    Allie kidded last night. It was a ruf night.
    She had twins. But we lost the girl. The boy is going to be most likely a bottle baby. Mommy has tore trying to get out 2-11lbs babies out and her pelvic did not open very much.

    Here is Axle ( 5 oz baby bottle for size comparison)

    Yikes that's extremely are you goin to have her fixed then ( i say fixed because accidents with bucks have happened) just keep as a pet or what are you goin to do (not that you have to decide now). For my situation my husband would probably tell me to sale because we have to have the milk and for us keeping a non productive animal just isn't an option until we get more land and have the space. That's really frustrating and hard on her and you. (Which so far looks like we might get more land really soon praying but will see) she diffently had a beautiful buckling.
