    Faith kidded, she had a doe who is HUGE and doing well, and a HUGE stillborn buck. Her owner thought Faith wasn't due for 1-2 months. The little doe is nursing and doing well. Faith is sore and tired, I'll watch her very closely.

    The little doe is wobbly but nursing. I am going to keep a close eye on them. I am going to buy some pure alfalfa today for the new moms.

    Congrats on the doe kid!! Sorry about the buck, though. So...if her owner didn't think she was due for another month or two...who's the daddy??

    LOL I was wondering the same thing. I do think it is the same buck as she is his color. Maybe they tried to breed her but they thought it didn't take?

    Do you have antinum tart(sp?) if you can get some that will help with any rattle in her chest or aspiration.
