The kids are getting their rumens a-workin’ with some nice first cutting hay and Poulin Lamb-n-Kid grain. It’s a great sight and means we will be able to wean them off milk soon!

Kidding season 2012 is nearing its end.  Yesterday, kid number 164 was born, and there are only 6 does left to freshen.  We’ll keep some of the kids to replenish our milking herd, and the remaining kids will be pasture-raised for meat here on the farm.  We wanted to share this video of all our kids enjoying their newly cleaned pens.

Consider Bardwell’s top milker has finally freshened! Dandelion gave birth to two healthy kids, a doe and a buck. These kids sure have a lot to live up to, including Dandelion’s sweet disposition.

Our does are expert kid-cleaners. They lick their newborns dry with precision and efficiency – our towels are no match. Sometimes the moms can get tough: they will paw a kid into position or pull at an ear with their mouths. This little guy’s mom tugged a little too hard on his umbilical cord, pulling off the protective membrane. He’s ok, but we gave him a dressing to keep his exposed umbilicus clean as it heals. Number 99 also happens to be our biggest kid yet: at 13 pounds, he’s a giant next to his kid peers.
