Hello everybody! I can't wait any longer! Hopefully this isn't too early to make my waiting thread, but I'm doing it because I can't possibly wait any more for my first kids to be born!:crazy:

For those who don't know, I have two registered kinder does, Belladonna (we just call her Bella and she's the black doe) and Primula (Prim, she's the tan doe) bred to kid in early March. This will be their first time kidding as well as my first kidding season. Bella's due date is March 4th and Prim's is March 9th. They were both bred to one of my two registered kinder bucks, Phantom.

I can't possibly make it to March!! I'm going crazy waiting!!:haha:

Please excuse the bald noses, it's just from the hay rack. It wasn't a great day for pictures. The lighting was kind of bad and Bella kept doing this:

Smile, Prim! Yep, that about sums up what she thinks of me right now. :lolgoat:

What stunning does. Phantom looks like he got a few tucked in there too. Lol
Oh yeah, we joke about that all the time:heehee:

I am so excited for you and can totally understand not being able to wait!
Your girls are gorgeous!
Thank you so much! I'm super excited (obviously) to see what their babies look like.

Oh my! I can totally relate to your excitement! I hope the days go by quickly for you! I can't wait to see pictures of your cute babies. Bella is so beautiful and glossy, and Prim looks like she has loads of personality. Your buck is pretty, too.
I try to get my girls as glossy as possible. :) Prim's a bit of a drama queen that's for sure.

I'm trying to decide how to set up my kidding stalls when it's time. I think I know what I will do, but I thought I would run it by you guys to make sure I'm not missing something.

My does are currently in one of the two stalls in the main barn which is 10x10 and has a 10x8 porch. I figure what I'll do is I'll divide the stall in half with a cattle panel so that the doe that is about to kid is trapped in the back. That will be Bella first. Then after Bella kids, I'll switch Prim to the back and move Bella out. I have a way to shut the porch area off from the pasture so I figure that will be a good way to keep Bella and her new babies together. There is another 10x10 stall on the main barn that my LGDs sleep in at night, so after Prim kids I can move her into that stall in the day time and then put both the does back together in the single divided stall at night. Here's a diagram I went overboard on.

I so love that you did a whole diagram lol. I did a couple on paper and my husband always looks at me like I'm some insane person.
I think it looks like a great plan.

Bella's getting an udder! (dance) I saw her stand up at the fence today and was like, hmm.... her teats look bigger. Sure enough she feels all puffy down there.:7up: It's minor, but its there.

I can't really see if Prim is developing yet. She's got so much fluff that it's hard to see and I didn't do any feeling because she was giving me the evil eye o_O . I think her lady bits are looking puffier though.

Here are some top down shots. Bella's not very wide. My completely untrained eye thinks she's going to have a single.
