Bottle Babies

We have a few goats that we are supplementing with a bottle.  They are staying with the herd and in some cases trying to stay with the mother, but not getting enough on their own.
 This is a twin the mother isn't letting nurse.
 This one is a triplet that was born smaller than the others and just isn't keeping up yet.
 This triplet the mother won't let nurse.  It stays with her and gets to nurse if the nanny is distracted but as soon as she sniffs it she'll move off.
 Tickle only has one kid.  Since she is a bottle goat herself, I can hold her to let the other ones nurse sometimes.
More on her tomorrow, but she will be taking a trip to the Sunrise Service.
Pictures today are courtesy of sister C.  Thank you C.
