We bred a lot more does than normal this year but I think only a handful are pregnant so we'll see. The first doe bred is Kissimmee. She is due December 29th but showing like she's due a bit closer than that. An udder is already forming but I don't think there's any milk yet and she acting very uncomfortable. First freshener so I don't know what's normal for her yet. Excited to see her kids!
Today I set up the kidding pen. Kissimmee is due in a week but I think she'll wait to go on the 31st a full moon. I tried to give her a kidding hair cut but she would not allow it. She's gonna be a real challenge to milk :bonk:. Now I'm sitting in the kidding pen with her feeding her treats so that she gets used to it all. She's definitely a nervous nelly and there is a lot going on. I don't think I'll actually put her up in the pen overnight until she shows signs of labor.
