I came home around 8:30. Brother said he had recently checked on Sweet pea and she was uncomfortable but nothing more. I said ok, let me just get changed catch up on TGS and GT and then I will head out and feed everyone and assess Sweet Pea’s condition. My grandmother comes in my room and says “I hear this crying like a kid outside” “yes grandmom we have Aspen’s kids they probably are just being noisy” “not sure stace, it doesn’t sound like them” “ok let me get changed and I will go out and see if she is kidding or whats up” Quickly change clothes, grab headlamp and run outside. I get near the pen and I hear Sweet Pea cry out in labor. Ok we on. “yes grandmom she is kidding, thanks” I yelled to my grandmom on her porch. I see that there is hooves in the sack coming out, ok good. SCREAM “whoa what is that?” Oh my she has a kid already. Throw a towel on her and start rubbing. Cute little thing, very tiny. Uh oh I see a nose but we aren’t making progress better clean it off. I break the bag and start cleaning the nose. Sweet pea moves and I have to move the kid (kitten) and my grandmother comes with help. I start pulling on the legs and more leg coems and more leg – what gives??? Why isn’t the nose coming out too. OH NO these are back legs! I tell my brother “pray really hard” I am not sure what to do, poor sweet pea is crying (though not as bad as she could be) I don’t’ think I can get two heads out at once. So I tried to find legs for the head I can see – no can do. Alright push head back in pull other legs….. GO ……. Pull and pull and pull and POP out comes kid number 2. Ok lets get this other one out. Ok hes out. Wonderful. Ah triplets – more then I wanted but that’s ok. Brother number 2 and grandmom have arrived with more towels. Keep cleaning and cleaning. See more contractions – ok she needs to get the afterbirth out no biggy. Trying to revive breach girl. Thrilled with 2 girls and 1 boy. What is that? more hooves??? Break sack and pull slightly with Sweet Peas push “plop” out comes kid number 4! Oh my gosh never expected 4! Hoped for twins but that was all. OH my oh my. Check – it’s a boy. Ok 2 boys and 2 girls. Decided to pull 2 – Kitten because of her condition (lethargic, not moving much, wouldn’t try to stand) and Presto (last buck) because he seemed very healthy and interested in nursing and I figured he was the best for bottle feedingn as he latched onto my finger before he was even dried off! Still touch and go with Kitten (named such because grandma said “oh she is so tiny almost like a little kitten” ) Presto is doing ok, not as I would like but it was a long hard day for everyone. Tomorrow should be better. Two with Sweet pea are doing ok. Hopefully by tomorrow nursing will be second nature to them. They are now in a kidding stall (my hay area) and seem to be doing well. Sweet pea is being a great mother and might have done ok with quads or triplets but I didn’t want to chance it.
