    Woo Hoo!!! Snappy kidded!!!!!! She had quads, 3 bucklings and she gave me my keeper doeling too! : So far, I am thinking at least one buckling is polled. Sadly, I lost one of the little bucklings. :( I am very very pleased with how her FF udder came in. :love:

    Snappy actually kidded on Monday during the day. Of course, she decided to kid while I was at work. My mother was keeping an eye on her for me since I was 45 minutes away. Poor Mom, just had to kid on Mom's watch. LOL, Mom is not experienced in birthing and called me in a panic. I headed home ASAP but was far away. Mom was able to pull it together and get the kids all suctioned and cleaned off with some coaching over the phone. I am so proud of her! She told me she was especially nervous because Snappy is my favorite.

    Now for kid pics. :greengrin:

    My doeling. :love: :love: :love: I can't tell if she is polled yet. Any opinions?

    My poor little angel buckling. :sigh: I found this little guy ice cold, barely breathing, and in an odd position when I got home from work yesterday. I tried to get him warmed up and stimulated but he passed on. Not sure what happened. He was lively and I saw him nurse before I left for work. When he did pass on, milk came pouring out of his nose so my best guess is that he somehow asperated? Poor little guy. :mecry:

    Congrats on the babies! So sorry one passed, it is always hard and it is very frustrating when you don't have a definite why. I love the doeling! I don't see any swirls on her head, so that is promising. Nice capacity on that first udder.

    Cute babies. Sorry about the little buckling. I love your keeper doeling...very flashy!

    Have you named them yet? If not, I think the little doeling wants to start with J or V since that's what is written on her side, lol :)
