What was I thinking?
No, I need H names for Pygora kids this year.
And now we need three -- for two bucklings and a doeling.
Amelia had twins last night. A little white mini-me and a beautiful black and silver buckling. Both are doing well.
Fortunately, Amelia was already in labor when I went out to feed the ponies at 10. Otherwise, I probably would have missed it and they might not have made it.
Amelia -- miserable, unhappy, first time mom -- walked away from both the minute they hit the ground. She wouldn't even sniff them. She seemed as much in shock as anything.
I stuck around for hours, slowing cranking the bottle baby machinery into full gear while keeping an eye on Amelia. This morning she seems to be coming back to herself, eating and moving around, but still not interested in the babies.
She's got a serious bag though, so the current plan is to milk milk milk her and keep trying to get her to take the babies. I won't be giving up easily. We'll see which of us is more stubborn.
And that's it for baby goats.
Pretty sure anyway.
