    Well..she finally did it. Marcie, our ND doe (Capricopia's Marcia Mellow) kidded today (day 148-I think)...it was a difficult birth-the first kid was presenting with her back coming down the birth canal. With some help from Stacey Roop-we got them out-thinking we had lost one. The vet came to check her out afterward and we think all is well tonight...we have triplets, two :kidred: and a :kidblue: -they are precious, and hopefully will thrive...they are a little weak legged tonight (except the weak on which we brought inside for a short time)...I will post pics soon-it was a crazy day!

    Pics below:
    Hawks View Farm Bit-O-Honey (our temporary house guest)
    Hawks View Farm Almond Roca (we will retain)
    Bieber (buckling who will be wethered and already has a home)

    Re: Marcie kidded-FINALLY!

    Thanks guys-I really really want to get pics out here-and will do so-but we have brought our little girl back in as a bottle baby. She is doing VERY well today. We got some Selenium in her and FINALLY she has gotten her sucking reflex back-she just doesn't know what to do with her mama. She is a sweetie and we LOVe her-hopefully we can reintroduce her to her brother and sister and let her live out there with them in the next few days and just take her food to her. We'll see how that goes-this is our first bottle baby experience, so it is a trial and error type thing. Any advice is always welcome on that front...right now we are milking mama and supplementing with some cow milk from a neighboring dairy farm IF necessary...unpasteurized of course.
