    We had 2 kids born Saturday night. Not even 6hrs after we left for a mini vacation. I knew one was going to kid- I had 5 due anytime, but I figured Dot wouldn't be the first to pop. Dot had a little buckling and a little doeling.

    The doeling has the cutest spot on her head. A dark mark right above her eye.

    Now to wait- with this wonderful Blizzard in SE SD, I have 3 that decided they were gonna start contractions and driving me crazy. 2 have been doing this on and off for 2 wks. The other one just started this morning. Doe code of Honor- they obviously had to wait for the blizzard.

    Congrats on the little ones @Mmhyronimus

    Where at in SE South Dakota are you? I’m near Ashton, IA so we might not be too far from one another. I’ve been watching one of my girls (3 with unknown due dates) a little closer today as she’s showing some signs of getting ready and naturally we are in this blizzard so she’ll do it now lol Good luck with your ladies and hope you stay warm in this crappy weather.

    I'm south of Sioux Falls about 20 miles. The snow I could handle. It's the wind that's horrible.

    Agreed! I have to scoop out a 2 ft snow drift in front of the door every half an hour :confused:

    You're getting more snow than me. Finally it has slowed almost to a stop, at least for new snow. Still blowing like crazy. I'm sweating like crazy from the last shovel out.

    Had 2 does go into labor with the blizzard. Pepper had 2- but had complications. Lost the buckling. He was huge. I wrote about that in another post. (She lost 2 in 2015. So she was pretty possessive of this kidding.) [​IMG] [​IMG]

    305/Betsy- had 2 kids with no complications. A buckling and a doeling. Noisy little buggers. [​IMG][​IMG]

    Well, woke up this morning and Stubbs had finally started with full labor. Not that she wanted to. Came out to a puddle of cold slime. Toes peeking out, but she had no desire to push. Ended up going it to pull the kid. Little doeling- butt first, but got her out. Stubbs wanted to clean her off and thought she was done. As big as she was, I knew she wasn't done.
    Barely reached in and found toes. Only this time he wasn't backwards- but he was stuck with his head facing backwards. She had no desire to push for any of it. I think she wore herself out doing the early pushing the last couple days- but she wasn't in true labor then.

    Got a healthy buckling and a healthy doeling! [​IMG][​IMG]
    The little doeling has the socks- Well, they are more garters since they go all the way up! LoL![​IMG] And she is such a camera hound once she found out I was taking pictures- and not even an hour old![​IMG]
