Well, good news and bad news. Lil Sister kidded last night during the storm. Just one kid, surprised me since she was so huge. Kid was weak, I had to CPR it, it nursed but didn't live thru the night. Sis still has afterbirth to pass, 12 hours later, but I did get her milked this morning so the hormones should kick in and cause her to clean out the afterbirth. Poor Sis, she can't figure out why the kid won't get up for her. Grizz has been by her side the whole time, trying to comfort her. Silly dog he is but a good dog/goat buddy just the same. While this is better than what I had feared (a repeat of her Momma), it's not ideal for her and we still have some business to work thru before she's all okay.
Eh, such is life on a farm where the miracle/circle of life happens with all it's gooey, bloody glory.
