Yesterday was a long day. It started at 5:30 with a doeling being born, and ended at 1am with twin kids being born. In between that, 2 sheep lambed and a 3rd doe had kids - twin doelings.
The first kid that was born is named "Trauma", and there is a reason for that. We found her at 5:30am and she had just been born. I took her away from her mom (as usual with bottle kids) but we quickly noticed something was not right with her. Her neck was turned to one side and could not turn the other way. Long story short, she was not able to stand on her own or walk at all yesterday. I carried her almost everywhere with me. Good thing was that she had a great appetite and was very sweet ;). Today she can stand on her own and is even walking a few steps at a time, although she is still pretty wobbly. I gave her a shot of BoSe this morning, so I'm sure that helped some.
And you might ask why her name is "Trauma"? Well, her mom's name is Drama Queen, so we figured this kid's name would be Drama's Trauma :). Nonetheless, this doeling is spoiled rotten right now.
me and little miss Trauma,
My little sister is a very much up-and-coming photographer. She takes almost all the pictures around here and does a great job at it (I think). It is a beautiful day out today, and an awesome day to take pictures. So, several of the baby goats had their photos taken. Here's a few from the bunch.
Hope you all are having a great weekend!!
