I'm really not doing a good job keeping up with the blog!!
About 1:30 in the morning on Thursday the Boer doe had twins. Boy and a girl. Took lots of work and she can feed one kid on one side of that dreadful udder. She tries to be a good mother, but wont stand still to let the kid nurse unless I make her. The buck kid is being bottle raised in the house. He's the one we're keeping. Doe and doe kid go back to the owner.
Killer (kills your ears)
Blood, Fire and Ice (Erinn's idea)
So, you can tell by these suggestions that he is LOUD and a slow learner.
Yesterday we went to town, and stopped to check on Oatie. She barely even looked pregnant. Ligaments were not at all loose, no udder development, etc. I couldnt feel kids either. Then, today she kidded! Just a single buck kid, but it sounds like it went well. If the kid would nurse on his own maybe Karen could get some rest!! I'm so sorry she didn't have a couple nice little girls... :o(
