Well kidding season is in full swing now! Babies being born mostly in the middle of the night makes for some pretty exhausted farmers but in the end it is all worth it! First was Millie, she had her babies a week early and unfortunately only one survived out of the four that she had. Heartbreaking for us but let me tell you the one little girl that did survive is an angel. Her name is Mollie and she is staying in the house with us until her mama starts getting around better. We take her out several times a day to visit her mama and to eat which makes Millie very happy.
Next comes Daisy! Daisy had beautiful twin girls. We decided to name them flower names like their mama, Shasta Daisy & Marigold. They are sweet as can be and up and bouncing around at just 2 days old. Sunday evening we realized these babies were having some problems nursing. We checked Daisy and her milk was not letting down properly for them She has a conjested udder that we are treating with hot compresses and massaging her udder. It has already helped some. We will continue this treatment for a few more days until milk is letting down like it should. Daisy is such a good girl. She trusts Tommy to do anything.
Next on the kidding schedule is Iris and Joy. They will be our last two for the season. So excited to see what they have. This will be both of these girls first time to kid. We expect Iris to have just one but we are fairly sure that Joy will at least have twins. Honestly we will not be surprised if she has triplets.
We will have several kids for sale in a couple months. They will be ready for their new homes once they are weaned. At this time we have Bocephus, Shasta and Marigold available. More will be available once Iris and Joy kid. If you are interested please send us a message. You can reserve with a deposit so you don't miss out on these sweethearts.
