She gave birth to 5, and at this point the remaining 4 are doing fine. 3 girls and 1 boy. Their umbilical cords are still attached (dry, but attached). Mom is pooped to say the least, and not happy with the heat. Heat index is between 105 and 109 degrees. She's used her water dish as a wallow, she's been desperate to cool down.
While we were working on the auto feeder, we let her out and she ran to the wallow (I babysat). Poor thing. She didn't stay for long, she wanted back by her newborns. The brief time in the wallow seemed to lift her spirits. I feel for the poor girl, she can barely keep her eyes open, but she sure doesn't close them when people are around.
All things appear to be going as needed. All of them are content. The little "bacon bits" (name is courtesy of Preppy), are already wrestling with each other. I'm sure to have more photos this weekend. Don't ya just love little surprises?!
