|Sandy in labor, |
keeping warm under a wool blanket
|Sandy's doeling and buckling.|
Both are SOLD.
Here are Sandy's twins, just minutes old. A doeling and buckling. Had the white kid been the doeling, her name would be Snow White. However, he is a buckling so his name is Prince Charming. Her doeling is a brown buckskin with white splashes. Due to the white on her tail, I have named her Tipper. This is the only good picture of the doeling that I have been able to get. She is a spitfire ... always springing around and loving life, never posing for a picture. They are eligible for registration. Prince Charming is $125 as a bottle baby. Tipper is $200 as a bottle baby.
|AnnaBelle delivered 4 bucklings just before dawn |
without a human attendant (me!).
AnnaBelle was the next to kid on February 1st. She surprised me and kidded when I was not there, even though I had checked on her at midnight and she showed no signs of delivering soon. This is the first time I have not been there to catch every kid born on the farm. However, she did a great job and had them just about cleaned up by the time I arrived for morning chores. Her 4 bucklings are of good bloodlines, but not eligible for registration. $75 each as bottle babies.
