    Came home to a wonderful surprise, my doe, Kat Nap, kidded with triplet does! :kidred: :kidred: :kidred: :wahoo: :stars:

    I bought her as a brood doe from Lost Valley, she was not show quality due to a bowed leg from when she was a kid, but she has some great genetics...lots of Goodwood behind her. Before I brought her home, I paid to have her bred to one of their nice bucks and was hoping she'd have at least one doe that I could keep to add to my herd. Can't believed I ended up with 3!!! Talk about a bargain! Her ff udder is outstanding and I am so excited to have these does with her udder genetics crossed with their fancy buck. :leap:

    Just hoping that all three thrive and grow like healthy little weeds...so scary when they are first born and are so tiny like that. Especially the smallest one which was lethargic and chilly when I found her, so I had to bring her inside to warm her up...milked some colostrum from her momma and fed it to her. After that she perked up quite a bit and I was able to put her back out with her mom and sisters. They are all currently sleeping in a little pile under the heat lamp. Will try to get pics up ASAP!

    VERY excited to add these babies to my foundation herd! Also very excited to be having a doe year so far...8 does and 1 buck born out of 3 does. I just have two does left to kid and am keeping my fingers and toes crossed that the trend continues.

    Good news, all three babies made it through the night, even the little one. All were standing and walking around this morning when I went to check. I got some pics and sent them to work with the hubby so he could post them to our website today...will post them here ASAP.

    These were taken when they were just a few hours old so they are kind of scrunched up still. You can already see that the last one, the chamoise, is much longer and more level than the other two. She is a real looker and is one I am definitely keeping. Still trying to decide whether to keep one or both of the other two.
