    Yes you get very used to it the more you see it, but for me its always exciting. Wait til you need to assist someday. LOL. My daughter was meant to hold a goat down one time and she grossed out.

    Congrats on the kids... they are soo gorgeous.

    Beautiful kids, congrats! I always find it funny the different things people think are gross. Like birth doesn't gross me out at all, I just think it's the most amazing thing... I've seen a person, goat, and sheep give birth... but earthworms, now that's gross!!

    :stars: congratulations :stars:

    It is kind of gross, but I love goat births. The rest of my family gets grossed out and can't believe that I will actually touch the kids when they are all slimy. Though most of them will come and watch. My mom always comes right before the kids are totally out, she doesn't enjoy watching births, even though she gave birth to nine of us! She claims thats different because she can't see that end of it which is true.

    Woo hoo :stars: one of each!! And very flashy too!

    You'll get used to the "gross" part of birth, when you realize that yours are the FIRST hands to touch a brand-spanking new life you tend to not see the messy part. And...a little tip, until you can stomach the miracle of birth a bit better, don't have a white doe deliver....the mess appears 10x worse! Even having a white kid born, the mess is even more visible.

    LOL... When my girls started giving me babies 8 years ago, I didn't think anything of the mess...couldn't really see it on dark gray agouti girls, then when I saw Angel born I was like "eewwww"...there were colors there that I never saw before. When Angel herself delivered, I finally got to really see the evidence of birth on my white girl..not for the squeemish!

    They are gorgeous. It's true that if you keep doing it eventually you will have to help. There is lots of great info, with pictures, on the Fias Co Farm web pages about kidding.

    Beautiful. They look like calico kitties. I'd add one to my herd in a heart beat. I'm always looking for new patterns/colors.
