I have a five day old buckling and doeling (mother is kinder father nigerian) so they are small. It has been in the triple digits here since they were born and the 100 degree+ temperatures are miserable! My question is the boy seems to pant constantly all day long, very visible and opened mouth. The girl does not (she is about 1/2 his size). Should I be concerned or do anything. Never had any babies born so late and when it's so hot I am worried. He's also not quite as advanced as the female just seems a little slower to do things not as"hyper" as she is jumping around and up on stumps, not as sure on his feet, etc. And the other question, does anyone know if it's OK to feed FRESH alfalfa, by that I mean cut straight from the field..not in bales. Not dry. My husband has access to a lot for free if he just cuts it, but I don't want to use it until I'm sure it's OK. :shrug: I've visited here so many times and usually my questions are answered just by reading the other posts. Thanks for any info.
