First kids from Tanya and first kids from High Tide. Three beautiful doelings all with blue eyes like their parents. The first born buckskin is very tiny, but she was born kicking so I have no concerns about her size. The last born was a bit of a surprise, as she came almost 30 minutes after the first two, and Tanya didn't appear to be big enough to have triplets. Babies and mom are all doing fine.
The following evening Tanya's older half sister Sweet Pea kidded for the second time, but it was our first kids out of "K". I was at ER with my dad, so my 12 yr old daughter midwifed the birth with the moral support of her dad. I was getting text updates at ER and was so excited when there was finally a doe kid after the two boys and then - surprise their was another girl! Quads!! Sweet Pea handled it like the trooper she is and she is being a great mom.
The boys will be available as bottle baby wethers next weekend. $100 each or $150 for the pair.
