Our new vet just told us that he gets a lot of problems with Nigerian Dwarfs giving birth! Is he right?!! I have never, EVER heard that, but, he IS a vet so...?
I understand that most folks aren't able to be available 'round the clock. And, even I have issues as I do work part time. I have wired my barn with cameras and I can see the birth stalls from my house, I hope to be able to see those on line soon. I also have a granddaughter that is in cyber school, so she can come out and be here when I work, so I have babysitters available when needed. And, luckily, I work for my husband.We have mini Toggs/ something Dairy mixes-- at least 3/4 Nigerian though. hoping their births go well as they are alittle longer legged and nice and wide than the purebreeds, we are getting a purebreed Nigerian buckling mid November, so any kidding will be late springish or summer....
Would love to guaruntee being there for the birth but I am out of town about 3- 4 nights a week..... so it will be hit or miss, child will sleep with them on the weekends, but that is as much supervision as we are going to be able to offer....
