Zacchaeus and Zest

Over the last two days we knew that Zaphire was very close to going.

Tesla just finished giving birth, we were busy feeding her babies, and getting the stalls ready when Zaphire was looking like she was ready to get her kids out.

How did we know she was ready to get her kids out? Because she would not stop staring at us with the look of “HELP”!

She had a healthy pregnancy and we had some ideas of what to expect in the birthing process because she had thrown healthy kids in the past.

Zacchaeus was the first to come out. He weighed 8.8 pounds and besides being even wetter than babies usually are, he was very healthy and cute. Jade was covered in birthing goo after cleaning him off! That was funny and it grossed her out a little bit. Zest was literally right behind him and we were excited to find out she was a healthy 9 pound doeling.
