    Kidding season seems to be underway. Alot of members are new to kidding and I would like to offer my phone number out to anyone who finds themselves in a kidding emergency that needs a calm voice to take them trough getting a kid out. Put this number either in your phone or in your kidding box. If anyone else want to post their contact info and when they can be called on for help please do so. When an emergency happens there isnt time to come online and see if someone knows what to do.

    Teresa Robbins- 615-289-4418 - Central time zone - available from 5am to 9pm - I have too much experience with getting malpositioned kids out and all have lived. I am no expert but willing to help.

    In case Teresa is not available or it is during the night, http://www.goatworld.com/911/ has a list of people willing to help out in emergencies for their area. They are listed by state and country (yep, have some other countries).

    Thanks, Teresa, I've never repositioned. I believe Brad has with cattle, but no doubt my hands will be the ones going in since they are smaller.

    I am just not feeling right about putting my number on the open forum - if you would like it feel free to pm me and I will happily give you my number to assist in emergencies.

    I have kidded large dairy breeds for years and the minis for going on 3 years now. I have repositioned kids a couple times - including breach and 2 at once. I have assisted in other ways many times.

    again just pm me for my number.

    You can call anytime - but mostly 5am - 9pm PST m-f and 9am-9pm PST I always have my phone connected to my hip - as DH likes to say!

    But seriously you can call at anytime and if you get my machine - leave a message. If I don't recognize the number, I don't answer, but I will listen to the message and call you right back!!!!

And my vet isn't always the best at getting back me, he thinks I know alot about my animals. Anyway I will gladly share my cell number so that you know whos calling :shades: Just Pm me. Thanks Cathy

    Dobie -

    This thread was started yesterday 1/25/09 - so yes - it is still good!!!

    Stacey, what do you think of making a sticky for the numbers so that I can list everyone who wants to participate in an easy to find list instead of the thread. Then when someone wants theirs taken off, we can delete it from the list??? Let me know and I can do it at work tomorrow!
