FINALLY!!!!

My Reg. Nubian had babies today!!! Triplets for her 4th time!! We got pics from the very first of the hard labor. So consider yourself Warned!!! I did have to help a little because some of the legs didn't want to stay in position. but all in all she did well! 2 boys and a girl!!!

Here she is pushing but cant quite get baby to come out...Pushing some more...Helping out a little. Keeping hooves in line so baby can come out right.Here is buckling number #1!!!
And Buckling #2! I just really helped guide him to the ground and give a little tug he was big probably around 10 lbs.


Here he is all stretched out....
And the little doeling!!! She was off to the side a little and I had to help a little more with her.
And here she is again...
All 3 under the heat lamp with mom still cleaning!!
1st buckling.....2nd buckling...........Little doeling.. well I say little she was bigger than the first boy!! But smaller than the second. I went ahead and pulled her off mom to give mom a little break. She nursed 3 last year and is a great mom. But this would be her 4th set of triplets. She has had triplets every time she has kidded!
We still have 6 ewes to lamb. The one last goat to have babies isn't even looking pregnant really and I haven't been able to feel a baby. But she still has to the end of the month. So we will see.
It is suppose to be cold this week 32* is the high one day!! Yuck but not to much longer for cold weather... Anyone else ready for spring????
