    Little man is 9 for 9 on producing black and white kids (three had a tiny bit of tan but not much). Every single one. I’ll take even a dark brown at this point, but glad everyone seems healthy. Moonlight decided she didn’t want kids anymore after watching Ebony kid so she might be a little while (Moonlight’s ligaments must have been hiding when I thought they were gone). It took 2 hours of intense pushing for the first kid’s bubble to even show. The first one was breech with only tail showing at first and was crooked to where she had only one hip coming out so had to straighten her. I’ve never assisted that much out of all the births we’ve had. I was so scared lol. The next kid came out within minutes but was upside down with neck bent back. Third kid shot out in normal position. Was concerned after first kid could not get warm even under a heat lamp, but she is good now. Can’t wait to get fluffy pics of them!

    Aaww! Congratulations on your successful assistance and beautiful babies! I would have been soo scared! So glad all is well now!
    I have a question. When you have to assist, do you automatically give antibiotics to the mom (or something else?) or does it depend on the degree of assistance? Thanks

    Great job on the assist! It’s scary the first time but you did great.
    I can’t wait to see them all dry and fluffy. My buck Merlin last year was 9 out of 10 black kids too. I think black is a dominate gene or something, it is still next to impossible to tell all the kids apart looking out the window so we color coded their collars lol

    I was wondering the same thing about antibiotics. I have heard some say yes and others say not unless they show symptoms of infection. Curious to see opinions.

    My dad let Moonlight back into the pasture for 20 minutes while he was going to pick me up. We came back to her with a doeling and a buckling on the ground. No pictures for now, they’re filthy from being born in the dirt.
