Here we go...

 
At 6:00 am when LN went to feed her animals she found babies.

 
She's alive just real tired from coming out 3rd and is still wet.
 
3 live healthy kids, 1" not done" (let's just say) kid still in sack but the size of a 6 wk old kitten
No picture, too graphic, I tossed that one with afterbirth cleanup.
It doesn't bother me because triplets are a struggle to nurse, quads are a nightmare.
Little #4 probably was pushed out and didn't get nutrients to develop correctly.
Nature and God takes care of regulating itself.
 
 
Hope to get better pic of him, he's huge and hollers greatly.
He was 1st and dry by time I got there.

 
Cutie #2 is wiped out too.
 
 
Mama just wanted to lay down after I cleaned up and moved her to heat lamp
which messes up pictures as well .

 
Ahem this is yearling that is not where she belongs.
She's standing outside on cement pad near driveway with no fences or gates.
Pain in butt Bonquisha or Quie-Quie (don't ask, LN did it) as she's nicknamed was upset
because I wouldn't let her inside while I cleaned up and moved new family.
She just let herself out of gate and came into barn from the other side.
 
This begins the season for me.
I'm choosing to put the past 2 deaths behind me.

  2. Three will be plenty for Mama Goat to take care of. Glad the three are healthy. And the mother, too. That's a lot of goat kids to carry around and then nurse. Funny how there often seems to be one of the newborns that is 'bout twice as big as the others.

    1. MamaPea I always think the big one stole something in the womb. Sometimes the smaller ones grow to be bigger than biggy which is always a stumper too.

  4. Trips are hard enough on the maaas, I can't imagine how tough quads would be. Sorry about the losses but glad everyone else is doing good!

    1. Candy C I am a ittle worried about her bag with them. 1 side is "blown" out at the bottom. I have been putting kids on it. I don't ever see them to it regularly though. Nanny is a tough girl, she has raised triplets before so here's hoping.
