    Marie is one of our homebred does. Her dam is my top producing Nigi, she milks 4 lbs a day. Her twin sister, Janie, kidded in May with twins.

    Marie is bred to Billy Boy Blue. I'm guessing she has a single. She's due July 24th.

    She is looking good also. She is so sweet looking. I would say a single also.

    I refuse to discuss sexes! :hair:

    I am really proud of Janie and Marie. It's fun to have something you delivered after planning a breeding then come full circle and deliver!

    I can tell already I'll be happy with Marie's udder. Teats look to be more plumb than Marybelle, their dam's. It doesn't look like either Janie nor Marie inherited Marybelle's big teats, but they have a good length to them for handmilking.

    Ligs are softening, belly has dropped! Today is day 140 =) and she is so very uncomfortable. She spent most of yesterday under one of the fans in the barn.

    :angry:

    I guess she recycled after the breedings I witnessed...or we're on day 154. Ligs coming and going. She MIGHT be hiding two in there, dunno.

    We're here to wait too. I bet all these girls will get together some day and write a book about how funny it is to watch the humans watch them and how impatient/crazy we are before kidding.

    Hmmm

    She has a clearish stringy discharge with the slightest amber color, muscles have dropped on her rump, still has ligs. Today according to the breeding I saw is day 157. Could it be? :hair:

    Hmmm

    Well I locked her back into a stall under the cam, regardless...we shall see.
