    8th is Amberley, chocolate buckskin, Due 3/24/21. She was the one with the mite/zinc issue which after an intensive Ivermectin treatment her hair has grown back in around her eye lids!! Guessing single or twins.

    9th is Calypso, RED/white buckskin, polled with blue eyes, Due 4/7/21. Guessing a single for her.
    10th is Madeline if she took. She kept coming back into heat and hasn't again so we will see. She is always super fluffy so she looks much the same, She is due 5/7/21.

    I am very excited. I honestly can't really tell if Grandma Aria has changed. She's always super deep bodied and wide. Almost one month left and we will find out.

    I should also say that Cavatina and Sunny literally just stopped milking for DHIR a week ago so they still have udders from the previous lactation but are drying up.

    No thank you! High 40s here today. I wish it would go back to the 60s though lol I get so motivated to do things when it's sunny and warm.

    I do think this will be our last update before we have kids on the ground.

    Grandma Aria I think skipped out on us for the season. She is large but squishy and she isn't developing an udde nor are her ligs loose. Bummer...

    So first due will be Lorraine and no joke we have a running game at work with how many she will have, down to boys/girls, polled/horned, moonspotted/not. Due the 25th.

    Next would be Hope and Daisy, both due March 1st. Both are FFs and I am excited to see how their udders change over time here. Hope's udder so far has me nervous but she has 7 days which when all know is a LOT of fill time. Her dam (came to us bred) had a wonderful medial, size and shape but lacked support so we shall see. Daisy (whos dam was just bunking here til her owners came back from Hawaii) is actually surprising me, granted like Hope she still has 7 days. Daisy's dam had more of a ball udder, the medial wasn't great but the teat length was decent and she did produce a lot. Honestly, Both Daisy and Hope are a gamble as they weren't purchases but more like sentimental children to us via their circumstances. I did notice that when Hope lays down now she gets a very slight prolapse so we will be watching that. They get free choice alfalfa pellets and the last 2 weeks of pregnancy I have been giving them a tums morning and night.
