    She’s doing fine but she just seems ready, you know? Her ligaments are completely gone as of two days ago. She’s been showing every single sign in the book for the last two weeks the poor thing.

    based on the ligaments alone, she should’ve kidded yesterday. I’m beginning to consider calling the vet. Every other year she hasn’t shown any signs at all so this is making me nervous.

    It certainly wouldn't hurt to have the vet look at her.

    Can anyone give me a brand name to buy? I have 3 FFs and no colostrum or milk saved. I went to Tractor Supply and I saw so many different things called cllostrum this or that. If someone has a good brand they use..please share lol.

    I keep the brand “Save-A-Kid” Lamb and Kid Colostrum Replacer around for those just in case moments but if you can get colostrum from the doe it’s always best. I hope she kids soon. I agree calling a vet is wise especially if you’re concerned. You know your doe best, if she not doing what’s she usually does then yes, call the vet.

    How exciting! My very first kids Born at my new farm are going to be mommies in March so I’ll be excited with you. It never hurts to be prepared. My first suggestion is to get a lamb puller, you may never need it but when you do, you need it right then ...and if you don’t have it you’ll really curse yourself. I saved two kids and mommas with one.
    Here’s one of my favorite charts. Print it out and study it. Hope it helps you.

    Triplets at 8 o’clock last night! Two boys and one girl. The girls name is Alice (means lucky number is three) and she is TINY 6.75 lbs. There’s a big boy, Oscar, and he’s about 9.5 lbs. And the other little boy doesn’t have a name yet but he’s around 8 lbs. The mama showed nothing new all day and I walked in the barn and BAM baby goats! This momma is incredible! She’s low maintenance, low drama, she’s easy to get bred and she gets the job done all on her own. She was licking them off and helping them nurse. She’s had triplets two years in a row now and they’ve all been beautiful. F5743F13-66C1-4B4F-BA42-EE8C7A231CA8.jpeg
