    Trouble kidded at 5am on 2/23 a long legged, long bodied, narrow buckling with a big head :) Then about 15-20 minutes later she had a small doeling.
    Both seem to be doing great right now and are gaining strength. But I'll continue to check on them every couple of hours.

    Then..........

    Me and my oldest daughter went out to check on Trouble and the twins, I think it was close to 9pm. Sweetheart was in the stall next to Trouble, and I noticed her laying down by the door, getting up, looking through the cracks at us, then laying back down...except she was on her knees.
    So....I told my daughter I wanted to check on her.
    We went around and checked on her, and something inside told me to stay put and just observe her. Sweetheart was talking to her belly.
    Then suddenly after like 10 minutes she started to push....LOL

    We were soooo caught off guard, you'd have thought we were crazy, running to get this and that LOL!!! We didn't have a light hooked up to the barn, so my kids were scrambling to get the light hooked up, while I am shining a lil flashlight watching her push out a bubble...
    I think my son ran into the house a dozen times always forgetting something each trip :laugh: It was..... hysterical.

    Sweetheart had a hard time getting her doeling out. She has a wide head, and it took her what felt like nearly an hour to get her out. She was progressing well, so I wasn't worried.
    A short time later and less trouble, she delivered a buckling with a light colored brown/tan head - maybe even a blonde color :)
    Both kids are VERY vocal. OMG you pick up the buckling and he screams like someone is killing him! Silly baby! Mama is so great with her babies, I am very proud of her.

    So it was a busy day!

    Here's some pics. My daughter took most all of these with her camera.

    I'll get more of Sweetheart's kids up tomorrow to share, and get some fluffy pics.

    I have had one hour of sleep since Tues morning. I am sooo exhausted. Going out to check on everyone now, and hopefully all is well so I can get a few hours of sleep before I have to get the kids up for school!

    Re: Trouble and Sweethearts twins!

    Thanks so much! :) They are doing great this morning. Trouble's kids are getting stronger, but we're still making sure they are nursing. Trouble is trying so hard to be a good mama :)

    My daughter has been a HUGE help with delivering and helping with the babies.

    Re: Trouble and Sweethearts twins!

    Thanks everyone! I appreciate it :) My girls LOVE the goats. My son loves them too, but doesn't spend as much time with them. All three of my kids helped last night with Sweetheart.

    Relics - I will email you as soon as I get a chance :) BTW my buck's name is Hopewell's Longstreet

    Snow White is in labor now, so I just came in to get something for me and my 4yo to eat, help her get ready to come out, and all the towels and things. So glad I put them right in the washer/dryer last night.
    Really didn't think Snow White would go today, so this was a surprise!

    Re: Trouble and Sweethearts twins!

    Thanks so much :) And Liz yep, you were right about red babies! I think they might be my buck's first solid reds? I've only ever seen his kids as paints or traditionals.

    Well....as if yesterday wasn't busy enough....Snow White wanted in on the fun!

    Yesterday evening I thought maybe she'd wait until the weekend - udder was filling but not strutted, ligs were still there.

    This morning no ligs, udder full. I knew she'd go today, and was hoping she'd wait until after the kids got home from school.
    She wasn't getting too active, just sporadic, so at 3:30pm I came in hoping I'd have enough time to cook dinner....

    Kids got off the bus at 3:45pm, I sent my oldest daughter out to stay with her and told her to come in if she was pushing out the bubble.
    Maybe 1 minute later she comes back to the door and says she's pushing, and gets all panic stricken telling me come on, she's pushing LOL I told her to calm down and go stay with her.
    Dinner had to wait.
    But for our last doe due, we were all there to see the kids born :)

    She had a really cute :kidred: and then a BIG :kidblue:
    Her buckling has the same color head as Sweetheart's! THank goodness their markings are different!
    Her kids are really strong, and were up nursing pretty fast, and was by far the easiest kidding of the 3 - Snow White wasted no time once she started pushing, and the kids needed little help nursing.

    What's fun also is the fact this is her 2nd kidding, first time she gave us kids that looked more like her -- Kiko. This time they look more like their sire - our boer buck.

    We used my daughters camera again, and they didn't turn out half bad :wink:

    He has a spot on his back, and I think he has some color between his hind legs, but not as much as Sweetheart's buckling.

    Sweetheart's buckling....he's so cute, love the blonde heads.

    We didnt' get anything of her doeling - she kept staying up under mama, maybe she is camera shy? :laugh:

    I hope to get my camera out and get pics soon. I may wait until we bring them outside for a while hopefully on Saturday when it's supposed to be nice.

    Edited to add....

    Our 2011 tally is 4 :kidred: and 4 :kidblue: !!! All 4 of our girls had twins and they each had one :kidred: and :kidblue: :laugh:

    We have one doe left, if she is pregnant which I am sure she is, she'll be due April 26th. So a nice break until then :)

    Re: Trouble and Sweethearts twins! AND SNOW WHITE TOO!

    :cool: :leap: Congratulations! I cannot even imagine a series of days like that with everybody going at once! It's kind of like they scheme and plan it that way. Your babies are just gorgeous, the two legged and four legged ones. If you need to find a home for that red buckling, you know, I could probably help you out with that. :laugh:
    Hope you get rested up!

    Re: Trouble and Sweethearts twins! AND SNOW WHITE TOO!

    Yep they schemed all right! I would have managed some zzz's if her buckling hadn't needed to be watched so closely. It's like...as soon as he really got going where he was able to nurse without assistance....Sweetheart decided to kid.

    We had the nasty weather last night - around 3- 3 1/2 inches of rain, so I was keeping an eye on the creek, but more worried about the pooling water near the barn. I got a few hours of sleep before I got the kids up for school. Then laid down for 2 hours. I had to drag myself out of bed!

    The kids are all doing great this morning :thumb: Trouble's kids are up more and starting to really venture around the stall. They are just too adorable.
    Snow White's kids are all over the place too.

    Sweetheart's kids win the title of noisiest! Nothing more fun though than just listening to the babies chattering back and forth, and with mama too.

    Well, morning chores are done, and I am going to take a much needed nap with my 4yo daughter while she watches a movie :)
    This evening I gotta get my house cleaned up....It's not horrible thank goodness, but I have a mountain of clean laundry sitting on my dryer, some folded in a basket, and now I have about 2-3 loads to wash! If there is one thing I can't stand getting behind on it's laundry! So wish me luck on getting it done LOL
