    I can't believe it's nearly time again! How exciting!

    We're going on Hope's second due date (she bred twice) because it obviously can't be her first due date that's correct. So here we are, day 140.

    Sorry the abysmal pics, she was being a brat and I didn't have anyone to hold her.

    Looking at pictures from last year, she seems to be right on par. The udder needs to fill more, but it was about the same last year, as far as I can tell. I didn't shave her this year so its harder to see. She went on day 149 last year, two bucklings and a stillborn.

    We're praying for at least one beautiful little :girl: I can keep!

    She's a right spoiled brat. She thought I had a marshmallow for her and tried to eat the camera.

    She wasn't much larger last year, and she had three full sized kids, including the stillborn. So it's bound to be a surprise! I expect twins but I'll wait around to make sure hehe.

    She did an awesome job last year, they slipped out easier than spitting watermelon seeds...hopefully she does the same this year!

    And during the day preferably...in the warm sunshine. :wink:

    No change today either! Ligaments are more firm though. She's going to keep me guessing all week.

    Oh yes! Absolutely.

    I let her and Rudy out for a little while to have a quick snack while I did some outside work. Hope has really plumped up! Her belly nearly drags the ground, she doesn't go out, she goes down! A really deep doe.

    Her udder has some work to do though. It's being slow this year! Maybe she will be like Rudy, and have no udder change this time, until all of a sudden BOOM huge udder twenty minutes before starting to push.

    :roll:
