Video of Daisy's Kidding

Monday, May 24, 2010

Here is the video of Daisy's kidding on Saturday! Now, this is a little graphic (births are a little messy....) so if you're squeamish, do NOT watch this. One of the little girls who was watching the whole thing felt a little queasy and had to go sit down at one point - but it really is amazing. Birth is such a testament to God's amazing creation!

One of my favorite verses when it comes to goats is Job 39:1 - 3: "Do you know when the mountain goats give birth? Do you watch when the doe bears her fawn? Do you count the months till they bear? Do you know the time they give birth?"

It's true; I had an estimate of when I thought she might give birth.....but I didn't know for sure. God is the only One who knows the exact due date of every pregnancy.


Daisy had a relatively easy birth. I was pretty worried for a while, because Clover took a little longer to come out than I was expecting. His little front legs were extended all the way, so his head didn't appear for a while. I was beginning to wonder if maybe his head was swung to the side, in which case I would have to help out a little bit (eeeek!). Thankfully, I looked up and saw a little nose coming down, so I was VERY relieved.

As you can see from the video, we thought that Clover was the only one at first. And then, surprise, "Daisy's having another baby!!"

Have a great week, everyone!
