    Well Patches had 3 bucklings!

    The first was a BIG boy weighing just under 9 lbs and he was born breech and rolled into a ball... I couldn't get him untangled and wiggled out for the longest time ( Patches is not a big doe) he was completely limp and gone by the time I got him out. I tried to revive him for about 15 minutes but he was gone. :( A beautiful, flashy, black and white moonspotted buckling and the only polled kid out of the bunch. :tears:

    However, she did have 2 other beautiful bucklings and they are doing well...full of spunk and sooooooooooooo darned cute. :)

    You did the best you could with the big buckling but I'm glad to hear that the other 2 are doing great & hopefully Patches is having a good recovery from the deliveries!

    Thank you everyone! Yes, the 2 that survived are quite cute and they already have their mommas wonderful personality. :) They are super friendly and already chase my kids (2 legged) around the pen. LOL Patches is doing great... she is such a good momma. :love:

    My goodness those are some big boys! But then again maybe I'm just used to seeing kids that are 3-5 lbs :wink:

    My kiddos are 6,4 and 2. :) My daughter does have the neatest hair coloring... she was born with so many natural highlights it's amazing. Lucky girl...you can't find that color in a bottle.... I know... I've tried! :slapfloor:
