    Re: Coyote Night Acres - Yvonne Day 144

    Yvonne is starting to soften around her tail head and is growing in udder every day. We are not quite there yet with the udder and she still has her ligs, so she might just make it to her due date.

    Udder is getting big on Yvonne. She looks ready to milk, I can't wait till she has those kids and is milking. These FF are killing me, they kick and have small teats. She is on Day 146 today, I'm just waiting for her ligs to be gone one morning.

    Re: Coyote Night Acres - Yvonne Day 147 (ligs are gone)

    Her ligs are gone this morning, maybe just a little bit on the left side at the top when I checked early this morning. Her udder is full full full and we will be on watch very soon! I have a grooming appointment at 9:00 am in the morning hope she doesn't keep me up all night, I need to be focused while I groom. She may have another day to go, but will just see how she progresses today and tonight. If I have to I can cancel the appointment and make it for another day.

    I just went out and took some pics of her udder and checked her ligs again. I could feel a little bit of a soft soft lig on one side, so I'm thinking she won't go tonight Yay! She will probably go tomorrow afternoon or night is my guess so far. She's close and today is 147 so babies soon :wahoo:

    :pray: :kidred: :kidred:


    She doesn't even look prego anymore though, she probably just has a single cause she looks like she already had the kid and is just a milker. Oh well if she can throw me a doe I will be happy with just one.

    Yvonne's udder is very nice, She has really awesome capacity and one of the softest, supple and pliable udders I've ever had the chance to touch. Her teats are just the right size for comfortable milking and not too fat or skiny. Honestly I would love to put her udder on all of my doe's.

    That's my opinion on it though, I'm still learning.

    I was told by a fellow breeder that she lacked attatchments, so I don't know

    Re: Coyote Night Acres - Yvonne Day 147 (ligs are gone)

    Agh!!! Ligs are gone gone tonight, I think she's been working on softening all day and this evening they are gone no where to be found. She doesn't look like emenent labor or anything happening anytime soon, but the udder is tight and ligs are gone. I'll keep a watch on her tonight with the barn camera. She ate her grain good today and she's munching on hay like normal, so we wait and hope she doesn't follow the doe's code of honor to seriously!

    :coffee2: So no kids last night. She had me on watch though, she was breathing faster and heavier than I've ever seen her doing at night. A couple looks at the tummy and scratch her tummy, but that was it.

    About 11:00 last night thunderstorms rolled in, so I just thought yep this is gonna be the night. I caught my sleep where I could get it and maybe take a nap this afternoon when I'm done with my grooming appointment. I really don't see her making it another night and we will keep watch today also.

    Around 3:00 this morning she decided she was no longer going to lay down and she's been like that for close to a few hours. Thunder storms are still off and on along with the rain.

    :sleeping:

    Sounds like she is close! I remember my doe that kidded last month wouldn't lay down for hours either leading up to her kidding.

    :stars: We have kids!

    She had started nesting this morning, I watched a little. By afternoon she was starting to show signs of contractions hitting so I camped out in the barn. Around 3:45 she had them, first was the little girl :wahoo: (looks just like momma with a little frost) then a few seconds and she was pushing out came the boy, upside down and one leg bent back but he came out smoothly. The little buck looks like daddy. :greengrin:

    We pulled the buck (going to sell as bottle buckling) and left the little doe for momma to raise.

    Pics coming soon! Camera went dead on me and have to get that boy settled in up here at the house.

    Wooohooo I'm so excited I got my little girl :dance:

    No staying up all night for me! Yaaahooo

    Congratulations! And, Yvonne deserves a special treat for being so considerate to not make you wait up all night! :p Can't wait to see pics.

    BTW, that is an awesome udder!

    Well, would love to post pics but can't find my battery charger, so I'm gonna have to get some back up batteries to use untill I can get it found just to upload to the computer. We ended up bringing the girl up to the house too, Yvonne came out of a dairy and has never actually raised kids before. She's more interested in cleaning the fluids off of herself at this point. I'm going to try to get the kid bonded with her tomorrow and see about getting her back to momma, but I can't risk the kid not getting moms attention. Both kids are doing well, still waiting on momma to pass the placenta but she's doing well also. Milked her colostrum for the kids she gave me over a half gallon. Yay, I'm gonna get some colostrum back logged in the freezer from her.

    This is the buckling, we were going to sell him but after going over our herd goals we decided he would be more of an asset to keep for breeding.

    Yvonne's doe We have great expectations for this girl.
