I feel like the BIGGEST idiot right now. Another blonde moment for me for sure, even though I'm brunette.

Here's the thing. My does were bred on September 02 of 2007. I typed in September 20 2007 in the little pregnancy calculator by accident and wrote down the due date as being February 19, 2008. Today while I was cleaning the barn I noticed my Madeline sitting in the corner softly baa-ing. I started to walk over and the first thing I see was her udder! I squat next to her and feel her ligiments. GONE! I went back to my office to check the date and it says Feb. 19 so I continue to work and notice her still keep an eye on her. Her eyes are just about to pop out of her head and she's pawing the ground, getting up and down, up and down. She also is arching her back everytime she gets up. (are these minor contractions?) I then decided to run up to the house to make sure I had the dates right and wah-lah the does are actually due on Tuesday!! We are having a warm spell here so that good! I think Maddy is going soon!! Hoping for a colorful girl!! Pray for me!! This is the first birth this season and the first I've actually gotten to watch!!

My friend and I came up to the house for about an hour because we thought she would go tomorrow. We went down to feed grain and then let her out of her pen. She went to the barn door and started pushing. My friend thought she was just constipated because everytime she pushed she pooped. I thought the same thing but then I noticed she was streaming. Within 5 minutes she had two beautiful colorful boys on the ground. She's a great momma and let them both nurse for a few minutes. Pictures will come in a few minutes.

First Boy Out-

Second Boy Out









The white boy has a few black and brown spots. The other is brown with TONS of white spots.

We are going to use the Greek/Roman god theme - white boy s Zeus and brown is Hercules
