First up to kid is Aja-Sammati Gone With The Wind. She is a FF Nubian who was due yesterday. I will be posting pics on my Fliker account. Its the same name as my screen name.

Really close behind her is Slyfarms MB San Francisco Bay. She is a 2nd F who is a Nigi.

Then about April 11 Aja-Sammati Callisto is due. This is her second also.

Windy is showing signs of going soon. She is not stringing yet but she can not lay down for more then a min or two. She keeps itching her tummy and stretching. She is also walking funny and does not know if she wants to sit on me or run.

As we are looking at a really bad storm tonight it will be a long night. The good news is it will not be to name babies. I am thinking Stormy and Rainy :)

Re: The Borg's Barn 3 due in next 10 days

Well she did wait. Still no babies. She is 3 days late now.

Callisto who is still 10 days away is making moaning and grunting noise everytime I go out there. I am hoping she is not going to go early she is huge poor girl.

Re: The Borg's Barn 3 due in next 10 days

I have noticed that goats love to eat a lot before kidding -- usually like 12 hours before kidding. So it could be soon :)

Re: The Borg's Barn 3 due in next 10 days

Well we have some action! Windy is in light labor and has started stringing.

Its to get down to 34 degs this morning. We are not there yet but sitting in a 3 sided barn with a goat all night gets vary cold. I just went and grabbed a thermal tarp out of our backpacking gear to put under me and it has really helped. Still cold but no longer to the point of really thinking about dragging Windy into the kitchen LOL.

Re: The Borg's Barn 3 due in next 10 days

At 4:05 she started to panic and climing the walls. I scrubed fast and took a look. I could feel two bubbles trying to come out at once. I pushed one back and helped pop the other. I helped pull on front legs while she pushed and got the one pass the other. I no more had the first ones airway cleared then the other slide out. Less then a min. apart. They are both bucklings but in our family that is great! We needed more pack goats.

Re: The Borg's Barn 3 due in next 10 days

Well all is well this afternoon. Last night was a long one! Windy is out in the pen screaming her head off. I fill so bad. I wish there was another way to do CEA protection. But then again bottle feed pack goat kids are the only way to get a true bond.

Next up is Franny. She has goop on her tail and is looking like she may be droping just a bit. I can not find her due date so will be keeping a really close eye on her.
