    Dottie had twins today-a big paint buck with a big head and a smaller traditional doe. It came as quite a shock because we didn't put her in with a buck till the beginning of November. One of the young bucks must have gotten to her-making the daddy either my boy Jude or Mr. Jingles. The daddy is most likely Jude but I'll be doing a DNA test before I register them. I'll post pictures as soon as I load them. Right now I'm not sure if the baby doe will make it as she is a bit weak. I've done all I can for her though so keep her in your thoughts.

    On a happier note, any name suggestions? Perhaps football themed? :greengrin:

    This is the doe kid. She has a folded ear which stinks.

    The little doe died. I'm really upset right now. I just feel if I had been at home I could have saved her.

    I am so sorry that you lost the doe. She was a doll.

    I have to say. I put my does in with the buck in August and they have all kidded, so she would of been on time. Matter of fact some of the does I bred for others were in with the Buck as of the Fist of September they have kidded also.

    So sorry you lost the doeling. :hug:
    As for the ear for future reference, while it is still wet you can sometimes pop them out at the top, then make a cardboard sanwhich and duct tape it in place. It will fall off on its own in about 2 weeks, voila, no more folded ear.
    No not the ear the cardboard will fall off.

    I've tried that before with the folded ears and never had much luck. Now I'm good at popping the ones folded at the tip though.
