    I'm glad they've got their coats coming in nice, because we're having a freeze tonight. And yesterday it was 80!!! Can you believe it?

    I wouldn't be surprised to see trips out of Pepper or Indy again. They both had trips last time.

    Indy's britches are the cutest. They all look a bit rough to me, I think I need to adjust their minerals or something. I'm going to try adding BOSS as well.

    I think you are right with expecting multiples from Indy and Pepper....though Hope might surprise you with twins. Each have very nice looking udders coming in too..I can't wait to see them full!

    I sure hope Hope gives me my doeling(s) this year. She had twin bucklings last year, and twin bucklings (and a stillborn) the year before. She is the epitome of what I aim for. Excellent hooves, easy keeper, never sick, worm resistant, a decent size and a good milker. So I want to retain her daughters!

    Come on Hopie, gimmie some girls!

    I love their coats, they look soooo warm! Indy looks sooo deep, does she waddle when she walks? hehe... Our first doe due at the beginning of Jan is deep and is really starting to walk funny, poor girl!
    Anyway, so excited for your upcoming kids, here's hoping Hope gives you some does!

    Oh yes poor Indy!! She comes from a line of does who produce huge multiples. She was out of quints herself, and had triplets as a FF. And she's a small girl so that belly nearly drags the ground. She has a nice little udder though and milks out well.

    Hope's had some slightly discharge here and there...I wonder if she's going to make me wait until her final due date like last year :p

    Hope's udder has really filled. Maybe she won't wait until the last minute this year, lol!

    Indy has a nice udder. Pepper's could use some real filling but it's getting there.

    Lots of active babies rolling around in tummies, I love it.

    see if any of them have a buck odor between the horns. If so then possible baby boy.

    LOL! I did today. I sniffed all three of them!

    They all smell like...goats hahaha. Nothing else. No buck smell. I have a sensitive nose and only smelled vaguely damp goat. (It's been raining a bit today hehe)

    All three are very miserable girls. Well except Hope, she's her normal spoiled self.

    All three have very loose ligaments. Indy's are nearly gone and Hope's can barely be felt. Hope's udder has tightened some, Indy's is nice and full, Pepper still needs to fill.

    I had a dream last night Hope gave me the most gorgeous doeling. Think it'll come true? She prefers to go into labor around 3pm so we'll have to wait and see I guess!
