Fox and Agro were actually in a set of triplets. Their momma had them out on the pasture and didn’t want anything to do with them. Their brother suffocated to death before he was cleaned off and these two were left wet in the cold. They were found almost dead. After being revived and given some colostrum they were brought to me and are now thriving and very happy babies. Agro does have some vision problems, but other than that they are perfect little miracle babies.
Here is an update on Spot. He was the little one i got with the messed up leg at one day old. He is now about 1 1/2 months old and going strong!
On baby watch today. Maisey is going to kid any time now. There are obvious signs in everything she is doing. I managed to snap these two pictures to show the extreme angle around the tailhead. This is usually only apparent within a few hours of kidding.
Meet Fox and Agro. Fox, the lighter one, is slightly smaller than Agro. Fox is a bit more active though. They are one day old and were rejected by their dam. I am excited to bring these two boys into the farm and hopefully they will make it through these next few crucial days. They are very tiny for boers and that is why it is critical I keep watch over them for the next few days very closely.
Things have been busy here on the farm. We have two new bottle babies, and a litter of rabbits as well. We had a few issues with some surrounding farms’ goats. I always get called in to resolve things and I even got to witness an emergency C-section on one doe. Pics will be uploaded very shortly of the two new arrivals. They are one day old today. :)
Snow should be coming in to my area tomorrow or the next day. Hopefully It will stick to the ground and if It does I will get lots of pictures! If it snows it’ll be the first time its snowed in years so im super excited!
Spot is running around like a champ today! His leg didn’t bend out the wrong way once! From here on it should continue to stay in the right position thanks to the muscles he is building from moving around so much.
Also, he is 4 days old today! I’d say we are making fantastic progress and from watching other kids, I’d say he is only one day behind as far as development goes, and that is phenomenal considering he didn’t get much milk until I got him.
