Triplets!

Hermione surprised us yesterday afternoon with triplets!  All three are girls.  When we found them, two were well cleaned off and running around.  One wasn’t.  We tried to get her to nurse but Hermione had decided two are quite enough, thank you, so she’s a bottle baby.  We brought her inside, cleaned her up and fed her colostrum.  She’ll have just that for the first 24 hours, then we’ll switch to goat milk from last season that we’ve stored in the freezer.  When she’s strong enough, she’ll go back into the pasture and I’ll feed her there every 4 hours.   Right now, she’s warm and cozy and keeping Bindi company.
