I am on baby watch again. I must say its an excellent distraction from all the heartbreak. Keeps me going and keeps me saine. Both girls are bred to Little Tot's Estate Meadow-Rue and both girls are due 2-28. Minuet's ligaments are nearly gone. They've been dropping daily. She is getting mushier too. Blossom's ligaments have been hard but are softening today, yet still kind of hard. So I think Minuet might go first. Course it wouldn't be the first time one of them tricked me either! Ha!

Here's Blossom, she's a 2nd freshener (Nottie's mom.) She had twins last time, buck/doe and both were coal black. Nottie got the blue-eyes. This time there won't be any blue-eyes nor should there be any black. Rue has given me 7 kids so far and all 7 have been chamoise. :D This is an old pic, taken 2-2...


Here's Minuet, she's a first freshener. She carries black and has blue-eyes. I am guessing some gold or chamoise kids and I'm hoping for blue-eyes too. Think pink!
Really old pic, taken 1-28...


What do you think they'll have? I'm getting so excited!

Re: Day 143 for Blossom & Minuet

Since my kidding season is officially over I'll send some of the pink I've been blessed with down to you Ashley. I think that both your girls will give you some doelings though I think Minuet will give you 1 of each and Blossom twin does! :girl: :girl: :girl: :boy:

Re: Day 143 for Blossom & Minuet

Thanks everyone! I do hope you're right! :D I fed them a little early tonight due to the rain and cold weather. Minuet's ligaments are gone, but she's not mushy yet so she's getting real close. Blossom's ligaments have really dropped, they're super low. Full moon tonight though neither one really looks ready to go that soon.

Re: Day 143 for Blossom & Minuet

I moved the camera today and now I can see them even better. Waiting and watching. Don't know if they're ready yet or will wait. I'll likely walk down later to see how they're doing.

Contractions???

Its now 7pm and Minuet has been standing in the corner of her stall for a while. Every few minutes she stiffens up some and her tail raises up. Then she'll relax and her tail will fall back down. I'm starting to wonder if she's going to kid sooner than I thought.

Re: Day 143 for Blossom & Minuet

No I haven't taken any new ones of her udder. I think that was a real contraction. Boy she's not wasting time if she's really in labor. Oh yeah, that's a contraction. I better get prepped to go down.

Re: Day 143 for Blossom & Minuet

She's a ff so I expect some screaming. So far none. She's just standing there laboring. Blossom's snoozing in the stall next to her. Minuet is such a mouth too so I'll be absolutely shocked if she's quiet through this.

Re: Day 143 for Blossom & Minuet

I can't recall if Minuet was a bottle baby or not. I am pretty sure she wasn't. She was kind of wild when we got her and Rue definitely was and still is wild. Minuet's somewhat friendly now, but not a really big pet type.

Re: Day 143 for Blossom & Minuet

Well Minuet is an '06 kid so this was before he was pulling everything onto bottle. I'm pretty sure she wasn't. Only bottle babies I have are my 3 buttin'heads girls and Petite and all of them are in your face. You'd think Blessing was. Haha

Robin is sooo friendly, but I don't think she was bottle raised, all of my does are friendly except Kadabra, but she is getting better every day!

Re: Day 143 for Blossom & Minuet

He does all kids now and I don't blame him. I'd like to get to a point like that too. I don't intend to let Fuchsia raise hers. They didn't fare as well as I'd hoped on her last year so I'll bottle raise her kids. I doubt I'll pull these though.
