|Sugar and her brand new baby|
Sugar gave birth to her baby this evening at 4:20 pm. We thought with her being so big that she would have two maybe even three babies but she only had one. A mostly black female with a tuft of white between where her horns will be. Her ears are also salt & pepper. At 5 hours old she was already wanting to play. She is the first baby to be born in the new manger.
The baby was breach. Harriet was able to assist with the delivery when Sugar started having a strong contraction she pulled the baby right out. Thank God Harriet is a retired Lay Midwife. I'll be honest I was lost at what to do. I can build but birthing is a whole other ball game. I think Sugar did good for her first birth. Thank you for the new addition to the homestead Sugar.
