DiDi's Babies and Snow!
Yesterday afternoon I was walking out to feed while talking to William on the phone. DiDi came up to the fence and cried. When I walked over she turned her butt toward me and I saw 2 little feet. I told William I had to go, hung up the phone and ran to the pen. DiDi wouldn't go in the building so I held the two feet and she just walked forward and out popped a buckling. I took it in the maternity building and started cleaning it up. DiDi came in and helped. A couple minutes later she turned her butt to me and there were 2 more little feet. I held the feet DiDi walked forward and out popped another buckling! They have her red color but white front legs and white waist. They were up walking within minutes and nursing. They are bigger than Sonya's triplets. Speaking of Sonya's babies. I sold one of the bucklings yesterday. She doesn't have enough milk for 3 and a lady that purchased one last year to bottle feed wanted another one this year. Sonya is mad at me and looking for her other baby but she now has enough milk for the 2 she has. DiDi got mad at me this morning as I accidently put the baby of Sonya's that looks like DiDi's on DiDi to nurse. DiDi corrected me quickly and all babies nursed the right mom. Had about 3 inches of snow while I did morning chores but by the time I got everything done we had 6 inches and its still snowing! I love it!!! The reason it took me extra long to do morning chores is a shocker I will post about later today. Belive me it almost made me have a heart attack this morning but ended up being a wonderful surprise. I promise to answer everyone's questions about rumen and birthing questions later also. Until then here are the pictures of DiDi's babies. They are the two in front. Sonya's are the two in the back. Like DiDi and Sonya the kids like staying together.
