Tomorrow is day 142 for Rita so today we let Mame' and her kids out into "general population" and got the kidding stall ready for the next round. And when my camera died after just taking a few pictures this morning, recharging the battery is right up there at the top of the to-do list along with making sure there are plenty of towels ready for drying off newborn kids.
We will be separating Mame's boys this afternoon and moving them into the house for at least a week so that neither she nor they can hear each other while they are transitioned to the bottle. After about a week they will go out to the extra kidding stall for a week or two before going on to their new home in mid April. Their dark haired sister will be joining them there when she is weaned at 10-12 weeks. I'm still not sure if I am going to retain the white doe kid whom we have named "Lavana" which means white in Hebrew.
Rita still has her ligaments, and while her udder looks HUGE she still isn't shiny tight yet so unless things change drastically over the next 8-9 hours I won't have to sleep in the barn tonight.
