    Our Eowyn has reached day 145 today. So you know what that means… babies coming very soon. :leap:

    These babies will be a bit special to us as they are our first babies from Cornerstone Farm Calah. Our old man Calah passed away on January 2nd. It was a very sad day as he was the first adult goat we have ever lost. We only had Calah for 6 months but during his short stay here he did service 2 does for us. So I am thankful we will have some of his kids to carry on his legacy. I am anxious to see what he left behind for us through these babies from Eowyn. I will more than likely retain one from her or Rosilind and name the baby “Calah’s Last Dance” in honor of Calah.

    His babies will be here very soon now! I will be sure to keep you all posted. I have her in the kidding pen tonight as she is beginning to have some discharge and is VERY vocal this evening.

    I will get a picture of her on my next "baby watch" visit to the barn...

    Re: Our Eowyn is on day 147!!!

    Thanks everyone... and Calah will be deeply missed. :cry:

    It is after midnight so we just hit day 147 and still no babies. By the way she is progressing though I am thinking within the next 24 hours. Or at least that is my guess... :roll:
    I forgot to post that picture so adding one now. I am very anxious to see Calah's babies. I am thinking twins maybe even just a singleton as she isn't near as big as in the past with multiples. I will update as we get closer! :thumbup:

    she looks deep enough for twins. So I say twins


    Love your does name!

    I think that is quite a fitting name you have picked out for the retained doeling.

    I'd say she is deep enough to have twins in there, and I do hope you get that doeling from her :pray:

    She looks deep so I'd say twins or possibly triplets. Faith from the top, front or back doesn't look big. Last year she was the same and had quads. She's deep though as always.

    Re: Our Eowyn is on day 148!!!

    NO... :hair: She is on day 148 and although she seems so ready, we still have no babies. :shrug: I didn't get much sleep last night because I thought for sure she was going to kid. :coffee2:

    Everyone of my does have kidding on an average of day 148 this season. Yet last season they went early and the average was day 145.
    Shouldn't be much longer, she is VERY vocal, chewing at her sides alot, and very slow getting up and down today. When she squats to pee, she stays in that position for a long time before standing upright. So we are close. :shades:

    I don't think I can stand it if she waits til 150! If those kids aren't on the ground soon I'll be sending her some of those "invisible" hugs to squeeze them out!

    Hope all is going well and she's progressing and I really hope she has :girl: :girl:
