    Well I thought I had better get a thread started. Our first doe is due a week from today! We have 8 does kidding this year. We should have had 10, but we could not get Lilu and Mimzy to settle. That, of course, was a little disappointing. Aside from that, I am totally excited about this years breedings and am so ready for babies!! All the following pictures were taken on 2/17.

    First up is Marla, due 3/8.

    Then two are due on 3/12.
    Precious

    Lark

    Then four of them on either 3/14 or 3/15.

    And then bringing up the rear is Piper, due on 4/12ish.

    Mercedes cute little udder has grown to about the size of a small mellon. It is definitely bigger than a grapefruit now. Both Robin and Mercy now have decent starts to little udders and Piper is now becoming "puffy" under there. Marla and Precious are also starting to fill a little bit. Yay! I can't wait!

    Haha I know! :roll: Flicka is the worst, but she has always been an easy keeper. Instead of getting 2nd cutting alfalfa like normal, they've been getting mostly 4th. Not my first choice, but what can I do? Thanks, I am hoping for a better year than last! A total of 12 kids and only 4 were does. Disgusting. :GAAH:

    There will hopefully be several pictures, Bethany! :greengrin: It just might take me a while to post them.

    Thanks Ashley! Yep, Flick is my baby. :greengrin:

    Well, we got the kidding barn all cleaned out today, so that's ready to go. I clipped Marla, Lark and Precious yesterday. I only got a few pictures of Marla and then my battery died. They aren't very good, but here they are:

    Re: State Line Kidding Thread- Marla's up!

    Tomorrow is the day! :leap: Marla is up first and we should have kids sometime between 5am-12pm. Last year she had a really easy delivery, she was eating hay between contractions and didn't hardly make a sound when she popped those kids out! I am hoping and praying for the same and doe kids! :laugh:

    Re: State Line Kidding Thread- Marla kidded!

    Marla kidded this morning at about 6:35 with a cute doe kid and about 15-20 minutes later she had a buck. Everything went smoothly and everyone is doing good. I will get pictures later. These are our first Alimony kids. They look nice so far, but when they can't even stand...it's a little hard to tell. :p
