    Well, Sadie is the last doe of the year that still hasn't kidded. So no more kids until next year, but I have my does kdding earlier so only a 2 month break! Yay! :)

    Anyway, Sadie is our resident bottle baby that I couldn't say no to when a good friend of mine asked me if I wanted her...so here she is! And Sadie's going to be 5 in January, making her our oldest goat so she'll probably retire within the next year or two.

    And she is bred to George, and this will be his first kids here for us! It makes it a little nerve wracking since I have 3 FF bred to him for next year! So hoping all goes well....

    And they are due on the first of November so...Babies soon!!

    George is the buck that you think throws to big babies right?

    5 isn't acctually that old for a doe-i've heard of does kidding at older ages. I hope to hear of babies soon ;-). My kidding season doesn't begin untill February. I still have does to be bred still-all of my doe kids from this year still need to be bred.

    Hope she kids soon for ya! I do NOT like it when they loose ( or almost) their ligs and then they harden again! The one I am waiting on now is doing that, and she is so very large she can hardly walk and when she does she has a very pronounced waddle! so praying she doesn't do that to you!!

    Well, if only they did this on our time. LOL


    I can't wait to see the great pics. HINT HINT...hehe

    I did want to tell you, she is NOT old. I have a 9 year old who kidded to LeLa this year and she is FINE. Very happy and content in her little world. Just my thoughts on it.

    Re: Sadie Kidding Soon!!

    I have had two does kid in a row that still had their ligs until 1 hour before kidding. I went in the stall at 1:00 pm. and the doe would have her ligaments and her udder wouldn't be tight at all then at 2:00 I'd head to the barn to check her and when I opened the door I hear a little kid bleat and the doe would have already dropped one or all her kids!! :scratch:
    And I like to watch the birth and comfort the doe too :cry:

    Re: Sadie Kidding Soon!!

    Well, went out to eat last night and decided I ought to check on her as soon as we got back (about 8:15). So I did, and she was loosing her plug. Nice. Kids dropped, nesting, no ligs and I was sure there would be kids. So I was playing with PL's girls and Meg...And I had my mug of hot chocolate and popcorn sitting in the chair. Stayed there till 1:30 and still nothing. Gave up and went to bed.

    After lunch today, went and cleaned the barn out. She had a bit of discharge...so I hung out in the barn, going about my work. Finally about 3 she had a thick bloody discharge hanging...Got the family and told them kids were coming. Pretty soon came the 1st bubble. She was pushing HARD and we were right there. She was hardly dialated. About 20 mins later, 2 hooves. No head. Broke the water and tried to get the hooves in so we could get the head first, it took the three of us to get him out. Finally got him out though. Massive boy...I almost swore he was dead. 2 of us worked on getting him dry and out of the way and my grandfather delivered the 2nd doe. She had the same issue as the boy.

    poor Sadie's sore but well. Put some molasses in her water and all has been well. Pretty exciting first delivery. I'm just glad I was there!
