One of our Ameraucana girls.
This is SugarPop. We actually brought him home the morning prior to SweetPea going into labor and had to have a C-section. Poor SugarPop got lost in all the commotion, but he is doing fine. Cahoot got a cold and was rejected by all other goats here. We made another trip to Kids Corral, 1) to get Cahoot some medicine, 2) to get the triplets disbudded, so 3) we brought home a wether that is approx Cahoot's age. SugarPop looks like his Daddy, Luzifer.
Now Cahoot is doing better.
MilkDud enjoys laying on his throne and looking out upon the land.
Yeah, give me the profile.
Update on SweetPea and her baby, Gabbi - after the drugs wore off, SweetPea wouldn't allow Gabbi to nurse her. We have to put SweetPea on the milkstand and hold her legs (I'm sure she is sore from the surgery) to let baby nurse. I have a pritchard nipple, but baby won't take a bottle. Goat people bottle feed kids all the time but I can't get Gabbi to take the bottle, so what is the secret? If we put another doe on the milkstand, she won't nurse from another Mama. Poor Mike runs out to the barn all through the night in the pouring rain (yes, still pouring the rain here) so Gabbi can nurse her Mama, then Mike has to go drive a truck during the day. He lets me sleep so I can get up and go to work. Mike is still getting the remainder of our stuff out of the house because the closing is tomorrow which reminds me, I need to go call the electric company. Oh, and the jury duty was cancelled thank goodness. In a room full of potential jurors, the clerk came in and said all the cases had been settled this week so we were relieved. Yeah.
