    Well, the countdown is on for Claribelle! I am really excited to see what this girl is hiding in there. I need at least two does to fill reservations but I also have a waiting list after that, so more would be nice. :p She had triplet bucks last year so if she only has one doe, then I am happy. :)

    These photos were taken I think two weeks ago.

    And these photos were taken yesterday. Still need to get some more udder shots, it's been gradually filling but not very fast. . .

    Today is 142 for Claribelle and her udder has grown A LOT and is now tight. She does not feel "mushy" enough yet. She progressed very fast last year (or maybe I just didn't notice she was in early labor). Will not let me touch her and I don't want to restrain her too much and freak her out. Babies soon though!!

    She kidded early this morning. I don't have much time to share details or pics but she had quadruplets; three bucks and a doe. One buckling was sadly stillborn but the other two bucks are doing great. The doe had a little shaky start but is doing well now. Good-sized, healthy babies. The bucks are LOADED with moon spots!! One has gray moon spots all over his back, really cool. Haven't checked the girl good for moon spots - just focused on getting her going.

    Pics coming later today!

I can't wait to see pics! I hope mama is resting comfortably, every time I see those pics of her big belly, I get goose bumps! How the girl could walk with all that...LOL :)
