-f-u-l kids), simply because the crossbreds are big and hard on the does and because... I prefer ears :).
And while I'm at it, how could I not put up a recent picture of Mr. Tic-Tac? He's so sweet!
I also haven't put up a picture of Roxy, my dog, lately either. She's recovered so well from being rescued and really looks like a different dog. She listens so well and is so sweet.
We've been getting so much RAIN lately it's quite crazy. Northeast Oklahoma has turned into a big lake! It's great for the ground though and makes everything so green... great! I went out today with some of my family and shopped, everything was flowing! We got out the normal way, but on the way home the bridge had overflowed and was going pretty good! So since we had the livestock trailer we decided to go around the long way and no risk getting pushed down stream :). We got lots of great pictures and videos. It was a blast!
Have a good night y'all!
