    Our first doe of the season is due today and is in early labor! No pushing yet, but definitely not comfortable.

    Can’t wait to see what she produces and how her udder develops. Second freshener.

    Two bucklings! She did great. Both dried off, cords tied and dipped, and both managed to find the nipples. They’ll both be wethers unless her udder is much improved from last year.

    Took them outside for a few yesterday. They’re starting to get very bouncy!

    Katie just had twins. Buckling and doeling. Really hoping both are polled. May both be keepers! Their sire is the buck I had mite issues with and they’re the only babies he’s siring this kidding season. He’s really nice so I’m really excited about these two.

    Thanks! We’re at 13 right now. Planning on retaining 5 (2 bucklings, 3 doelings) and everyone else has deposits down on them already except for 2.

    Sprinkles is getting irritated with 5 babies fighting over her udder so I’ve taught her 3 doelings to bottle feed. I’m having to milk her out when she’s not wanting them to nurse. The boys must be getting enough as they won’t take a bottle and are still growing like crazy.
