Backtracking ...

I need to backtrack a bit since we have been so swamped with kiddings and new babies I had no time to blog ! End of February was hectic - my friend broke her foot and I have been trying to help with errands, dr. appt and goats - don't even remember the details of Feb 29th, other than I made a meal for dinner, headed over there to help disbud and tatoo kids after dinner, my car batery was dead and I had to reload everything into the truck. My friend was gracious enough to follow me home to jump my battery since the truck had "check engine" light coming on for a while now. I made a quick check in the barn on the expecting girls (this is around 10:30pm now) and found Fern with a kid already on the ground and getting him cleaned up.
Scooped the kid up, hollared at the kids that Fern was in labor and to bring towells for the baby already born. Not a freezing cold night but a fairly chilly night still for a wet kid. The buckling was soon followed by a beautiful mahagony doeling with moonspots all over :)
Fern's udder is lovely, great capacity for a first freshener, great medial and teat placement and her skin texture is like butter and milk just falls out :) I have decided to retain her for now. She is in good flesh, recovered quickly from the kidding and is a champ on the milk stand. No issues with her whatsoever, she just stands there to be milked.
I  believe both the babies are sold as I write this, buckling going to a herd here in Oklahoma and doeling traveling a big further west :)
