Chelly was kind of a surprise. She had not really been looking ready.
2 -1-16 We went out to chores and found Chelly’s udder full and she was completely dropped.
We continued checking on her throughout the day. At 5;00 we were finishing feeding babies so I decided to check on Chelly and found her laying down with her water broke. After a while she pushed and I saw part of the baby. I tried to figure out what it was and discovered it was a rear hock so I unfolded the leg and delivered a beautiful 5.8 doeling. Not long after that she delivered two bucklings.
Way to go, girls! A fabulous start to the kidding season…… Thank you Lord!
A quick update on Rhoda: At only 5 days fresh, she is already milking 9.7 lbs. Amazing milker!!!
