Her ligs are barely there and her udder is growing even more, kids have dropped and last time went on day 149. Moved her to a kidding stall today so Tilly has company next to her. Tilly's issue is in the Special Care forum. Bootsie is sitting like a dog so I know she's just getting those kids lined up! These babies are DEFINATELY CHIEFS!! What colors do you think we'll have?



Chief


Probably even MORE agouti's!! lol!

You said she normally has twins? I think she'll have triplets due to her situation and the additional pressure. I will guess 2 does and a buck. 1 doe and the buck the agouti coloring and the other doe black like daddy.

Bootsie has kidded previously with 2 sets of twins ,2 sets of triplets and twice with a single. This time I'm sort of expecting twins but who knows, Chief has some dinky babies in his bloodlines!


Tilly is the one with the prolapse and has had 3 sets of twins. She's ok..vet stitched her today. Bootsie is not going to wait for 150 this time! The weather is to be frigid cold again starting on Sunday and she's due beginning Monday, so I know she'll go in the super cold just to worry me!

Had them out in MY yard today, it's not nearly as muddy as theirs is and my goodness she barely had a 8 inch clearance coming thru the 4 foot gate!!! Well if she does have triplets, she will likely give me 2 boys and 1 girl. Her other 2 sets of trips were like that. If twins, one of each but thankfully Chief has a dinky daddy and he himself was tiny at birth just over 1 pound so maybe she does have 3 dinky little Chiefs in there!!

Her udder has increased a little and she is all tucked in under her tail so send me lots of prayers that she goes Monday night! I'm off Tuesday but I'll be sitting with my mom, so hope she goes Monday after 2pm.

Believe me, I 'm a coffee addict already! And I gotta get busy making more kid coats too! I really think she'll give me 3! After 2 Monday but before 10 pm Tuesday would be great! Really nasty bitter cold here now and WINDY , not real worried about that as long as I can get those babies dried off and fluffy!

Sorry I haven't been her to update. I had to take my mom to the ER last night and they kept her because it was so soon after her heart attack (a week ago) they didn't want to chance anything going wrong. I got home last night at 11 and woke up to ALOT of snow so I couldn't even get out to visit mom at the hospital, was talking with her though. All is ok with her.

Bootsie is being a bit vocal and her udder has really filled and her teats are full, ligs are mush and tailhead has dropped, she had 6 contractions in an hour and did eat her grain but not her hay, of course I need to be up for work at 4 am! I'm ready for her babies to come but very sleep deprived with the goings on in the last week. I hope its b4 midnight and I can get a bit of sleep. :coffee:
BABIES COMING SOON.
