  4. Poor Pepper her udder keeps getting bigger and bigger. Her udder is bigger then last year. I have 1 possible due date but could have gotten bred later. Not sure when I should consider inducing her. 8ED5782E-97E3-408C-B13C-A72700FA238A.jpeg D65351F5-84F7-4495-B62A-F5AB254C6606.jpeg 900380E7-EBB6-49BA-B570-65AD549F382F.jpeg
     
  5. Pepper went this morning at 4:30. Had a big single buck kid. I have no idea who the dad is. To me he does not look like a pure Nubian. So I am leaning towards Boer/Nubian cross.

    Aww, what a sweet little face that boy has. Congrats. Hows Pepper's udder doing?
     
  10. Her udder is still big. I milk about a quart of colostrum out of her around 9:00am to help relieve some pressure. I will probably milk her tonight.

  12. I have been putting on Red Velvet opals red doeling on Pepper to. Opal for some reason day after having her twins did not want her red doeling. So I have been holding Pepper for Red velvet to eat. I do believe she has learned to sneak feedings. Because I am seeing her belly full more often when I go down to the barn. Besides that everyone is growing nicely and doing great. We got over a foot of snow possibly 2feet

  13. When doing chores this morning I found Robin with some discharge. She is not due till March 10th. I am hoping she is not in labor. I moved her into the kidding barn to keep an eye on her. She is huge this year.

  14. This is her first time being bred to Chestnut. She has never been this big before.

    Coco isn't due until March 5 or 6, and she has been having some discharge for about a week-ish now.
     
  16. I just not sure if it mucus plug or she is actually going to have her babies.
