    You've got to be super excited! Snowy is looking monster huge, Daisy is hiding hers I think. We have between 5 and 7 days left! I can't wait to see what your kids look like, since some will have the same dads! :grouphug:

    Re: State Line Kidding Thread!

    It will be a kidding boom alright! I've never had more than two does kid on the same day! :shocked:

    Good luck with your does, Patti! Hopefully they will give you does. :kidred: :kidred: You have one bred to Mavrick and the other to Roulette, right? I am so excited though! First round of kids will be two sets of Mojito kids and two sets of Mavrick kids. Then a week later we will have Roulette and Stetson kids. :greengrin:

    Re: State Line Kidding Thread!

    Yes we do. I cannot wait. I think Snowy will go sometime today. We got up at 5am, nothing. Then at 7am when we went out, her tail was very wet and her udder is huge. We gave her a break and will check in a half hour!

    Good luck with your girls! We are so excited to compare our kids to their half bros/sisters. It should be kind of interesting.

    Re: State Line Kidding Thread! Only 1 more week left!!

    Just one more week! I'm so excited!!! :stars: I clipped the four girls that are due first. Don't know what kind of clip you want to call it, because I'm sure it's not exactly a dairy clip. :laugh: It's a I-don't-want-hair-in-my-milk-bucket clip! Without further ado here they are:

    Sorry...some of the pics are kinda hard to see because of the way the sun was shining.

    So, how many do you think they will have? They were ultrasounded, but that isn't always 100%. And especially because they were ultrasounded at around 90 days which makes it harder to tell how many.

    Re: State Line Kidding Thread! First round of kids tomorrow

    Well tomorrow is the day! :leap: Think and pray for uneventful kiddings. :pray:

    Chores right now only consist of feeding hay and some grain and watering. That's all gonna change tomorrow! Going from practically nothing to milking 4 does and most likely feeding 8 kids.... :help: :GAAH: :laugh:

    Re: State Line Kidding Thread! First round of kids tomorrow

    Thanks everyone! I'm hoping for some very pretty kids. :greengrin: And there'd better be some does!!

    Quick update on the girlies before I go to bed..
    Lilu ~ Ligs still there...not much of an udder just yet.
    Flicka ~ Ligs still there, udder has fill from just the evening chores, but has a long way to go.
    Marla ~ She's the one that's got me concerned. :roll: Ligs are pretty much gone from what I can tell...but she isn't quite "mushy" yet and her udder has also fill since chores.
    Lark ~ Ligs still there, udder just starting to fill.

    Alright, it's off to bed for me! Gonna go out at 3am and 5am to check them...Mom is covering 4am and 6am(she gets up then anyways) and I'll be up at 7am.
