    Ella kidded this morning. A buckling and a doeling! :girl: :boy:

    They are almost identical. Coffee with white stripes and underside, and white socks. :stars:

    Ella is an Alpine, the Sire is a Nubian - he's almost completely black.

    They were born out in the pasture, so no one saw it. One of my boys came across Ella licking them around 10AM -- they had been licked dry by then. Both seem to be in good health and are resting in the kidding stall with their doe.

    Pictues coming...

    Ha! When I clicked on that picture of Ella's udder I said "Oh dear Lord", out loud! Hubby came in to see what happened! LOL Now THAT'S an udder!

    I'm going to seperate the quads from Izzy Friday night so I can get a pic of her full udder. She's feeding those kids by herself, I've tried to get them to take a bottle and no way! They are eating some hay and "helping" mom eat her grain though.

    Sweet kids, I love that color pattern, I want one of those!

    We tried milking her out this morning to give her some relief. She was having trouble laying down -- poor thing.

    Winter has kidded also, I'm make another post for her tomorrow. Two doelings!

    Di - I'll keep that in mind and let you know if one will be 'heading out.'

    Those are a couple of nice looking kids! And for being only half Nubian they have pretty good Nubian ears.

    We finally named them:

    Hansel and Gretel

    German names, like their mother.
