Sarah's due 6-20 just after Blessing. I can't wait to see her udder full. She's a beautiful doe who's finally starting to fill out like I'd hoped. She is beautiful anyway. She's bred to Larkspur who's buckskin with blue-eyes so we're hoping for lots of doelings with blue-eyes! Ha! She's a first freshener. She too is super sweet, my daughter hangs all over her. She's practically claimed Sarah as "her" doe. Gwen being her first doe since she's a bottle baby and Hannah has spoiled her rotten!

Can't wait! The time is ticking away fast! What do you think she'll have?

5-20-08 body shot...


Pictures from yesterday 6-4-08...




She's every bit the size of Blessing in body size, but girth, Blessing does have her beat. ;) This is an odd angle, but you can see both bellies.

Re: Sarah day 135

Actually, compared to Sarah(what a pretty name :wink: ) I think Blessing will more than likely have triplets. Sarah I think twins, girls of course :thumbup: :girl: :girl:

I say twins too! She is a big girl and I bet she will be an EASY kidder, her mom certainly was, and her hips look really wide to me. I can't wait to see her udder full either :stars:

Re: Sarah day 135

Haha its just the sticky tiles. Way back when, it was actually a barn we used for chickens. We kept chicken cages on shelves along the walls. We had a lot of bantams back then. We decided to sell out and then the barn was empty for a while. Our goat herd was growing so we completely cleared it out and turned it into the goat barn.

The reason we'd put the sticky tiles down was to make removal of chicken manure easier. Scraping on wood floors is hard, but tile makes it slip right off. So in the stalls it still serves that purpose though most of it is chipped and missing. One whole side of the barn doesn't have the tiles, just the stall side. They tend to chip up when you muck out with shovels often so its no big deal.

Yes Sarah is beautiful with her spots. She's actually buckskin under all those spots, you can see some on her back and rump that are paler colored than her shoulder spots and neck spots. Her chest shows some of the buckskin markings too.

Re: Sarah day 143

No I haven't taken any. She looks the same too. No real change. Last night I "thought" her ligaments were gone but I felt one really low. So its a waiting game still.

Re: Sarah day 145

False alarm yesterday. No ligaments, listened to her all night. Nothing. This morning she had ligaments again. UH!!!!! Wednesday is the full moon! She'd be on 148 then.

Re: Sarah day 146 false alarm...

Sarah kidded!!! Yesterday morning her udder had doubled and her ligaments were gone. I watched her and by 1:30pm she had kidded.

She had twin :girl: :girl: and both are Blue-eyed!

Y32, name to come. She is a big girl! Looks almost identical to Sarah...



Y33, name to come. She is a character already!



They're doing great and she's a great mother!

Thanks! They are precious. I am so thrilled. The first girl was so big, and the second was almost half her size. I'm just thrilled!
