Not every day on the farm is a good one...๐Ÿ’”
Matt came down from doing an afternoon check and said that I needed to check on one of the girls, that she looked to be in labor. I told him that couldn't be right, she wasn't pregnant. Turns out, she was in labor. As soon as I saw her I knew that she was going much too soon. I brought her inside the house so I could watch her closely while also watching the kids. I usually do pretty good, even during the hard times, but this about broke me. She went through labor and finally had a much too tiny little boy. He was moving. I cried. There was absolutely no way he could survive being born at (I'm estimating) approximately half of the gestational period. He literally couldn't even take a breath. She wanted to clean him so I held him gently so she could. She talked to him in her momma voice trying so hard to get him to respond. Over a few minutes he quit moving but his heart kept on beating for so long. He was held until it stopped. This happened not once, but twice, the second time a little girl. Two precious little lives brought into this world too soon. After she cleaned and talked to them for about an hour, she finally realized that they were gone. My heart is breaking for her. For those that think animals do not have emotions, I would love for them to visit for a day. She is doing alright but is understandably depressed. This was not a planned pregnancy nor an anticipated one. We don't know what caused this preterm labor but we're thankful that the sweet momma is doing ok.
During all of this, Noah, who is 3 years old, came over and was asking what was happening. I tried to explain the best that I could that the baby needed to be in the momma's belly longer and that didn't happen. He kept telling me to put it back so it'll live. I wish we could have...

This little dude had a hard time coming into this world yesterday afternoon but has since been thriving. Unfortunately, his momma doesn't have enough milk to support him so he's being raised on a bottle. He's going to be looking for his new home soon. He's a beautiful, blue eyed Mini Alpine. Located right outside of Fall Branch in Chuckey.

Two fresh Lamancha/Alpine kids. Their little ears are so adorable๐Ÿ˜. It's hard to tell from these pictures but the little girl is half the size of her big brother! He was obviously getting all the good stuff from momma. We're keeping a close eye on both of them but so far they're doing great!

These big kids entered this world late Tuesday night in extremely dramatic fashion. Their momma was struggling to have them so we intervened after giving her a little too much time on her own. The first kid was presenting tail first. They need to come out front feet first, then head. We were finally able to reposition him and help him out but unfortunately he had already passed๐Ÿ˜ž. The second kid, a girl, was also backwards. She was also repositioned and helped out. The third kid, a boy, was actually coming out the correct way. This happens occasionally when there are multiple babies. Momma was tired but is doing well. Both kids are eating well but the boy can't figure out how to nurse off of his momma (she has large teats due to her breed and previous kids) so he's getting a bottle of his momma's milk. Hopefully he'll figure it out soon. Both of these kiddos come from very milky lines.

She's up and nursing๐Ÿฅฐ. Athena is such a sweet, attentive momma. She did decide to have her in the piled up dirty bedding instead of the warm, clean barn of course.

We try to let things happen as naturally as possible but occasionally we do have to step in to help. This baby girl was twisted around and her momma was struggling. After getting her repositioned, one final assist and she arrived healthy. Both her and her sweet momma are doing well. So thankful that we're able to be home during kidding/lambing season in case help is ever needed.
