Nina fooled us all!
I went to bed around 8:30pm, checked on Nina and still...no change.
No more bagging up, no mucus, no sign of labor AT ALL!
Around 10:15 Nina let out a screech, followed by the goat approximation of a banshee wail.
Jerked me up out of a dead sleep...I grabbed the birthing kit and flashlight and hauled butt out to the pen.
She was laying down in the goat house and the first little one was on it's way out!
As soon as the wee one was delivered, I gave it a quick wipe down and presented her (yes, a doeling!) to her mama. Nina began bathing her and cuddling her. A few minutes later, Nina screeched again and began delivering the second kid. Uh-Oh...this one decided to come into the world the hard way! Breech and it's wee legs were all tangled up.
I pushed it back in and tried to sort things out...with Nina looking back at me as if she were asking "What ARE you doing back there!?"
By this time, all the kids had wandered out to watch the festivities and Nina was getting very nervous. I shooed everyone out of the pen and came back in to wash up a bit.
Then I went back out and Nina had a second kid she was pushing out...I helped pull it out and in no time flat she was cleaning it up..
Here's the first pics!
So, Humble Wife, send me your info for me to send you the cajeta (I won't post it!).
Also...Name these babies!
Names have to start the letter "N"...and remember, they are both girls!
