Another Round

The next round of does are due to kid starting June 1. Nothing had happened on the first or second or yesterday morning. However, I got home last evening and asked my youngest offspring if any does had kidded.

“Nope” was the reply. I asked when he had checked last. “15 minutes ago.” We had a quick chat about lying and laziness and get your butt outside and double check. I changed clothes and met him at the barn.

“I was wrong Dad. That doe has twins.” I looked at the doe, counted the babies and then hollered at Duke. At that point Duke learned how to count to four in English, German and Spanish as she had quads. Oh, and another doe had twins also that were several hours old, that he also hadn’t checked.

Five more does due in the next couple of days.
