    Well, you all are probobly irritated with me by now about Dora.... but every once in a while I would mention about Snow - my registered Nigerian who is bred to Joe Dirt. She is the only "confirmed" Joe dirt girl (possibly one other but will have to do DNA on the kids). Anyway, as you can see by the ticker, she was due 24 March - so just about a month.

    I had made mention last night that I was thinking about shaving her udder as it is was getting bigger and I wanted to watch it more closely.

    Well last night, I checked on Dora about 10 pm. Snow was all nestled down and Dora was pacing.

    This morning I go to the barn, Dora is not around, call her, she comes from outside - mind you it is SNOWING - and talking a bit. I go to open the door to let her out for her grain, and look down to make sure snow is out of the way (she beds down right where the door opens to, and guess what I find -

    A LITTLE ONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :stars: :stars: There was a little one all curled up under Snows head. I start looking around - TOTALLY confused and half asleep. Well it looks like a Nigi, but NO ONE is due yet and Dora is still pregnant......

    Well Joe and Snow blessed us with a little buckling. He is just adorable. Now, going back to my records - DUH.... I should have known there was a chance of her kidding now - I don't know what I was thinking and I feel so dumb!

    Anyway -

    Introducing our first born for 2009, a Joe Dirt Baby, SLR Minis Joe Dirt's Hemi

    So I bet you are asking WHY did I name him Hemi .......

    Well, you all know that Joe got his name "Joe Dirt" because of the movie and his hair do that looked like Joe Dirt... Well in the movie - all Joe Dirt talks about is his Hemi streetrod (theme for the year is hotrods). Well then when i went out there this morning, at less then 12 hours old he is already bouncing a bit and trying to run - there is going to be NO holding this kid back!

    I'm a bit obsessive when it comes to paperwork, dates and records. So I don't usually miss a step when it comes to things like that. I check ligaments when does have udders anyway. Watch them in the pasture and have never had a surprise kidding.

    However I can see that happening especially if you forget about a small "possible" date and then knew a doe was really well bred at a later date. So that's not a surprise there.

    Congratulations!!! :boy:

    Well her order has changed a bit - but I am still extremely pleased - Hemi will be going to his new home with Daisie Mae and she is having Daisie Mae bred to Blue. So I am very excited.

    no, not from Snow, unfortunately. I am going to see if Trin has his kids also and if so, maybe one of them. But really, I don't see a need for 3 reg nigi bucks when i want to cut my herd down a bit.

    Ok - I must admit - DH came up with hemi. I was looking through my list of names on the way to work this morning that I have made up for this years theme. I asked DH what type of car it was in the movie. He said Hemi - well I KNOW it is a hemi motor - but the car-----

    So we decided Hemi.

    Oh and Hemi was 4 pounds 3 oz when I weighed him this morning.
