Cinderella has a flashy black dapple buckling and a mostly black doeling. I thought I would be able to get a break after her but Carmella's udder is filling up fast :/ so probably not

And my Tiny girl because I am stinking in love with her, here she is next to a average 8.6# kid. She is going great! Woke up this morning to a super active baby and she was very sad I kept her in a stall with just her bottle sister today instead of with everyone but I don't want her stepped on

And my little 4H girl came and got Cinderella's boy. I am very happy since he was SO ANNOYING lol we will see if she wants another bottle baby next year lol

Thank you ksalvagno. That means a lot.
Carmella's worthless and had a single doeling. I'm not sure what's up with my biggest girls giving me singles. Brats

Lol no she’s definitely not worthless but all the ones I thought would have a herd in there are the singles! Geeze their large behinds are not cheap to feed lol but her and Rosie did give me girls so all is forgiven.
Dumbo had a big eared bull calf. Gosh that girl is something else. I’ve been worried sick about her and she just stood there eating and pushing and had this shocked look on her face when something flopped out lol. It’s not a small calf either! But once she smelled it she went right to work cleaning him. It’s too dark for pictures but I will get one tomorrow. This guy is kinda a special dude. Last year we decided to try something new, we for years have always bought black angus bulls and only from 2 breeders. Dad decided to try something new, which the whole old cow boy set in his ways is the best way to explain him. He went up to some fancy bull sale, paid a LOT of money and got a simmental bull. This is Bobs very first calf. So we all have been excited to see this calf.

Lol good old bob. Joshua couldn’t remember Simmental and kept calling him the ox tail bull lol so it stuck and he’s ox tail bob lol that’s usually the idea of half these odd ball names come about around here. His bull he named ratchet, yeah say that out load, the first part being rat and that’s what we though he named him lol

Here's baby bob lol
Dumbo is not being a overly great mother. I think she might be a bit sore in her udder, defiantly sore from me getting those stupid plugs out last night! Gosh I have never seen plugs that hard to get out! I might have to get her in the chute and milk her down though, that might make everything easier for her.......also restock my colostrum.
On the goat front nothing so far, which is good because my my sisters goats also started kidding so if she runs into a issue I can run over and help her.

It’s a good thing he’s cute because he lacks some smarts lol or maybe he was a goat in his past life now that I think about it. I worked ALL day with him trying to show him there is 3 other teats to nurse from, it doesn’t HAVE to be that one. Nurse the others instead of crying. I’ll get him latched onto another teat and when he looses it he goes right back to his back teat. And Dumbo is being so good about it. And I learned today she is a total mamas girl! My uncle tried to help me when I needed to stand up straight for a minute and Dumbo said “I don’t know you! Don’t touch me!” Lol frustrating but funny. I love that night eared girl.
Jubillee cows are SO MUCH fun! Their size makes things harder then goats but it is so worth it. Do you know what kind your wanting?
