So, this morning right after packing lunch for eight and getting into my "leave the house" clothes, Ben came running in to announce that Leia had babies - twins. We ran out in great excitement; I really didn't think she was due until next month. She had a baby boy and girl. The boy is a large little bruiser but the little girl is pretty small and hasn't nursed too well. I missed my morning training to take goat temps and promp her to nurse with milk on my finger.
She still isn't doing as well as the boy, but I think she is stable. I really hope she is nursing before I go to bed tonight or I'm going to have to spend half my night in the barn and I will be pretty tired tomorrow in class.
