    Looks like today will be the day(It is my dads B-day today, so this is a nice surprise!)

    Ligs feel gone and udder huge (still not super tight yet though). Leaking a good amount of discharge and is being very needy. IMG_20200522_133607246.jpg
    It's pretty chilly now, 46°! I may have to move her into the barn here shortly. She is just chowing down on hay so far right now.

    She kidded about an hour ago. Everything went flawlessly! Very healthy, active, and large doeling! She is super pretty. Teeth are erupted and she is really large for a being 7 days early. I am thinking she probably took on the December 21 breeding.

    Here is the pretty girl! I will get some more pics once she is settled.

    Everything seems calm this morning. I was a bit worried last night. Rootbeer isn't exactly the best mom yet. I think she will get there though!she spent the night sleeping on one end of the barn and baby on the other. She isn't super responsive to the kids bleats and just goes off and does her own thing. She also won't stand more than 10 seconds while the kid is nursing before she walks away. It's not hard for me to go out and hold her every so often though.

    Here are some pics from the little girl exploring since it is pretty warm this morning.

    Her coat is such a pretty silver! How's the rest of the herd treating her?

    Been a bit busy. Rootbeer and her doeling are doing well. Rootbeer isn't exactly the best mom in the world, but her little girl is fast enough to drink while she is walking and rootbeer is OK with that.

    Butter is on day 143 and Biscuit is on 142. Should have kids any day now, but not much happening yet.

    My sister's corgi had her pups on the 30th. It went very smoothly(With the exception of one pup who is ok now) and oh my goodness they are the cutest things ever! She had 6. 4 boys and 2 girls.
