We are done kidding at least until March (we had one doe get bred late and isn't due until March 2nd). We have a total of 30 kids with the average for 15 does being twins. We had 2 does have singles nad 2 does have triplets. All are healthy and happy. Frankie struggled to give birth to her doeling who weighed 11.2 pounds. I felt it was her sholders that were hard to pass but once she was out I think it might have been her ears!! LOL We were blessed with lots of colorful kids who immediately after birth nursed and then proceeded to run up and down the isles and visit with other kids. I am always amazed at how they can get up within seconds and by a few hours later be running around everywhere. It is nice to finally get some sleep again.....it is impossible when you know they are ready to kid. Many friends have been out to view the new kids and to laugh at their antics. Jill Zink
For all who have followed the deer since last summer......they still come around and eat corn off the front porch. They don't come everyday but I am always relieved when they show up to eat. I still get my deer kisses when they show up. I believe they are running with a small herd here in the area. When I spot them I always roll down the window of the truck and call their names and tell them to be careful. We have had young deer hit in the road at the bottom of the hill.....I always stop to check if it is them. I hope when they get pregnant they still come and visit and hopefully bring their kids as they grow. It may just be a wish but I hope to always be a part of their lives.
