Still waiting...she is getting really annoyed with us separating her from the rest of the herd at night. Got to love how I'm the bad guy on trying keep her and the babies safe!

They always play this game though. Just when I am about to give up separating them, BAM baby on the ground.

At 12 today she was standing around eating hay, no contractions. At 4 she was pushing hard but nothing happening. Time to glove up, oh fun, NOT.

Went in found one leg and nose. Think with me fiddling around she pushed the leg out and and the head. The other leg was back all the way. No way getting that thing back into get the leg out.

Helped her get the baby out but baby is not in great condition. It is really cold out and mom stepped on it three times. So it is in the house now sleeping in a box.

Of course it is a boy.

So far no more. Singles are always so hard... Moms udder is so large the teats are almost touching the ground. Probably have to start milking her in the morning.

Thanks all for the good thoughts.

Yah I was going to work in the garden as it is some what nice. That shot the evening. Baby is finally standing up and is now outside with mom. Mom is cleaning the little guy, no other babies just one. We will see if he makes it though the night.

Have another young goat bagged up. Though if she is pregnant I am not sure where she is hiding the baby. She does not look pregnant at all. The one that just gave birth was so large she could barely fit through a door.
