And.......Another barn cat Caramel was laying about five feed away watching it all.
Poor Plenty had no privacy at all. But if you choose to have your kids out in the open field rather than in a quiet secluded stall you have left yourself wide open for an audience.
Farm life is strange. Milky Whey had triplets and one of them was this tiny, tiny doe. I had to tube feed her many times a day for several days and she is still so small but growing and doing well. And Plenty has this huge beautiful doeling that looks so good but dies within less than 24 hours no matter what I did.
God is so good. I am grateful for this life we have. It is just hard sometimes.
Plenty's remaining kid bucking is doing very well. I don't think he will be able to keep up with her huge amount of milk she produces but it will soon come down to what he needs. I have milked her out a bit to give her relief a few times. She is a good doe.
I pray all is well with everyone. Blessings and happy farming.
