Kidding Season 2012 Is Here!

Aziza produced two nice, healthy bucklings this morning.  Its a rainy day, but relatively warm for New Year's Eve. Its about 45F right now. She picked a good day to kid.
They were up, dry and carrying on. Things were so well done that I only trimmed one umbilical cord.
We moved everyone to a waiting pen where the warming barrel was set up and ample food was given to "Z".  She was a bit nervous, but she got over it fast as more and more people stopped to admire her boys.  Its been a long while since we had babies in the barn. After a while, enough was enough though.  If both kids were being held, she started to complain, as she wanted to know where they were.
Right now the three are in the barn bonding and nursing. Looks like we have two more "A" names to come up with in 2011.
