Sunshine Had Her BABIES!!

 3 BOYS!!.. I had to help pull #2 & 3. They came back feet first. Sunshine is having problems though. It almost looks like a hip is dislocated but she is using it and is walking okay.. Better than she was when she was carrying a full load of babies which by the way they were 8,8,& 7 pounds..  The only thing I know is when I was pulling baby #3 I heard a very Light pop in her hip area.
 She was getting anxious when the babies were out there and wouldn't let me milk. So the girls brought them inside and she calmed down. I gave her a few things to help and I hope she will rest some. I am taking them back out in the morning to see how things go..  She did let them nurse at first but had started pushing them away...
 Soo there is the latest.. I am going to go crash now after a little late night conversation...

I say this means spring is here! Well, okay, no not really...but I'm hopeful :) Those kids look huge. But I've been looking at my mom's wee little kids (LinderCroft) so maybe my judgment is a bit skewed ;)

What a miraculous addition! Well, three additions! :)

We had a Momma goat that had four babies and rejected them right after birth as well. We ended up bottle feeding them for a few days and keeping them indoors away from her. She just needed some space to recover, then took to the babies as if they had never been apart. Hope yours transition well back to Momma....and her hip! Poor thing, hopefully it's not dislocated. :(
