Waiting on our FF doe to kid - on day 140...she is larger than the pics show, but not quite ready to pop yet. Got a nice little udder started (I think :shrug: )




Our newest additions
This is Bonnie Blue, from Liz's place in PA...she's a sweet kid!


This is our Buttin' Head's buckling - Forrest Gump


Our Lost Valley Omega Red buckling - Omega's Legacy


Our Lost Valley Omega Red doeling - She needs a name - if anyone has any suggestions.....!


This adds several new lines to our older goats...hopefully we will have some good lookin' kids in years to come.

My goodness, you do have some great looking additions with the "younger generation"!
As far as a name suggestion on the little buckskin doeling, Peaches comes to mind.

Angel is a very pretty doe! I like her color pattern.....and I'm guessing that her :girl: :girl: will be arriving on day 145.

Re: Angel day 140 and new kids (pic heavy)

Ligaments are pretty well gone, and she looks like a holstein cow! Put her in the kidding shed...planning on checking on her throughout the night. She is a FF, so not exactly sure what is in store.... Had an easy kidding with my first doe's freshening in March, so I hope that this one goes well also. Hope to report that we have a few doe kids tomorrow morning. :) :)

Re: Angel day 144 and new kids (pic heavy)

Lots of grunting and groaning, ligs are completely gone (have been since about dark last night). She is up/down, up/down, and has a lot of mucus discharge. No honest pushing yet. Babies are moving around. Hopefully soon...(it was a LONG night!) My 8 year old DD insisted on staying with the doe in the kidding shed...she fell asleep on the floor - but she insisted that I stay with her. Not a lot of room in there for me, sleeping daughter and pregnant doe! Hopefully - babies by noon??? How long can they go once ligs vanish??

Re: Angel day 144 - no babies yet...

usualy 12 hours till pushing. She is probably waiting for you to leave her alone to start teh pushing. My very friendly doe waited till I was ignoring her and not looking directly at her to finaly start pushing. I hear her mom is just like that. once she started pushing there was no going back so I went into the pen with her and she was ok but every other time I just sat wtih her she acted like nothing was going on

Re: Angel day 144 - another buckling!

Had a black and white buckling about 1:00...passed placenta about a half hour ago, but I still feel something. Had to go in to help the little buckling - he had shoulders stuck and once I got his legs coming out right, we were fine.

Stupid question...went back in to feel for anything unusual (basically because I couldn't believe the doe only had one kid in there)...should the uterus feel 'empty'? I can feel around something - I honestly think there is another baby in there - but not sure. Any thoughts??? She isn't pushing much, but she didn't push much with the first baby.

Re: Angel day 144 - another buckling!

Cute! (All of them) I suggest you name the doeling Bambi because she reminds me of a deer.
There could be another kid in there but I'm not sire hopefully someone else will be able to help you.

Re: Angel day 144 - another buckling!

CONGRATULATIONS!!! Love the B/W combo on the cutie!

I would think she would be done, if you went inside and didn't feel any kid parts, she's done, it will take a couple hours for the uterus to go down in size....and I am very glad Stacey was available to help.
