On Wednesday Bulldog had a buck kid. Luckily Ray was there when she had him because she was screaming in pain and he had to pull the kid. Both mom and baby are doing fine. The buck is a colorful rascal and is really thrown out on all corners. Too young to tell much else but I like him so far. I knew since Bulldog went it meant that that Sadie and Cowlick would go soon as well. I was hopeful they would go while I was home this weekend but wasn't counting on it. In fact I was joking Sadie would kid after I left for my show. To my surprise when I went out to the farm, Sadie was acting weird. She was staying in the barn and didn't come out to meet me like usual. She finally came out and I saw her arch her back like she was having a contraction-but nothing streaming yet. So I gave her some privacy and went to work with my doe I'm showing Monday. I went back to check on er and she was no longer in the barn. I frantically searched for her and she was behind the building. Beside was the prettiest paint kid. I ran over to check, and yes it was a doe! She was still wet so I gave Sadie privacy to finish cleaning her off. Ray went out to see her and was surprised she only had one. I was so thrilled with the kid's coloring I didn't mind. A few minutes later I walked back over to check on Sadie and the kid. To my surprise there was another kid on the ground, still in the sack. I ran over and it was a traditional buck kid. I cleared his nose and mouth a let Sadie do the rest. I came back a few minutes later and that buck was already up and trying to nurse. The doe was still content to lay down. I moved Sadie and her kids into a sheltered run because it is supposed to storm tonight. Once they were confined-both kids were nursing vigorously. I'm happy with them. They have a lot of bone and seem to be fairly long. All these babies are off of a buck named Hammerhead-he's an RRD Hammertime (famous paint buck) son. Before we bred to him not many of his kids have had any color. So far we've had 3 out of 4 have color. If anyone has any name suggestions for Sadie's kids please throw them out. I'm thinking of calling the boy Jackhammer. Not sure about the doe yet. I'd like a name that's Hammer related though.
