    i've had susie almost 2 months. her former owner said she's bred for middle of august. she's had a visible udder at least 3 weeks now. how soon do you think she'll kid and how many? they said she's had twins & triplets the last 2 times. also, her hiney was pink when we got her and after having pasture access about a month it had turned black. we also got her daughter & 2 kids and their pink hineys all turned black. they had a stall in a barn and were never outside till they came here. we kept them inside the first month but now the second month they've been allowed out to pasture. is this normal? what would cause the color to change?

    Another pretty girl! Well, the color change would be due to the fact that they are getting outside...it's healthy.
    Her due date sounds about right for her udder size, it will get MUCH bigger when she kids...and I think she'll have 2 in there.

    Yeah - definitely 2 or 3 in that full belly! Just keep watching her for discharge and signs of stretching/zoning out, etc. Good luck!

    we have kids!!! :kidred: :kidblue: susie kidded this aft while we were gone! this morning i thot she might kid in another day or 2 because her udder looked a little tighter than before but still not much bigger than the pic in 1st post, so this is a great surprise! she has a healthy girl & boy but the 3rd kid was dead(at birth i assume). that was another boy. wonder if i could have helped if i'd been there. :shrug: still pleased with the 2 we have. will post pics in announcements asap.
