"Bailey" our eldest doe, who is on day 142 today got her birthing haircut. She was like an angel & just stood there like the sweetheart that she is while I trimmed her up. This was my first birthing haircut so it's not the prettiest I've seen, but she doesn't seem to mind as I gave her lots of treats for being such a god girl :)!!! She was very fuzzy - LOL. Her ligaments are almost totally gone & were pretty mushy tonight so kids soon (in the next few days). Please think :girl: PINK :girl: for me!!!

Re: "Bailey" got her birthing haircut today...

I'm glad she's behaving. Nothing harder than a doe who refuses to stand still for a birthing haircut. I've had more than my fair share of those types. Haha I have two more to do and I expect bad behavior from them. Guess we'll see!

Hope she gives you some does!

You Southerners- I would love to do a trim to make the mess cleaning easy but I worry about how cold it still is here- 35 in the mornings. Do you think too cold for a clip?

Re: Bailey's ligaments are gone now...

When she kidded here last year she lost her ligaments and was totally normal all day. She took her good ol' sweet time to kid and she was an old pro at kidding. She knew just what to do. Good luck!

Re: Bailey's ligaments are gone now...

Still no kids. Ashley, you're right she's taking her sweet old time. As long as all goes well & we get healthy kids she can have all the time she needs- LOL. Her ligaments have been gone since late yesterday evening & she was being very talkative (not usual for her unless feeding time). She is having some discharge & urinating a lot this morning. Of course I have to leave for work at 1 PM today & won't be home until 10:30 tonight :worried: . My hubby will be here till about 5 & then I will come home on my lunch break to check on her. I wish I was off work today!!! She'll probally wait until I'm gone & my hubby leaves for work!!! :hair:

Hope she kids easy and with someone there. Easier to get the babies cleaned if someone's there. Good luck.

Re: Bailey's ligaments are gone now...

Well I am just getting home & she sure is making me wait to see these kids!!! She's on day 144 & when I just went out & checked her the slope of her back has changed & she's holding her tail arched down - so I'm hoping for some kids before I have to go to work tomorrow afternoon or just as long as I'm here. My hubby would have no clue what to do even if I told him - LOL!!! :wink:

No kids as of yet, I just went out to feed the critters. Bailey's having some more discharge & dripping some milk now.
