She was showing signs all morning that she was getting close, demanding massages, talking to her kids. Around 3:30pm she laid down and got a few good pushes in and I thought she was ready to go, but then she got up and started pacing and trying different positions, some I have never seen before. She wasn't anywhere close to be being fully dilated so chose to wait and see if she could get the kids shifted into position on her own.
He was followed fairly quickly by a properly presenting doe kid. At first glance she appeared to be black and white. But once she was dry we could see she was a very pretty tri-colored buckskin with white markings.
Tanya is an experienced mom and got right to work cleaning up her babies. The buck kid was born hungry and he lost no time in finding his feet and the teat without any assistance needed and his sister wasn't far behind.
Tanya's discharge didn't seem quite right to me and I was considering going in for a feel in case there was another kid (she has kidded with triplets every time) when a bubble appeared. But it was not a proper presentation in fact I have never seen anything quite like it. She was a large kid and all balled up and on the final push came popping out like a cannonball. She had defecated already, but we got her cleaned up and breathing okay and she quickly joined her siblings in nursing.
No names for either of the doe kids yet, but it will be related to some form of sweet or dessert as that is the theme my children wanted to have this year for naming.
