Amateur vet day

Pip has had a pregnancy related condition for the last few weeks where she has been unable to get up on her feet. The vet said it wouldn't improve until she kidded so the interns have been trying to make her as comfortable as possible.

Yesterday was her due day and since she appeared to be having contractions, Christy stayed up all night with her. By this afternoon the vet said Pip was probably going to need help. With a little teamwork from our niece Nicole, Christy was able to go in and bring 4(!) tiny nigies into the world. One didn't make it but so far mom and 3 girls are hanging in there. They are quite small and certainly not out of the woods yet but we are hoping for the best. How did you spend your Sunday? #nigeriandwarf #ranchlife #kiddingseason

New lamb

I looked out the office window this afternoon and saw a tiny white dot among the bigger white dots and it ended up being a new addition to the herd. #stcroixsheep #lambingseason
