Wow what a week! Smiles, Joy, Stress, Worry - For those that need a count... we are up to 21 baby goats! That is TWENTY -ONE! And two more Mom's to be!
First off I just have to tell you... Hank is here to stay forever! The rule is boys have to go. He is part of Lucy's quads. And we were a bit worried about him at first. But he is doing great! Tiny still but GREAT! I was having to keep telling Hubby that he had to stay, he just had too much personality, and he kept telling me no.. all boys go. But this week.... Hank has won over Hubby :0) Now don't tell Hank - but he thinks he is a dog. He runs to us when we come in the pen, stands up on my leg and scratches at me until he is picked up and loved on :0) Man he is totally adorable!
Ok so lets see... new kids. Belle had her twins. George and Gracie! Belle is a first time Mom and she is doing great.
Then the next day Chloe went into labor and had her twins -
Then the next night Daisy went into labor - and man is this a lousy photo. Sorry. I took it with my phone and it was starting to get dark. And well Daisy is a bit of a nut and wouldn't stand still for nothing.
Look how pretty Vera is once cleaned up and pretty -
Oh but this one, she is super super friendly... and is just as small as Hank.. Olive Oyl - One of Paintbrushes babies.
This photo also cracked me up... Peggy and LuAnn - Lucy's girls... they have started to eat the alfalfa.
We had a real scare with Paintbrush this week. She got really sick, and a couple of days after having the babies, she wouldn't come out of their barn, wouldn't eat and well.. that made it hard to feed her kids. I got the vet out as quick as possible, we thought she was going to have to have surgery.. but after a while the Dr. was able to pull a still born baby. It was stuck way up in the birth canal. It was very traumatic, but I am VERY happy to report that Paintbrush is doing really well, and the babies are now eating and bouncing everywhere.
Then Miss Libbie -
Ok, so I have done way to many photos this week... but well.. it has been two weeks since Tuco I think so, there has to be one of him too -
If anyone locally needs a adorable puppy... Ammo, Tuco's brother isn't working out well at his new home, and I need to find another home for him. So shoot me an email if you need someone to love on -
HUGS have a great holiday weekend -
