There was a goat though, who had triplets. I arrived just as she dropped the third, but she was aspirating on amniotic fluid so I turned her upside down and cleared her mouth and nose. A weak little cough and she was gurgling and attempting to breath. She is the only little female goat born so far, but she has problems. She cannot use her back legs. She dragged the tops of them raw, so I made her some splints and gave her a coat. I did help her nurse from her mother and was going to milk the mother, but when I arrived to do so, she had dragged herself on her front legs and was nursing on her own. I have left her with her mother at this point, but the two brothers are much stronger and will likely push her away. I have a bottle ready just in case.
Celia had twin boys today too, two little bucklings. All the kids look like miniature Angoras with white coats and the typical round Angora kid head and curly coats. I was hoping for coloured babies, though so far, they have all been white because the colour and coat are so dominant. So, so far, Celia has twin bucklings, Taffy has a single buckling and Sherry has triplets, two boys and a girl, but the girl is crippled. I did give her a vitamin shot and looked for selenium and Vitamin E, but I am out. Tomorrow morning I will go to town early and pick some up, plus some more nipples, just in case.
Then Rosey had a little girl but lost her and Leda has twin boys and so does Red. It seems to be a boys year. I hope tomorrow is a better day for the little mothers. Bless you sheepies and goaties!
