We Are Deep In the Heart of Texas

Nomadic seasons of farming adventures with nature thrown in to include; a pinch of family, snippets of friends, counting our blessings, paying IT forward, home school, and the spicy things I decide to rant about.

A New Kid in Town --Almond

Yesterday, before my husband got off from work.  I emailed him to see if he could pick up Saenz from school because I thought March (Obama & Hillary's daughter) was in labor. 

I could tell he did not believe me but, he agreed.  See with goats, the first labor is usually Hard and Fast. This was March's first pregnancy as well so, I wanted to be there in case she had trouble.

Sure enough less than an hour went by,  I had Zephyr outside with me entertaining baby Pices.  And in a flash, Plop out came the kid.  Zephyr called her Almond.

So welcome to the world baby Almond. After this with the help of my husband; we moved March and her kid ALMOND to a holding pen since Aries was butting the baby. Then we got Pices and I rubbed after birth onto him, to see if March will allow him to nurse with her kid.

Well March is not liking the intrusion so:

We tied her head with a tether to a pole and one of her hind legs. LOL Well greedy eater PICES does not mind getting jostled a bit by Momma March and took to nursing. March is not happy but we will wait a day or two to see if she allows him to feed with her baby -- ALMOND.

IF she doesn't accept him but stays with her own. Great

IF she accepts him I am okay with bottle feeding him.

BUT if she doesn't accept them both then they will be reared together on a bottle.

Either way, it will work out because I am keeping the two kids together.
