Well Momma goat had a rough 2 days of Labor. She had triplets after a few complications. Her first came out very easily, a little doeling and then she didn't have anymore. I thought maybe she would only have one, which didn't make sense because she was so huge. So we wait, but we never saw a placenta and she acted like she is still in labor, still pushing alot. The next day, I called the vet and we could never get a hold of him and so I called a nieghbor who is a sheep farmer, and he came over and pulled 2 more kids from her. The first he pulled was a huge still born buckling, and out came the 3rd very easily after that, which was alive but is very tiny. It took him 3 hours to finally stand and I ended up having to bottle feed him because Momma was weak and tired and wouldn't let him suckle. But after he finally was able to stand we were able to assist him to suck for the first time, I've never been so happy to see that! We are giving Momma an antibotic shock as well.
This is Big sister Lucy! born a whole 24 hours before the others.
This is littlest Man (he needs a good name) He survived all the odds.
