Daisy kidded last night. This was only her second freshening and again she had a single kid. I was sure she’d have more than just one but nope, just the one. This time, however, she had a single doeling which proved to be much easier on her than last year’s single buckling. The doeling is very healthy and active, stood up really quickly and was able to nurse with just a little help from us.
This little doeling showed up around 11:30pm last night. By midnight she was nursing all on her own without needing any help to find the teat. While I’m pretty tired, I’m very happy it wasn’t a repeat of last year’s 3:30am difficult kidding.
This picture isn’t the greatest. Daisy is an aggressive licker and kept moving around her so we couldn’t get a good shot. What you don’t see really well is her really cool markings. She’s got a dorsal stripe down the white part of her back and then the diagonal lines on her legs.
This little girl doesn’t have a name yet as she’s going to a new home when she’s weaned. We’re just waiting for her soon-to-be-owner to tell us what name she would like to use.
