This was a surprise for several reasons. First of all, the doe who had this one was the one i was sure had the longest to go before she was due going by size/udder development. Second, it was a surprise because when i checked the girls at 5am and gave them water no one had lost their ligaments, no one was standing posty, and no one had any discharge at all. So imagine my surprise when i went out at 6:30, 7am and found Rosemary with a single little buckling!! [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GdG3IuZBTpc"]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GdG3IuZBTpc[/ame] Even with the heat lamp he was a little shivery so I put a sweater on him and he toasted right up. he very quickly figured out how to get under the heat lamp. Rosemary is torn between trying to be a good mom and just being horrified by this thing that keeps following her around nibbling on her. She does not want to stand still to let him find the teat but once he latches on she stands really well for him to nurse for about a minute then fidgets away. I've been holding her still every half hour to hour so he can latch on and she is actually letting him nurse longer each time. he just got a full belly for the first time , he'd just been getting a few sips here and there prior to that. I did milk her out a little and give it to him myself with a syringe because at first he didn't seem to understand what he was looking for and that kicked his appetite into high gear. I'm kind of bummed I missed the delivery but am VERY excited to finally have my first kid! I love his colour, I hope I get a doe out of Sage this colour. His little ears are already as big as his daddy's ears, but clearly tiny compared to his mom's ears.
