    Its hard to believe we're almost there! Yes Anna, Fuchsia & Hallelujah are due 3-4-09 so they're on 141 today and Minuet is on 140. Faith and Meg are due 3-12-09 so they're on 133. So babies will be here before I know it! Our barn progress is nearly complete. We have removed and rehung the siding on the barn so that now the outside wall is on the new addition. I'm so thrilled and eager to get stalls put up so that we can have somewhere to put all the new soon-to-be new moms and their newborns!

    I have yet to clip udders too. I've been so incredibly busy with the work down there that I haven't had time to do clips. I am hoping to get some done today and the rest tomorrow. At least for the first 4 due. Udders are really filling in but the hair tends to make them seem smaller. Don't know why. Can't wait to see them clipped.

    Anna kidded on 144 last year so that's only Thursday!!! I won't know what to do with myself it they kid out early this year. I'm so not ready yet! I've got another load of towels in the wash machine (found a hidden stash in the house of old towels! Ha!!!) So those are going in the bucket. I've double checked supplies but need to triple check before I haul that big bucket back down to the barn. I'm so excited!!!

    Here's my hazard guesses:
    Anna twins, would love a girl and boy.
    Hallelujah twins, she may just have a single in there but I think its twins.
    Minuet had triplets last year as a total shock to me. So I'll guess twins this year but who knows!
    Fuchsia has blown up like a blimp every year and has had triplets everytime. So I will guess triplets.
    Faith isn't that big. So I'll say triplets.
    Meg twins.
    I hope its a doe year!!!! :girl: :girl: :girl: :girl:

    They delivered:
    Hallelujah :boy: :boy:
    Anna :boy:
    Minuet :girl: :girl: :boy:
    Fuchsia :boy: :boy: :girl: :boy:
    Meg :boy:
    Faith :boy: :girl: :girl:


    Think pink!!!!

    Re: Day 141 here at Sweet Gum Minis!!!

    Thanks! I'm so eager and excited. I should have taken the camera down to the barn with me when I went to figure out some stalls, I'd let all the goats in to check out the new addition and I got to admire those tummies and udders well. They're hilarious waddling around and trying to jump up from the new addition. We have to put a step or two in yet. I'm out of funds and don't really have time to run to TSC to get cattle panels, but I have plent of kennel panels (4' high by 8' long) and some extra cattle panel gates etc around so I'm going to fashion my stalls out of those. I have a plan. That's all that matters. Haha!

    Teresa, I can't wait to see what you get too. You've got quite a lot due around the same time too! So much fun! I can't wait!!!

    Yes I'm definitely going to be crazy by the time they're done! Hope they don't all decide to kid at the same time. I've never had so many due at the same time before. Last year I had Minuet and Blossom due on 2-28 and Minuet kidded at 6pm 2-24, Blossom was in labor at the same time, but waited to deliver till after midnight so they were technically 2-25 babies.
