    Vet just came and got the second kid out. It was all 4 feet first and more deformed than the first. Stormy is resting, the second was definitely worse than the first.

    Thanks everyone, stormy is resting vet left me a a few shots of pain relief, I got her up and gave her a little grain, hay and bedded her pen. She seems ok, she is talking, looking for a baby and that just breaks my heart. Udder isn’t engorged but I’ll definitely keep an eye on it.

    Thanks for checking in, it really means a lot to me. Yesterday I was just emotionally exhausted I wasn’t sure how stormy was going to do but this morning I feel a lot better. So did chores this morning and stormy was slow to get up but did get up to come see me, she eating really well and looks better. She still really sore but I think she’ll be just fine.

    Its sad when they look for those little ones that dont make it. I wish that God created them to forget that emptiness.

When I go through emontinal warfare over.my goats. I forget some of the simple stuff. Take care..sending prayers!

    Since my last update wasn’t great to say the least here are the last of my preggie girls! These lovely ladies are due 2/2-2/14. 3 fullbloods and 2 purebreds all are bred to my fullblood blood red dapple buck. Fingers crossed everything goes well!

    Don’t mind the mess, we just had a blizzard, gotta love Iowa winters! Haha

    Thank you!!

    we have actually been pretty lucky this year when it comes to snow, this was our second blizzard this season. We got about 5-6 inches snow but I did have 5 foot drifts in front of my barn!
