Cheerios, our last pregnant doe gave birth today. She had twins this time, both boys. She was such a good mommy– I checked on her around 2pm with no apparent activity. Dave found her at 4:30 in the pasture with 2 completely dried off babies. Much different than last year’s long, drawn out birth that we ended up assisting in (pulling with all my might) to deliver the humongous single she had. Twins are so much easier. On to the pictures….
Her babies are both tan-ish. We now have a total of 4 that are various shades of tan. I have given up trying to think of more names.
How are the other babies doing? I’m glad you asked! Here are the cousins…
The third one of Toffee’s triplets, Chex, we put to sleep this morning. The vet felt his joint problem was very serious. It seemed his joint sockets were not formed properly on his back half.
And now we are DONE with kidding! See you in about a month for the lambing show. 🙂
