Babies, Babies, and More Babies!!

We have been quite busy here in the last week! We tried a new tactic this year with breeding our goats. Our goal was to have our mamas give birth all at different times. That way we always have a couple of goats to milk. Somehow several of our females got pregnant at the same time. So we have had 4, yes 4, mamas give birth in the last few days.

Unfortunately, our mama that had triplets is refusing to nurse 2 of the babies. We were finally able to let the male nurse if we held her still, but the runt she won’t even let near her. So we have been bottle feeding her. We had another mama give birth last night so we are working with her and the bottle fed baby with the hopes she will adopt the rejected baby. It is a possibility so our fingers are crossed!!
