Hard Pull

It was past time to start kidding again.  Two days past time.  This fact alone was making me a bit nervous.  Now throw in the fact that it was a first time doe, although she is a 2 year old.  Finally, she was in labor on Monday evening.  It was a hard pull.  A very hard pull. C section was crossing my mind.  Luckily, Muret was here.  He held the horns while I ran the chains.  And it was the dreaded single, buck kid.  Any time there is a hard birthing, you can bet it will be a single, buck kid.  The doe did her part pushing and I have felt smaller pelvic area.  The kid was big.  Really big.  And no, he didn’t make it.  Hopefully, this is the end of this stuff.
