I thought she had already lost it but I was mistaken. She keeps tricking me hopefully this isn’t a test again. Baby or babies are kicking a lot. She’s also eating everything in her path. Any guess on genders and how many? I think she might only have 1 or maybe 2.

    I’m guessing Twins, one of each. :)
    Go Moonlight! (Maybe she’s waiting for moonlight?)

    image.jpg Just checked ligaments and they’re softer than normal but still relatively easy to find. She’s being more lovey than normal, I’m enjoying this. Also can literally make out a whole baby just by barely putting my hand on her side. It is kicking like crazy. The kids are still up very high too, but I know some of my does never sunk in before labor. Udder could stand more filling too.

    Moonlight’s having small contractions but they aren’t frequent or consistent yet. image.jpg
    Also as far as Ebony goes: Kinda afraid she’s gonna have quads. We’ve never had those before, but we’ll cross that road when we get there. image.jpg
    And noticed some signs of mites or lice on her ear so am going to treat her right away for that.

    Just found Yeti snuck into the buck pen through the fence. He wants to be someone’s herd sire already. He even makes the buck noise.

    Moonlight is killing me! Her udder has tripled in size now. I thought she was ready earlier, now I don’t think so, but she’s just gonna have to stay in the kidding pen for tonight anyways. About to “lose” one ligament but the other is still just soft.

    I know I’m like the boy who cried wolf. Instead the girl who cried Moonlight’s in labor lol. Her ligaments are finally gone though. She’s eating everything in sight wouldn’t be surprised if she ate me too. The kids also look like they’re doing the wave at the baseball game in there. Never seen kids kick so much. Udder can’t get a whole lot fuller. She still hasn’t sunken in though. Maybe she won’t idk. Hasn’t had any noticeable discharge since last night, but had a lot two days ago. Her second due date is the 21st so I have to be patient, but just thought she was bred for her first due date because of her signs.

    Thank you! Have big plans to improve my herd next season via bucks they’ll be bred with. I love these girls!

    She’ll probably have it when I’m gone one day, but as long as they’re healthy I don’t mind coming home to them.

    Oopsies! I was so focused on Moonlight that I forgot Ebony! For some reason I thought Ebony was due a little later, but just checked my dates and she’s due the same time as Moonlight. She is away by herself so I guess Moonlight will be getting a roommate (Ebony is Moonlight’s mom and bestie so it should be okay).

    I’ll need to double check but Ebony’s ligaments seem to be “gone” too. This will be her second freshening. Last year we didn’t breed her because she was too skinny from the triplets she had as a FF.
