And then there were three...


I went back to check on Sage and found him shivering cold, so I ran to the hardware store before it closed at 5:00 p.m. and bought a couple of heat lamps. But when I got back, there was no electricity coming into the hoop house. Shit.
While I was trying to figure out what to do next, another nanny went in to noisy labor and gave birth to another doe kid.  Meet Cinnamon.
 
Meanwhile I put a jacket on Sage.




And Miss Thyme was evicted from the kidding pen. She seems to be enjoying being with the big girls. She tried out those new legs with some joyful leaping.


Hard to believe she's only 5 days old.
More pics soon.

It is just awesome to be able to share in the experience of these births in real time. I'm going to feel like I "know" my yarn when it arrives!
