Today at 1pm I had a commitment to be at the Ligonier Valley Trail for a walk for some publicity we are doing after a successful fundraiser. I really had the feeling that I would come back to kids, as this morning Twee's ligament at her tail was completely loose. A sign that birth will come soon.
As we drove up the lane I could see a small white thing and we could see Twee looking along the side of the shed, so we planned on finding the other kid there. Twins are the norm and she had been huge. Even the other does were interested in the goings on by the shed, and gathered round when we came to check things out.
There were three and just born - a doe and two bucklings.
The whole neighborhood answered to the call of "Babies in the field!". After drying them a little, and letting them attempt to nurse, we brought them into the barn.
Dave had the heat lamp going and bedding down, so after a lot of yelling and nursing starts, they all fell asleep exhausted.
Just a VIDEO of the triplets snoozing!
Way to go Twee!
