    Boggs Whitetail Ranch Penelope aka Princess Penny gave me mine and her first set of quads and started to deliver at 3pm...she waited til I got off work. She started with a Gold :kidred: then a tiny Red/Brown :kidred: then a tiny B/W roaned :kidblue: and finished with a pretty Red/White/Brown :kidred: Start to finish took her almost an hour to deliver all of them. They all have full bellies, mama has had some warm molasses water and fresh hay as well as a bit of extra grain, afterbirth has been delivered and they are all laying and sleeping.
    Kid order in the pic is almost right...the first doeling was actually the last born and the last one was the first born. 2nd doeling and the B/W buckling are in order :wink: 2 bigger does each weigh 3lbs, smaller kids are at 2lbs after full bellies.

    With luck and prayers I hope they all thrive with mama...with guidence from Steph who has Penny's parents and sisters, I'll supplement those that need it.
    Guess I can wait a few days before I decide who I will be retaining.

    That is some colorful duct tape...All of my horned does have "protection" on their horns to prevent them from hurting any of their herdmates or kids. They are tolerable if kids get rambunctious but can be a bit harsh when they reprimand. This prevents injuries.



    I am satisfied that these kid's are healthy...mama makes sure that each one gets under her, I just went and checked to be sure that each are eating...all have fat little bellies and are starting to jump around.

    Congrats on the quads. I am not so sure I want quads anymore. These triplets are kind of a pain but it has been a little fun. I would just like everyone to have twins.

    Thanks all! All 4 are doing great this morning, the 2 smallest have full bellies and were nursing when I gave Penny and the others breakfast. Little tiny buck is doing baby buck noises and all have pottied.
