Gemma was so large that we were certain that she was having two kids. Well, she ended up having just one kid... a 10 pound buckling. We named him Ragnar, after the famous Viking, Ragnar Lothbrook.
Because he's an only kid, we decided to keep them in the house in a dog crate for the time being. He's getting along great with the dogs, especially the Jack Russells. The larger dog, Bailey, doesn't care for him much - partly because he occasionally tries to nurse off her.
Now that Ragnar is a little bigger and stronger, we plan to try putting him in the stall in the barn this weekend. We hope that this will help him get somewhat acclimated to the barn in time for the next kid, which Weezie will have in a couple of weeks.
Unfortunately, we don't think that our farm is setup to keep bucks at this time. So Ragnar will be going to another farm in the near future. We hope to sell them to a farm that will breed him since he does have a great pedigree. But right now we're just gonna enjoy this cute little guy.
