Today is the day. Maggie is a Nubian x. She’s 4 years old and it’s her first freshening. She’s in kid to a handsome little alpine buck. We just have 2 does and Beastie Boy the buck. I don’t think her sister Kate settled. They’ve been running with Beastie since September.
maggies ligaments are gone today and she’s bleating almost constantly. Her sides seem sunken today so I’m fairly confident it’s on! Wish us luck. It’s my first kidding too. It’s a beautiful sunny day let’s hope for an easy uneventful kidding with some slim and slippery kids.

She passed it and it was I’m presuming the placenta. I guess I expected more substance but then my only experience was my own 🤣🤣. She ate most of it and zero sign of more so I’m thanking my lucky stars we got a perfect single doe. If I can just get momma to stand for her to nurse
