Yesterday morning MT Rivendells TQ Ygritte had quadruplets sired by Larkstone SP Grand Design *B Elite. Quadruplets were a welcome surprise -- we thought she would only have twins again, as she didn't look that big. There are 2 doelings (the chocolate kid and white buckskin kid) and 2 bucklings (the 2 buckskin-chamoise combos, AKA "red buckskins"). Must say it is a beautiful litter. Already looking great even though they are still little fat wiggly newborns. And Ygritte is a wonderful mama.
Both doelings and 1 buckling will be retained for now, and the other buckling is spoken for.
That makes 10 sets of quadruplets this year, and by the look of some of the other pregnant does (especially Cookie and Chantilly), it won't be the last. MT Rivendells AV Nyala 1*M 1*D is next up to kid, due on the 15th.
