Tales from the Goat Birthing Pen!

Ally's birthing tale was text book for a triplet delivery!

We have been impatiently waiting for Ally to kid and on Sunday, April 26th her time had come. I went out to check the girls and didn't see my Ally girl.  I immediately looked around for her and she was isolated near the fence which is unusual for her. I knew something was going on. I went over to love on her and saw the tale, tale sign of labor.  When a goat is in labor you will see a string of clear birthing fluid. However this was a small string, only 3 to 4 " long.  Farmer Jason was coming up the driveway on the 4 wheeler and I flagged him down. I loved on her some more and she started to push within 10 minutes of me finding her. I know she was just waiting on me to get to the pasture. lol

She had a uneventful, text book goat delivery and I was able to catch all 3 births on video.  First out was the biggest F7 buckling born. He is stunning. He is brown and black in color and has a perfect roman nose. He looks a lot like Dad, Porter, our F6 Mini Nubian buckling for Louisiana. About 20 minutes later she pushed out a white doeling while the buckling was nursing. She didn't even grunt and licked her F7 Mini Nubian buckling the entire time she was delivering her second baby goat. A few minutes later out came the last baby, a buckling.  He is white in color like his doeling sister. Our F6 Mini Nubian Nanny is a baby machine!  

I am already smitten with all 3 of these baby goats but that shouldn't be a surprise since Ally and I are so close.
