I heard Becca Boo going into labor on the baby monitor and rushed right out to see if she needed help. She found a comfortable spot and began the birthing process, it only took her three hard pushes.
Chip and Gidget climbed up on the igloo so they could get a good look.
When Sara heard Becca Boo crying out she came to the door and started whimpering. I couldn't let her in as Addison was taking care of little Alex in that area so Sara just had to settle with peeking in over the door.
Becca Boos little buck popped right out, he was no problem at all.
Becca seemed in shock at first but her little boy popped right up. Unlike Addison, Becca didn't start to clean her buck up immediately, she was a little standoffish. That didn't stop the little boy, he wobbled up to Becca and began to lick her!
Addison took immediate interest in Becca's buck, she started "talking" to him and calling out. I am sure that if I had handed him to her she would have taken him as her own! I finally had to dry him off myself and wrapped him in warm towels to get his temperature up. After a short time Becca finally began to clean him a bit and he was finally able to nurse.
With Becca crying, Chip and Gidget screaming, Addison talking, and Sara whimpering the sheep decided to come over to the goat barn to see what was going on. I took this picture of them through the goat house window.

It took her a bit, but Becca loves and snuggles her little boy.
Below is a short video of Becca and her young buck.

I live in NE Minnesota on 10 wooded acres with; my best friend Mocha, three dogs, chickens, Guinea Hens, Nigerian Dwarf Goats, Cascade Sheep, Icelandic sheep, and a few humans.
When we moved here it was completely wooded, our plan is to turn this property into a working homestead.
