    Our little yearling doe NC PromisedLand RB Edita is on 142 today- actually she could be 147 or 142 as she had a 5 day heat, but Im going by the second due date.

    Shes been really uncomfortable over the weekend- mostly laying down, only getting up to go find a more comfortable spot to lay down. Ligaments are softening and udder filling- I dont think she will hold on too much longer- maybe 2-3 days tops.

    Shes not very big, so Im hoping for twins and not a monster single. :pray: :girl: :girl: I have doeling reservations Im afraid Im not going to be able to fill with all the boys we have been having!
    This is our last big kidding batch in May with just one due in June and one in July and then possibly 3 in August (1 for sure- the other 2 the jury is still out if they took or not)
    4/5 of my May kiddings we will be keeping doelings from for ourselves- out of 30 kids born here this year we are only keeping one so far :shocked:

    Anyway- back to Edita. Im hoping for girls, but a safe delivery is most important. She is petite and a young yearling.
    Laurelhaven owns her littermate sister too :)

    I will try to get pictures of her tonight.

    Re: Edita kidding soon! Day 143 today

    So maybe tomorrow is the day for Edita
    Her udder filled this evening too- its pretty tight/hard
    her ligaments are barely there- but low
    she was also doing a bit of baby talking to me tonight


    excuse the clip job- I was so interested in what colors were showing up under all that hair I got a little carried away :oops:

    Edita kidded today- day 144- exactly what I was afraid of
    a monster single buckling.
    I cant believe I finally got him out, he was presented beautifully, but just too big for a petite doe.
    I gave Edita some banamine and going to hit her up with pen and all the other goodies.
    But- she is alive- thank god, lets hope nothing tore inside. It was a VERY VERY hard delivery and I know for a fact she wouldnt have done it alone.

    I do have pictures - just so I had them for size reference. I wont post them though unless people want to see him.

    OH No, are you saying he did not make it? :?

    Please post pictures of him. Have you given mom her Molasses waer and all the loving she can handle? I bet you did.

    He was DOA- the worst part is, I know he was alive when he first started coming, because he kept trying to pull his feet back in.
    But it literally took a good 15 minutes to get him out, I dont know if the cord broke, or he literally was strangled in the canal. I was about 30 seconds away from making an emergency vet call- I thought we were going to have to take other measures to get him out.
    He finally came and I tried to revive him, but he was long gone.
    Ill upload the pictures

    I had a hunch for the past month or so that she was having a single- so I was prepared for this, mentally.
    Edita is just not a big doe- and being a FF- I was prepared for the worst. Though the worst did NOT happen- she is alive and didnt need a C section- or any other means to get him out.

    Ironically- Laurelhaven had the same thing happen with her littermate sister- a big single buck that did not survive. Hmmm- they were from a little of triplet does, so maybe there is some hope for next years kiddings for these girls!

    I am so sorry you lost him. That is sad and very scary!! Poor Edita!! If you have some Arnica (it's a homeopathic, very good stuff and cheap) that would be great to give her. I give it all my does, especially after a rough delivery. I swear it saved a Pygmy doe who had a torn uterus. Helps the tissues to heal and alleviate pain. . . just a suggestion if you can get it.

    Again, so sorry!
