    Lily is my last doe to kid this year and she looking pregnant :love: She usually has twins :kidred: :kidblue: and I believe this is her fifth kidding :scratch: Her poll doesn't smell bucky at all and never has, but if she has :kidred: :kidred: I'll be shocked. I'm thinking she is having a little copper deficiency going on right now, her coat has a red tint and it wasn't tinted red last year.

    This year has been full of surprises so I wouldn't be surprised if she decided to shock me this year.

    She looks just like my doe, body-wise, who kidded two days ago. But, they never stick to a real strict formula as far as how they decide to do things. My last doe to kid, Dakota, has a little red tinge going on. I had a black horse that had the same thing. Only in the spring/summer, and it got more red each year. It was due to the sun bleaching the fur.

    Her kids have dropped and her tailhead has *risen* her udder is fuller too. :dance:



    Could be, but I gave my goats a mineral block 2 months or more ago and they have barely touched it (I don't think they like it). So I am thinking I need to go get her some loose mineral.

    Lily Kidded on her due date with..... :kidblue: :kidred: The buck was born first and man hes big 4.5 lbs.. He's got rolls of skin on his neck hes so chunky! The doeling was born with a little trouble she had both front legs tucked under and her head tucked back. It took me a little bit to find the head, I thought she was breach at first, but when I got her legs out they were front legs not back :chin: So I search around and found the head. Man its hard to turn the head in to position. Its a good thing she was only 2.5lbs. other wise I would of had a harder time getting her out. I had to swing her to get her lungs clear so she could breath, I wasn't sure she was going to make it :tears: but thankfully she made it. :leap: Both have blue eyes :love:

    Pictures soon!

    Congrats!!! Sounds scary with the doeling, but also sounds like you did a great job getting her out, and getting her breathing! The little buck sounds adorably chunky! Can't wait to see some pics of your new kids!

    24 hours old and he's already practicing his stuff on his sister! He is pretty big 4.5 wasn't exact, I think he's weighs a little more he didn't sit still on the scale. He also was born with horn buds!

    Congrats on helping out. Good thing you were present. I had one in that exact position this year. Front legs and head back. It was confusing, and you are right, it was really hard to get that head around. My girl had a really hard time getting her neck straightened out and had to be syringe fed all though the night to get her strength up, but she also made it. Good job, and they are darling. :)

    OOOOOHHHHHHHHH!!! BABIES!!!!!!!! So adorable! Love that little doe!

    She should have a name like her momma. Flower Petal? I love that name, it seems like it would suit her. Because a petal is only a small part that makes up the beauty of a flower, and shes small. :)

    Flower petal is a good name! I like:) I named her last doeling Rosebud. So, I was trying to think of another flower name that I like.
