    I thought it was about time to put up our March girls on the countdown!

    First is Betty (Rosasharn J Charleston *S X Steele Ballew Blue Denim)
    and she is bred to Rosasharn GX Caviar *S (Rosasharn's TL Galaxy *S 'E' X Rosasharn FS Ikura 5*D AR1874)

    She is due on 3/16 and this is her FF.

    Im thinking a single, or maybe twins :pray: :girl: :boy:

    Next is Medley (Old Mountain Farm Thor X Rosasharns Hames Scotch 4*D AR1803)
    and she is bred to Dragonfly WC Thistle *S (Rosasharn's SS Watercolour *S X Fairlea Clio 2*D 'E' AR )

    She is due on 3/18 2nd freshening HERE, so at least her 3rd freshening.

    This is a very long bodied big barrelled doe, last year she was HUGE and delivered a huge single :girl: we were shocked, so Im thinking a single again, MAYBE twins :pray: :girl: :boy:

    Last due in March is IO (Kids Corral Pat's Tenor X Kids Corral SF Twinkle)
    also bred to Dragonfly WC Thistle *S (Rosasharn's SS Watercolour *S X Fairlea Clio 2*D 'E' AR )

    She is due on 3/20 and this is her second freshening and has the biggest udder out of the bunch already!

    Last year IO had twin :girl: :girl: I dont think trips are totally out of the question this year, she is pretty low and wide when you see her in person so Im thinking either large twins or small trips- hoping for :girl: :girl: :boy:

    Saturday was
    Betty-140
    Medley-138
    IO-136

    IO's udder is just growing in leaps and bounds, if I didnt know her exact breeding date I would think she was going to go alot sooner! I took pictures today of her for my comparison, but I didnt get a chance to upload them tonight, so will do that tomorrow!

    Hopefully some babies by next weekend :leap:

    Today is:
    Betty-144
    Medley-142
    IO-140

    Betty doesnt look anywhere near ready yet- Im going to hazard a guess at 149, same for Medley, and IO well who knows she looks like shes going to pop!

    Anna had a huge swollen udder last year for a long time before she was ready. She went on 144 last year. This year her udder didn't get as big and she went on 148. She had twin bucks last year and a single buck this year.

    Good luck!

    Re: March Kiddings- getting closer! *Pics Added*

    Well today is
    Betty-146
    Medley-144
    IO-142

    Im still guessing the girls are going to go towards the 150 date. Betty's kid(s?) were kicking up a storm last night, the poor thing was jumping around like :shocked: I literally thought the kid was trying to push his way out of her side. Ive never seen anything like it.
    Her ligaments are getting lower and looser, so she better give us some kids this weekend :greengrin:
    Medley's udder has a ways to go, and IOs ligs are rock solid.

    Oh-I took some pictures this AM- but camera died- will have to upload later

    Re: March Kiddings- Babies soon!! *Pics Added*

    Okay should be babies soon!

    Betty- 148 today
    Medley- 146 today
    IO-144 today

    I would be surprised if Medley doesnt kid today- yesterday her ligs were really low, and today her hind end is mush and ligaments nowhere to be found, no other signs really- her udder has filled quite a bit though.

    Betty's udder filled a bunch last night- ligs low but still there- I still say she kids tomorrow on 149

    IO- hanging in there- huge and her udder is huge, but ligs rock solid, so shes got some time yet.

    Okay I want
    :greengrin:
    Medley :girl: :boy:
    Betty :girl: :boy:
    IO :girl: :girl: :boy:

    :stars:

    Medley kidded around noon with one solid black with a tiny star :boy: and loud black and white :boy:

    Betty got down to business shortly after and kidded around 4:30 with a blue eyed silver chocolate :girl: and a TINY blue eyed chocolate and white :boy:

    Cross your fingers for him- he's itty bitty and was very weak- we have tube fed him twice and have him home (brought his sister too because we didnt want him to be alone) He just stood up on his own for the first time (9pm) so it looks like we are heading in the right direction!

    Will upload pictures later- IO is on 145 tomorrow so even more babies soon!

    She sure did! The doe is gorgeous too- I have to get some pictures up and maybe you can all tell me what color she is, because Ive never seen anything like it!
    Medley missed the memo, oh well, I had wethers reserved, so they are spoken for anyhow.
    We have her daughter from last year anyway. :greengrin:
