Betty kidded a girl today

She was warm and dry, but couldn't nurse because Betty's udder was too swollen. So I got to milk nearly a quart out of Betty (two wonton soup containers) and teach the baby to both use a bottle and nurse off of mom. It was wet and stinky, but the baby learned really quickly, so I'm pleased.

I will likely have to go out and milk Betty down a few more times until the baby can nurse with the right long and strong pull and stamina to take care of the problem herself. But I certainly don't have to be concerned about how much milk Betty has to offer.

Very cute! Is she solid white?

No, actually. Her nose is black, her ears are tipped black, and her head has black and white hair mixed together and she has the shoulder section of a mohawk that is the same blend.

I agree. She's so adorable and I want to squish her.
