  2. Peach kidded a bit ago. 3 bucks.
    Laid down, bubble came and popped...and a brown tail and rump came out...(doh). Got in there and couldn't get the back legs up...husband went in and pulled out 2 white front legs...the head was tucked down to the side. Took a good hour to manipulate it up and out. Phew. Gave her some time, she wasn't getting the others out. Husband went back in, felt that brown little rump again and pulled both back legs. He was dead. I think his cord got severed while trying to maneuver them. Two feet popped out and he pulled those and the spotted buck came out.

    Peach doing ok, keeping a close eye on her. It was pretty hard on her. But she was cleaning and nursing her boys.

    I’m sorry you lost one of the boys. I’m so glad peach is ok though poor thing. That was a rough delivery for all of you.
    The two remaining boys are adorable. The white ones ears are so long, I’m used to nigie ears but those long ones are so cute!

    Lulu is in labor today! Early labor at the moment but progressing.

  8. Lulu kidded around noon today! Single doeling. Easy kidding. She is doing great and baby is doing well and gorgeous. Ears for DAYS and a little heart on her nose! I'm pretty positive Ruger is her sire but she will be tested for sure.

    We are all DONE, well, Until the end of March, we have lots of lambs coming, 6 ewes pregnant!

    They are all so beautiful! Congratulations to you and the moms!

    I notice you really give their rear ends a good shave. I did my girls today in preparation for kidding, but I didn't go any where near that much. Do you do that for sanitary reasons or is it something else?

    Lambs are fun! I have a friend that raises sheep... so far this spring they have over 20 lambs on the ground, with a few more ewes to go! I was actually there for a lambing. The 4th one was breech, thats how she knew it was a ram

  14. Yes...they tend to get the stuff in their hair and tail and it hardens and is so hard to clean out of the hair.
