We had a very busy day yesterday. We started baby watch at 9 with morning chores. As we were getting ready and waiting for here to kid the kids and I built a buck pen for the Nov. bucks. this involved chopping down a few small trees and limbing up a bunch of trees. The kids thought it was great fun. Also while we were waiting I noticed that two of our ff were in labor also. We ended up doing the doe shuffle and moved the older doe out and put a ff in. She kidded with 2 does. We got kids in tended to them and then the doe. DD stayed with the two other does as I feed the two younger children and then I went out and she ate. she came out and we put the other ff in the kidding pen. As soon as we got her there we hear the other doe start to push. So we did the doe swap again. This older doe I think would like to take all day to kid. Just enjoying all the attention. She finally had buck 1 but stoped with everything else so she could find any little bit of goo in the pen and clean it. DD kept checking on the other doe. I finally got tired of wait and went and looked for another kid.(this doe is big and has always had quad bucks) I found one but not the end I wanted, he was coming tail first. All I kept thinking about was Vicki's post on how to rearrange kids. I'm glad that I read it. so, buck 2 was delivered back feet first. She got sidetracked again so I went looking again. I found a small leg about the size of a pencil and another butt. DD decided to check on the other doe and she came back saying there was a baby already out. So I left the doe with her tangled mess and went and found one buckling by the door and one buckling in the middle of the stall. So we got themcleaned off and in a basket and then I had to clean up and go figure out the mess with the other doe. I finally got things straightend out and buck 3 was born. So now I had to go back and find out what that other thing was that I felt. At this point with my arm up to my elbow in her she decided to help and shot out a kid the size of a puppy. Fully formed and covered in hair and a doe. Shoot, her first doe. Any how, by the time we got all the does tended to and babies fed it was time to start evening chores. Needless to say bed didn't come until really late. I would have been lost with out my 9 yr DD. She was a life saver. Either she was cleaning pens, checking does, holding does for me, cleaning babies, feeding babies or milking does. There isn't anything that girl can't do. ( Can you tell I"m a proud mama :biggrin) So out come for the day was 5 bucks / 2 does. I guess Camille is keeping all the girls at her house. But buck or doe our buck is putting some nice babies on the ground. Thanks for letting me share the day with you and thank you Vicki for that post.
