Diva Had Not One

Not two, Not three but FOUR babies tonight! 2 boys and 2 girls. The first boy looks just like Nitro, well actually all 4 look like Nitro but he is more so. The second little boy is kinda weak. We have him in the house tonight after letting him bond with Diva for a couple of hours. The third one was a big girl and then the fourth was a little girl. All 3 with Diva and doing well. They nursed and have been walking and even climbing on their mom but Diva doesn't seem to mind. Yesterday Diva was running Sammi out of the building. We tired putting Sammi back in so she could lay down but Diva would run her out again. When we checked we saw that Diva was in early stages of labor and wanted Sammi out of her way. William divided the building in half so Diva and Sammi could each have their own stall. It worked and Diva left Sammi along. This afternoon Diva's bag became huge and she was having contractions. I thought she would probably have her babies tomorrow and was hoping for triplets. William said she would have them late tonight and it would be twins. Well when the hard labor started she didn't waste any time. She had the first one at 9:20pm and the last one around 9:50pm. Mom and babies are doing fine. Sammi still hasn't had her babies yet. I think seeing Diva with hers is going to inspire her to get er done.

We finally have baby does! Our first ones ever born at Hidden Haven!!
