    Based on my experiences yesterday, I have a disbudding tip..

    if you ever find yourself in a position to be disbudding 10 baby goats when you are 8plus months pregnant...








































    DONT!

    :lol

    I am so sore I can hardly WALK! I think it was the prolonged period of kneeling, pinning them between my knees...that plus bending over them...I didnt think being over 40 and pregnant could get more uncomfortable!

    Well, it is really hard for me to let go of control of disbuddding...it just worries me so. BUT I am getting there...I was so sick with the flu a few weeks ago that I let her and dh do a few. AND I am letting her do the kiddings with me there to watch...NEVER thought that the MIDWIFE would let THAT happen!

    Oh LA!

    I just did 1 at 7 months to show Becca... I agree... train Katie!!!!!!!

    Becca & Harold did great... we are going to train Isaac too...

    though the kneeling might be good practice... that is how Samuel was born...
