    Well since kidding is only 5 days away for me(yikes!) I figured I better start a kidding thread for the girls :D

    Ok, so here are the dates, we have:
    Kadi due next Wednesday
    Caramel due next Thursday
    Molly due Friday
    Mary due the following Sunday

    and my brother has:
    Dixie and Little Linda due on Friday
    and Maggie due the following Saturday(she's HUGE!!!!!)

    Lets see, as far as the girls go, David's three are huge, I don't know about ligaments, they are very uncomfortable and their udders are huge.

    My girls, Kadi isn't bagging up yet, and her ligs aren't softening much, same with Caramel too. Molly's udder is starting to fill and her ligs are softening, and she has already separated herself from her two daughters. Mary's ligs are soft, her udder is getting bigger and she is very uncomfortable. She looked like she had a big fight going on in her belly this morning :lol: She looks like a sumo wrestler.

    I honestly don't feel ready for babies yet, LOL I don't think I ever will :p

    Nope, Caramel usually gets her udder the day before, and Kadi has never kidded on this farm before so I have no idea what her routine is :)

    Well nothing new so far. Molly's udder seems to be getting a little bigger. When I came out to the barn this morning Kadi was sssssooooooooooooo happy, she was stargazing, and had this huge smile on her face. She might be slipping into la la land :lol: Her udder hasn't gotten any bigger, but her ligs feel softer.

    aww I can't wait for the Munchies to go! I LOVE BABIES lol I've got a doe in la-la land. She just lies there staring at the roof - yesterday she stuck her head on the divider and just stared at Desi's babies - never moving just watching. :) (Reminded me of after I had my son - those IV's had me in a different place just gazing too) :)

    Caramel is going to go soon!!

    Caramel's udder has doubled, still not strutted, and her ligs are soft but still there. She's always in la la land, but she was pretty talkative this morning and didn't eat her food. I've never seen her kid, the first time she kidded she did it on her own without assistance.

    I have a book analysis I have to get done today, she probably won't let me though :lol:

    Caramel kidded!!!

    Sorry I couldn't get on yesterday, the internet didn't work.

    Caramel kidded with triplet bucks!! :p :doh: LOL She had bucks her last kidding too. I'll get pics uploaded later, but every single one of them look EXACTLY like Caesar. So much for hoping for that color variation :lol: If you go to the herdsire page on my website, I have baby pics of Caesar, they look just like him.

    Molly was acting off last night so we put her in the kidding pen, her royal highness just wanted to be in the kidding pen so she could be special :roll: I think she might go today though, she's a by the book kidder.

    Still nothing new on Kadi or Mary.

    And since I didn't get that book analysis done yesterday I'm pretty sure Molly won't let me get it done today either. :shades:

    Well Dixie kidded by herself with twin bucks, we were hoping she'd have a girl to keep her company though(her mom died when she was a kid) They are just red headed white bodied boer kids. Both Hustler's :wink:

    And Molly kidded with quads. She had 3 boys(all look like Caesar) and she had a chocolate/mouse grey stillborn girl. I was so upset when the girl was born, she had been dead probably a day or two. She was my fav color and Caesar's first daughter :tears: This was my first stillborn kid that I've had. Well, RIP little angel :angel: :sigh:

    I never want quads again(never did in the first place) although, I should say that since Maggie looks like she has five :shocked:

    LC3(aka Little Caesar #3) of Caramel's had to be a house baby, she doesn't have enough milk for 3 kids, so he's a funny guy running around the house :p

    Kadi and Hazel are the only other two does that I have bred to Caesar, so PLEASE pray they have girls :(

    Kadi isn't doing anything new except driving me crazy digging craters in the barn, she's happy though :)

    Mary isn't doing anything new either, although she looks pitiful.

    I'll try and get pics tonight, if things work out, I probably will end up getting them to everybody at the end of the week.

    Full moon is tomorrow night :p

    Sorry I wasn't able to give an update yesterday, on Tuesday night Kadi kidded with one HUGE buckling :doh: He's a pretty guy though. Since it was a hard kidding, mom doesn't want to breed Kadi anymore, so I might keep this guy for a while.

    Mary might go today, she didn't eat this morning, she's dropped, and her udder has gotten bigger. She's a morning kidder usually.
