Mame had her babies!

March 21, 2009

Mame’ had triplets sometime early this morning.  I discovered them wet and cold on the ground when I went out to do chores.  One was already dead and one was quickly going down hill.  I rushed them inside, warmed them up with a blow drier and then held her and forced her to let them nurse.

I didn’t check the gender of the deceased baby, but the other two are bucklings.  Both are doing better, although I’m not sure that the smaller of the two is going to make it through the night.  Compared to his brother he is very weak and barely able to stand.  His brother on the other hand is literally bouncing off the walls, and is probably going to end up with the name Ricochet (Ricky for short).
