    88% Javelin was bred to Rush for purebred kids.
    She kidded 12 days early :cry: , both kids (trad buck and trad doe) were dead by the time i got home from errands, she'd been checked on 2 hours earlier.
    the kids were developed, but I'm guessing their lungs werent ready, really killing me here... long awaited kids here.. :sigh:
    gosh they are so beautiful, what a shame. they were born outside, it's 38 now. in a pile of straw. my kidding shed just got finished today and i was planning on moving them in.

    but i got 1/2 a gallon of colostrum in the freezer, the doe is fine and passed her placenta just now, she was a FF 2 year old.

    I am so very sorry Katrina :( I am glad your doe is okay. I wonder what would have made her go into labor so early? I hope the rest of your kidding season goes smoothly.

    Dang! I know, you really wait on a cross that you just KNOW will be great kids and then something happens! The Vet who came out to check on one of my Preg. Tox. does told me that at 10 days thier lungs were not developed yet, but he didnt say when they would be. Sorry for your loss.
