Socrates and friend
born about 12 hours apart
Ashford Joy and Kiwi
I don't know how a month can go by so fast, but it has! Since last blog, 2 babies have been born to join Socrates. Last Wednesday, Margarita had a beautiful little rose gray boy, but he wasn't acting quite right. So watching and waiting. The next morning, sometime before 6:15, Diamond had a little white or beige boy (not sure yet). Strong as an ox. He was running before he was 6 hours old. The little rose gray boy, however, was not doing well. We started antibiotics and our vet came out Friday am. Turns out he wasn't going septic--he has a heart murmur.
So more waiting and watching. Supplementing with goat's milk. Friday he seems to be getting stronger. Saturday he has started running a little, so hopefully we're on the mend. Thanks to lots of cyber friends on facebook, I'm hopeful he'll outgrow it. It seems that many do.
In addition, my Blazing Star Ranch store inside our vacuum store, Anderson's Vacuums, is finally opening this Tuesday! I have Ashford Spinning Wheels in and lots of alpaca yarn, some alpaca roving and wool roving. If you're in the Denver area, stop by. It's at 3424 S Broadway! We'll be getting more products in on an ongoing basis.
