20 goat kids and lambs were born between dawn on Sat. and dusk on Sunday which were the hottest days of the year so far. We hit 107 in Tonopah. Unable to regulate their own body temps the first few days of life they required cooling. Our bathtubs, showers and a play pen held all of the little ones during the heat of the day. At night everyone goes out to thier moms. Talk about a traffic jam. Here are the little darlings dreamig in the cool air on a soft blankie.
These spotted Navajo Churro lamb twins didn’t want to hang out with the goats and took over the shower stall! Too bad you can’t wash wool in the shower while on the hoof:) Here they are at 4 hours old. They are from Cousin It and are named “Lurch “and “Thing”.
During the day they are fed gatorade mixed with their own mom’s milk. By the time you get through the bottle feeding every 4 hours it is almost time to start again.
We napped in between feeding ourselves!
