Last Saturday was another class at Birch Ridge Farm! This time I learned how to make ricotta, cheddar curds, and chevre. *drool* It was glorious. But even more glorious than the cheese was that one of the does went into labor during class! I saw a baby be born! Awwwww!
This Nigerian Dwarf doe gave birth to a 5lb 10oz buckling. They usually have 2lb kids. To put that in perspective, that's like your mom having a 20lb baby. In other words, I cried a little when I saw her pushing and screaming, then vowed never to have a baby for as long as I live.
Ok, that's pretty adorable. I guess I could have a baby someday maybe in the far future.
He got some help to take his first drink.
GIANT BABY! He's as big as the 6 week old kids running around outside!
I wonder which babies belong to which mom...
