Another quick update. Good news. Victoria is now feeding from mum. I went in on Monday morning with her next bottle, and there she was, merrily suckling away. She gave me and the goat’s milk a withering look! So that was a huge relief. Hopefully all will go well from now on. Victoria has a short daily outing to stretch her legs in the field but we’re keeping her and Katrina in the stable until it warms up and dries out.
Here’s Victoria enjoying a brief interlude of sunshine.
We’re now awaiting the next cria. Gabby, Victoria’s granny, is due any minute now. So I must quickly make another cria coat and get some colostrum from the vet’s and goat’s milk from Carrefour … just in case this new one is another Victoria.
