    Woo! Flicka and Precious will be kidding on Thursday! I'm excited...more Rebel babies...they should be nice! I need to get some pics of them, they both look like they could have trips...but it's only 9 degrees out right now, so pics will have to wait. :sigh:

    Jacque, Why do you induce your girls? Isn't it best to let them go when nature tells them to?

    Re: More kids coming!!!

    Stacey, it is really nice knowing when they will kid. And you can make sure they kid in the day, too. :wink: This is the first year we've induced our girls and it went so well with Fool I think we will do it every time now.

    Lori, we raise our goats on CAE prevention, so we have to pull the kids at birth. We didn't induce Bella this year and she was due on a sat., so Mom took off Fri-Sun because I was supposed to be gone. She didn't kid until Mon. and Mom was late to work. Most of the time I am home, but not always...and next year I will have a job of my own. So it's gonna be very hard to make sure we're here when the doe finally decides to kid..whenever that may be, because we all know how they are! This way we are home and the doe kids on our time. I know several breeders that induce without problems...there is even one that been inducing her does for 12 years.

    Oh and I have some pics of the blimps coming. :greengrin:

    So how many do ya think? This will be Precious's 3rd kidding. She had twin bucks her first time and buck/doe twins last year. I hoping for trips this year and more girls. These will be 3/4 siblings to her first kids that were out of Roulette and they looked really nice. And this will be Flicka's 2nd kidding. Last year she had twin does...she looks much bigger this year. Again I am hoping for trips. :) Oh and you can kind of see in her udder shot some discharge..she started losing her plug yesterday before we even gave her the shot.

    Re: More kids coming!!!

    :GAAH: Darn that Precious...I swear she must not like me! This makes it the 3rd time that we haven't been there to witness her kiddding!! :hair: I thought for sure that we would be there..since we induced her and all...but no..she decided to go at 30 hours. No one got to nurse, though..the kids were still wet when Mom got out there to check.

    So I suppose you want to hear what she actually had instead of me ranting huh? :ROFL: Stacey you were right...trips! :girl: :girl: :boy: too! Woo hoo! Good thing Precious doesn't have any problems since it seems we can never be out there with her. :pray: I am thankful for that...just frustrated...we've never been out there with her and the really iritating thing is we are ALWAYS home when she kids! :doh: I wondered, though, if we'd miss it...she looked quite spiteful last night when we checked on her....like she was saying "I'm still gonna have 'em without you!! HA!"

    I'll get some pics after a bit. Flicka probably won't go for a little bit yet...I still hope she has trips. :)

    Re: Precious kidded!! Waiting on Flicka...

    I think she was headed into labor before you induced her so thats probably why she went "early" congrats on the triplets!!!

    Re: Precious kidded!! Waiting on Flicka...

    Thanks!! I don't know that she was already starting labor..she was on day 146. The time frame is 29-36 hours so she just went on the early side of the time frame. Next year...we'll induce her for the middle of the day..that way when she goes early it will still be daylight! *evil grin*

    Congrats on the trips!! :stars: :stars: and :girl: :girl: to boot!

    So, sorry - just curious, do you do CAE preventative because they have been exposed to CAE? I guess I am just unclear on the reasoning that all, not just you - I just wanted to ask, do the CAE preventative, because pasturizing the milk would make certain vitamins, minerals, and antibodies out of the milk.....

    Just like yo learn new things :wink:

    Re: Precious kidded!! Waiting on Flicka...

    Thanks!! Flicka is just taking her sweet 'ole time. Eating and everything...she hasn't reached the 36 hour mark though, but it's not very far away! 36 hours will be at 11:30 am. Her ligs are gone though and her udder is still filling.

    Allison, we haven't tested for CAE yet...so this is a safety precaution. We do plan on testing this year(and I pray everyone is negative!), but even if everyone comes back negative..we'll still raise kids on CAE prevention for safety measures.

    If everyone tests negative for CAE in your herd- why would you need to raise on preventative method? :scratch: Just wondering! :)
