Twin doe kids for Allie & Sunshine!

June 9, 2009

When we went out to give the bottle babies their mid-day feeding I noticed Allie was laying on her side in the kidding shed.   Told Bekah we better hurry and get the bottles given cause I thought Allie was going to be having babies soon.

Sure enough an hour later we had babies and Bekah and I got to watch the whole thing from start to finish.  And it was a good thing we were there.  The first sack didn’t break, and I could see the babies mouth moving so I broke the sack.   Beautiful color on baby #1 – lots of flash.

The sack broke on baby #2 but it got stuck with just its head out.   I snapped a couple of pictures and than realized that things were not progressing as they should.  Felt around and discovered that both front feet were back.   I carefully fished them around and out and then the rest of the delivery went smoothly.

"Hey - get me out of here!"

"Hey - get me out of here!"

I was so excited when I realized that baby #1 was a doe, and when I checked baby #2 I just couldn’t believe that we had another doe.   I checked both of them a second time just to be sure.  Momma and babies are all doing well and now we are left with the “chore” of picking out two more names that start with “R” for these lovely little ladies.
