Babies In the Barn

We grabbed the twins in an old t-shirt and towel and brought their moist bodies to the barn. Layla was a little confused and didn't know to follow. Dave had to show her a bowl of corn to get her in.
More cleaning by the humans and then Layla got the kids warmed up. We tied off and cut the umbilical cords and dipped them in iodine solution.
Then the doe started looking for a teat...

...and she found it and latched on pretty well.

The buck is still looking and I gave up helping long enough to get some dinner.
First KID VIDEO. Hear their little voices.
