Things have gotten a tad bit hectic around here the last 36 hours. It started off with Moana going into labor about lunch time on Saturday.
Moana x Cobalt resulted in 2 bucks and a doe kid (pictured in the middle). It was an easy kidding with zero sign of prolapse and she has LARGE orifices and soft udder texture. She is being an excellent mom.
Jasmine x Tide produced 2 bucks and 1 doe kid (doe kid is on the right) around 2:30 a.m. Sunday morning. This is her second year kidding and she has got this mom thing down pat.
Dusty x Cobalt produced 2 does and 1 buck around 7:30 this morning - just to change things up. And for a switch the doe kid was the first born. Dusty is a first freshener and our shortest doe. She wasn't sure quite what was going on and kept trying t sit like a dog during contractions. But she seems to have gotten the hang of things.
Lacey x Kingfisher resulted in 2 bucks and a doe kid. First born buck is very tiny, especially with the last born brother being so big! Her kids were still wet and barely standing when I took this picture. The tiny boy looks black in this picture but he is actually a dark chocolate. His sister (in the middle) does look like she is black with just two small spots on her back. Can't tell if they are moonspots or just white spots. These are our first kids out of Kingfisher!
Hopefully Cordellia and Violet will hold off on kidding long enough for us to get the other pens vacated. We usually keep babies and moms together for three days before we left them out with the whole herd to be sure the are well bonded.
