My wife bred a ND doe Last summer. I told her No Kids are to be born between November and March15th. She said that the end of November isn't cold. I told her this is Montana not Texas. She bred her any way. My wife said she didn't like the mineral i have been feeding my goats and sheep. so she got special mineral for her goats. I told her that there was not enough selenium in it but she didn't care. My mineral was not mixed for goats. she is right it isn't mixed for goats or sheep ether. it is mixed for cows. and even though the copper is high my sheep do fine on it. Well this morning the temp was 14F with a wind of 10 mph that stopped about 10 am. by 1pm the temp had warmed up to a nice 15F. I was feeding the goats and i heard a kid cry. she had had three. one was still in the sack and has suffocated. and she had a doe and a buck that were up and nearly dry. I went in the house and told my wife that Cindy (the doe)had had her kids. but that was too easy. So told her that Cindy needed a bucked of warm molasses water. We always give molasses water to the new mothers My wife stopped working on the computer. thought for a bit and asked how many did she have. are they OK Its so cold out. I hesitated then informed her that one was born dead two were dry and had eaten BUT they were showing signs of selenium deficiency. Tonight i am doing a happy dance. My wife just told me No More Winter kids It is so rare that i am right. And my wife admits it. That i have to do a happy dance when it happens. .
