hoses or noses? hehe

In the 5th picture to last, you will see a little blob on top of the leg that looks a bit like a growth - it's not, it's an ear. From these pictures you can only really see the underneath of the kids as they slide out.

The first thing I felt when I inserted my fingers was a hoof right at the entrance (previously in a big waterbag that I popped)

behind the hoof was a nose. I had to investigate a little further to find the second hoof as it was a bit further back.

I then took the first hoof and stretched it forward and from there helped Whissy to birth it out.

The second kid came with just 1 leg (the one I'm pulling) and the head (I held it behind the ears to help the kid out).

I didnt want to investigate to find the second leg as it was a big kid (9lb14oz) and would have hurt her more to do that.

Great photos. I'd love to get a series of photos of one of our births but I'm so often alone and making sure noses get cleaned and I'm like you, checking to see what's coming to ensure a kid doesn't get close so I tend not to get pics.

I don't have any of Daisie right before giving birth.....

But at 6:30 am - just standing around - couple contractions

9:30 am - little bit of goo and starts of pushing

10:20 am went out to feed and came back to this little boy that was still in sack, JUST came out



Cleaning him up with mom and she started pushing again

10:25 am



Next push she came out all at once!



after getting the sack off of her



Mom never attempted to clean her until after I had her cleaned up completely.

Wow! Those pics were very helpful! Thanks so much for sharing them. So, the kid came out even with the one hoof back? I always think that that's not possible but I've yet to pull a kid in that position, just done breech.

Awesome pics!!! Thanks for taking the time to post!! I wish I had someone to take pictures when those kind of things happen or even a by the book birth. I'm always waiting w/ a towel or have my hands checking out the doe so it's great you had someone there.

Those kids look real healthy by the way! Congrats!!!

Great pics... thanks so much.
If you are moving the babies to the mom's head, are you cutting the cords or are you just clamping them and waiting for the placentas to be delivered or what's happening?

Beautiful... EVERYONE!
