Our first ever triplets!

Today was a very exciting and scary day!! Lola had her kids!! She had triplets!! Our first triplets born here on the ranch! The first one was not coming in a good way, one leg was up over its head almost and the other was back under it ... I helped Lola by gently working the kid out as best I could, Lola took it well bless her heart.... Then I could feel another one, with time she had the second one which was HUGE but luckily wasn't all twisted up, then the third teeny tiny little fella ( who now holds the tiniest goat born here record)  was twisted up as well, one leg under it and one leg beside its head, between Lola and I we got him out and I went to work on him,  finally he took a breath! YES!!! He is so tiny! But with all this excitement  I am happy to report all three kids are doing super! Two bucks and 1 Doe the doe was the second one which was so big! Lola is not a big goat this was her first kidding.. Bless her heart she was  a trooper through the whole thing... and in the end tonight when I went to tuck everyone in for the night in the barn... Ms. Lola gave me a nuzzle on my face when I was squatted down checking the kids... I said you are most welcome Lola you did so good, look at your lovely kids... Good girl Lola! :O).....

 That nuzzle to my face, made all the worry and scary worth while...........

I will post pics tomorrow I didn't have time to get any today...

This is a keeping experience, it is somehow sacred, to deliver these triplets. And...lola...nuzzling you, just precious.

Thank you.

You definitely got a big dose of experience with Lola's birthing and you sound like you handled it excellently! So glad all are healthy, but 3 babies for a first kidding?? That is one prolific little girl you got there...or perhaps that boy. I get all weepy after deliveries like that and while I stay strong during, I practically fall to pieces afterwards. I think you need a huge pat on the back for keeping all together..Congratulations and I am anxious to see photos!!
