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.
Name ideas:
Killer (kills your ears)
Blood, Fire and Ice (Erinn's idea)
Brilliant One
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(
