    What a crazy, crazy night!

    Everyone doing good! The little guy is gaining his strength and his lil bent ear is standing up now. The big boy looks huge next to his sibs. Olivia is doing a great job, with help of course. Not the greatest pics. I dont think anyone was much into posing and the photographer (my daughter Heather) was very tired.

    What I thought was interesting is we got 3 patterns 2 of each and a boy/girl of each. They have some differences. enough to tell who is who. After Olivia had the big boy kid (he was last) She had what appeared to be another sack (the bubble) I thought Oh no. I bounced her and my mind was playing tricks on me. I called our neighbor who is a goat person too and she said it was OK probably not another kid. I was so scared. I had to help her with all of them, At one point 2 delivered together and I thought for sure I would loose one. Its pretty cool that they are all likely to survive. But it was such a stressfull experience. I wouldnt want to deliver that many at one time again. I would if I had too. But I think I probably aged 20 years last night from the stress. I was worried about my doe. Thank you for being there. This is a great group!!!!!

    OMG wow! They are gorgeous kids - and an amazing size for 6!!! Especially that massive one.

    I wonder actually, looking at them... is the big boy and the little one of the same colouring both boys?? Cause if so maybe they had TTTS! which is a thing human identical twins can get where one is getting way more of the nutrition than the other one - and causes one to get a lot bigger than the other... just a weird thought. It's called Twin to Twin Transfusion Syndrome.
