    yes Misty is still just hanging in there with loose but not soft ligaments!

    Her udder is bigger and tigher if that could actually be! she could easily handle twins or triplets with that udder.

    I know what you mean- I personally don't deal with kidding well- very stressful for me but I just love the kids so I keep at it.
    I hope everything goes smoothly for you- and lots of cute pictures follow.

    Flicka will go before dark....and I'll throw triplets out there....just because you would rather have twins...oops, sorry Stacey.

    I know you're busy cleaning out, any chance of pics of their udders?

    Stacey, I think you will be in for a long night. Flicka is strutted and dropped...a bit posty too. She will definately have babies for you before Misty. I do hope and pray that you can be with her for this, she looks like a doe that wants company during labor.

    2 more girls :girl: :girl:

    so triplets from Flicka and she is adopting Kitten

    3rd kid is very weak but making progress. We will be up for a long while yet :ZZZ: :coffee2: Came inside to get something to milk Flicka with adn some syringes. We dont want to repeat Kittens experience so I am doing this all outside.

    (I know no one is going ot read this till later but I thought you all might enjoy a little play by play so to speak)

    all kids were positioned right and she is mothering 3 of the 4 -- weak girl she is having a hard time focusing on.

    Re: Ficka's turn - contractions at 1:00am kidded 1:30, 2:30 & 3

    little girl is doing better - got 12+ccs of collostrum in her. She is trying to stand, very weak pasterns, gave a couple ccs of seleium gel, came inside for the nutri drench.

    Flicka is so tired, Kitten is too

    it is a bit chilly so the kids are showing signs of it.

    not going to church tomorrow - will call the cordinator for my sundayschool class and tell her I won't be able to make it.

    This is quite an all nighter 4:25am right now

    little girl doing very well at 5:00am

    mom says I can take her to bed with me

    I got 1 ounce+ in her already of collostrum she is trying and successfully getting up on her own - hasn't walked yet, curious to nurse though doesn't suck, does take the syringe very well.

    ok off to be with me - pictures in the morning but to give you some clues

    first born - boy, all black but spot on forhead and ears

    second born - girl - cou clair --- tane on front black on back

    third born - girl - cou blanc - white in front black on back (no white stripe like minuet has, all black)

    :ZZZ: :ZZZ: :ZZZ:

    Happy Mothers day all :stars:
