    Did you tell her she was due on April 1st or something?! Congrats on beautiful babies! & my (human) kids were cracking up at the cat snuggling with the buckling!

    BTW, Poppy's black doe is stunning.

    It was pretty adorable, we have one cat that hangs out in the milk room, and when I came back in she had snuggled up to him and was keeping him warm❤

    Next up is our lone Nubian, Lily, bred to an Alpine for Grade babies.
    Looks like she may go today!
    This is her about a month before kidding last year. She'll be 3 this year, second freshening

    Lots happening this past week! 2 does kidded last Tuesday. Clematis and Twist both had an easy delivery, and a healthy, pretty, set of buck/doe twins!
    Twist's twins, the doe kid has a pretty white belt all around her middle!

    Clematis's twins are looking really good!

    Sunday's kidding did not go as well, unfortunately.
    Poppy's 2016 daughter, Gypsy is a FF 2 y/o this year. This is a breeding I've been very excited about and a little nervous since Gypsy is a favorite around here. Small doe, large kid, nasty head-back presentation. She ended up having to be rushed to the vet for an emergency C-section. Sadly, we lost a really lovely doe kid, but Gypsy is home and recovering well so for that I'm thankful.

    Up next, sometime today or tonight is Rivendell. She is also a favorite, and a yearling FF but hopefully things will go a little smoother with this doe!
