The first of the dairy babies is here!

Our first dairy doe has kidded. Begonia had an enormous buck kid in the early hours of last Wednesday. We have named him Chives. He is a frisky little guy and has a beautiful blond coloring…he reminds me of a Charolais calf. We were hoping to milk Begonia but being a first time freshener, she has very tiny teats…coupled with a slight accident I had involving a large knife, we are having a difficult time.
I ordered a Henry Milker yesterday. I received an email last night that it has already been shipped. We are eager to see if this will help us with Begonia and also prevent the issue we had when Lucky refused to feed her kids.
We have three more dairy does in waiting. Every morning we anticipate a new arrival but so far everyone is just looking fat and bored.
