I thought it would be fun on this waiting for Gypsy to kid week that I have been having, to share my cool story, and hope other's will do the same.. Last spring, we had a couple few does bred and comming due soon, but as I usually do, I kept confusing Willa for Cessy and thinking Willa was due first. It was rainy and the goats can come and go as they please unless they are ready to kid, I put them in the kidding pen, also known to them as prison until they kid, then they love it! Well, needless to say, Willa and her fat and sassy self was hateing the kidding pen, begging to come out one morning when I went to feed, I swore Cessy wasn't due for two more weeks. Well, off in the corner, under a goatie stand (platform about two feet off the ground) and out of the corner of my eye, I saw what I thought was a little kitten. Mind you I had just woken up hadn't even had coffee yet so I was a bit grogged. I looked again, and there was Cessy, cleaning off babies. As I rushed over to collect the little beasts to put in the warm pen, there laid a wet what I thought to be dead baby. But....her ear moved......, I sprang to action, scooped up all the babies all four babies that is! What a surprize!! Put the two dry ones in the kidding pen for my daughter to look after, and ran inside with the maybe dead baby. The other cold baby I handed to Hannah who sat by the woodstove and warmed her up. I headed to the bathroom sink, filled it up with very warm water and went to work at warming that baby up. It must of been seconds, maybe two or three minutes, but it seemed like days went by very very slowly....I worked and worked at getting the little thing warmed up, (Shook her upside down, careful of her fragile body).. after using the bulb syringe a few times, rubbing and rubbing and rubbing, waiting and waiting for a breath..finally I breathed into her nose..nothing, another breath...nothing...I got a needle and used the acupuncture point between the nose and top lip, poking to the bone several times, and FINALLY there was a gasp!! She was alive!! She was alive, tears ran down my cheeks, oh I was about to give up as she did live and breathe!! YES!!! I kept her in the warm water a few more minutes, (that seemed like actual minutes that time) She then started breathing fine, and squacked...we milked a bit of colostrom from Cessy and syringed it to her..she stayed inside till we had her going real well, then took her to her Maa, who promptly rejected her...again and again. We did keep her with her siblings alot of the time, but she honestly became our little house goat. She just loved jumping all over my house!! Off the back of the couch was her favorite!! She weighed 10 ounces at birth, and is still itty bitty. I found a man looking for a pet for his wife, she had another house goat, and she would get what she needed from these nice people, so I fairly gave her away to a place she could be a pet, and not be expected to grow and reproduce.. I have pic's of her on my web site, she is on the first page in my hand... That's my story and I'm stickin' to it!! Hope you enjoyed my goat saving frantic making unexpected quads story... (Oh, Cessy had two boys, two girls..great babies all of them!!) Hope you share yours!
