Miss Priss’ Kids

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Miss Priss dropped her kids on us today – a huge 8 lb buckling and a teeny tiny 4 lb doeling.  Lindsey said that the buckling hogged all the space and food inside.  But both seem to be healthy and vigorous.  They certainly have good lungs because they both yelled really loudly when they got their #7 and #8 ear tags.

Priss is the only experienced doe we have.  All of the others are having their first kids.  Priss is much more aggressive about getting her kids up and about as well as chasing away other curious creatures – goats, other kids, calves, cows, and me!  She gave me a nice little headbutt while I was putting iodine on her kids’ umbilical cords.  Good mom!

Fancy is out in the pasture about to give birth, so there may be another post later tonight!
