I was feeding Vashti when someone came running into the milk room. “Zipporah is having her babies!”
Vashti’s stomach was full enough that I decided she was done for now, so I set her down and grabbed a stack of towels for Zipporah’s birth.
She was in kidding pen A, with half of my family and Jason.
Zipporah moved quickly, and within minutes we had our first baby – a buckling – on the ground, and we decided to name him Zachary.
With Zipporah’s two bucklings to one doeling, the bucklings were starting to creep up on the doelings. We always hope for a “doe year” – and our doe year was rapidly becoming less likely!
