Hello everyone! Hope all is well.
We have made it through all the heat-related issues and have some nice kits to show for it. While we did lose 2 moms, we were able to save the babies and they are doing quite well.
Sometimes you just have to tighten your belt and go for it. It is disheartening to know that we lost the does but at least we can keep the line going through the kits.
We have hit the pause button on the breeding program until next month. With temps in the high 90s I just do not feel comfortable nor do I see the need to place the does under more stress just for the sake of having more kits. The health of the does is more important.
Remember, we are always here if you need us. Until next time...
