I have no pictures tonight I just don't have the energy.. We had a heartbreaking day...
We had to put down one of the Goat mommas having a baby.. It was coming wrong and she wasn't dilating and her hips weren't letting the baby through no matter how hard i tried to rearrange the baby. I tried for 3 hours before I finally gave up completely exhausted and shaky. She was in extreme pain. I put her down and then opened her up to see if there was another baby. So I could possibly save it but it was just one huge buckling probably at least 12 lbs. He had been dead for a while..
There is much more to this story but I am not going into all of it.. I just want to say that if you raise animals to sell please be a responsible breeder and only sell those that you want to keep yourself!! It is indeed humane and responsible to Not pass on less than desirable traits or to sell good specimens to people who are new to the type of animal. Not a real happy blog post and I am sorry for it..
We did have one bright spot today A first freshener had a little girl with almost no effort!! I will post pics tomorrow and hopefully we will have more babies. We are starting to wind down this kidding and lambing season.
Have a good night all!!
