Around 2am this morning Bekah woke me up to tell me Pumpkin Pi was finally kidding. By the time I made it to the barn the big white boy was already getting cleaned up.
I stood back and watched my 11 year old daughter complete the kidding and finally sent her to bed around 3am when things were pretty much over.
The doeling, named Gretchen Wilson, is a very colorful little girl with lots of spunk. She was the first to figure out nursing, and by the time she was 2 hrs old she was trying to jump. She will be staying here on the ranch. Her brother, who has been nicknamed Lynch after Marshawn Lynch, will be available as a wether when weaned. Both of them have blue eyes.
In other news, on the 25th Even kidded with triplets out of Midnight. One beautiful doe and 2 handsome buck kids. I sold Eve this spring with a doe kid back so pretty miss Emmylou Harris will be coming here as a bottle baby this Friday. She the first doe out of Midnight carrying our herd name and we are very excited to see her.
Jane is a wife, mother, critter-wrangler and works full-time off the farm as well.
