It’s Triplets for Petunia!

Right on her due date, Petunia had her 2nd, 3rd, and 4th kids!  Last year, her first year, she had only one kid, so this year I was expecting her to have twins, but she surprised me with 3.  All three are does, two are brown and one is black.  We went out to feed the goats and pigs their dinner and were looking more at Daisy, since I’ve been waiting 3 days for her kids.  Keith had thought he heard the little “maaaaa” from a kid, but there were none.  Then we both heard it coming from the other side of the barn, and there, tucked in a corner were three newborn kids – still a little wet.  So we helped dry them off, and moved in a heat lamp.  Everything looks good with them for now and we’ll check on them again in a little while.  We saw one of them nursing, but the other two were more interested in staying under the heat lamp.  I’d stay in there and try to help them along, but Petunia still isn’t terribly friendly with us and our presence is more of a hindrance than a help in that area.  Now we’re just waiting on Daisy & Lily…
