    I'm so excited, do you guys think I could give her the haircut a little early? She's scheduled for Wednesday but I have a free day on Monday so could I do her then?

    Go for it Sara! A few days won't matter as much as a few weeks would!
    I need to get Bootsie done in a week and then Tilly and Angel as they are due within days of each other! LOL...Holly might just enjoy having it done sooner than later!

    So what did the babies you dreamed about look like?

    I had a dream that my doe kidded, she had twins, both gold and white bucklings. One was mostly white with a gold head and blue eyes, the other was more 50/50 and had brown eyes. And in the dream I was so disappointed that they were bucks. I'm actually dying for a doe that looks just like Jade (the mom, she's black with some white), but throw in some blue eyes. We'll see, and I will be disappointed if they are bucks, I've never been disappointed before as long as I get healthy kids, but this time I REALLY want a doe.

    Funny thing about dreaming. My very first bred doe was a white mix (possibly kiko), who came from an all white herd and was bred to a cream colored LaMancha, who's parents were one white and one cream. So I expected to get white kid(s), shortly before she kidded I dreamed she had quads and all were gold and white! The colors were so vivid in the dream! And guess what color my first kid was? Yep, gold and white!

    So if my dreams tell me anything, I should expect these babies to be gold and white.

    Go Holly! I would say she could probably go anytime. My friend who has nigis has does kid early all the time. Last year she had a doe that kidded one day one fourty and her babies were just fine.

    Aww, Sara, she's looking really good! Nice job on the trim too! Alot can happen in 7 days but I'm thinking she's gonna make you wait til she hits 147. Just because you made her udder cold! LOL :p

    It is looking very nice! Still early to tell how it is going to turn out though when she is a few weeks fresh. She is looking super close! Her vulva is quite swollen, and that udder is REALLY coming along.

    From what I can tell she's going to have a pretty good medial. :D

    Yep looks like it! And correct teat placement. But the attachments are really too early to tell, IMO.

    Only thing that I can tell now is that the medial is looking VERY good. Teats are in the right place, but until she is totally full you won't know for sure. Binks was looking really good too but now I'm told that her teats face forward too much, she does have a pocket in front where the glandular tissue starts and hopefully the teat size improves with time. Holly is definately off to a great start!
