    Don't have much time to talk...Just home long enough to grab a shower...

    Josie and Venus are both on 147 and it looks like a race! Won't be long before we have babies!!!! Josie was starting to dialate @ 9AM this morning and has been progressing nicely. I'm guessing kids tonight or tomorrow from her! Venus is really swollen (along with a discharge) and miserable, those kids still kicking!

    Wish me luck, I'll need it! Just watch them both start kidding at the same time. :hair: :coffee: :coffee:

    Oh I've had that happen before!!! LOL

    2 of my does (one at day 149 the other on day 144) started pushing at the EXACT same time. One was a first freshener and the other was a doe I always have to watch because she kids out in the dirt and it was FREEZING outside. They were in different kidding pens about 1/4 of an acre away from each other and I had to run back and forth... first doe delivered a kid... I helped clean it right as I heard my FF doe start hollering.... went running over there in time to realize her kid was stuck... pulled her kid started drying and then went back to the first doe as she delivered her 2nd kid... cleaned him off and put them in the warm barn! Fingers crossed that doesn't happen to you!!!! Let me tell you... I needed a drink other than coffee that day!!! :ROTFL:

    Day 151! Venus kidded with triplets!!!!! 2 bucks, 1 doe. First buckling was stillborn caramel and the doeling is tiny and doing awesome! She is a red caramel which are really hard to get and I am just so happy!

    The last buckling is a handsome medium brown caramel. He wouldn't stand but thanks to a few goat forum people's help we have him in the house and thriving! We were sure he wouldn't make it. He wouldn't nurse from mom so we brought him in the house for a little bit and took him back out to momma and she wouldn't take him back and he wouldn't nurse. So he's in the house and is doing AWESOME! :) I am really glad!

    As for Josie she looks like she'll go anyday. I'm thinking twins for her.

    As for names I couldn't decide if they should be named God/Goddess names (after Venus) or Harry Potter (after George (RIP)). So for the boy his name will be Apollo and the girl's is Adromeda. (I am also sticking to the A theme)

    Well, I guess I'd better be off to eat and get back to holding Apollo. Hopefully he's out of the woods!

    I'll get some pictures tomorrow morning coz my camera batteries died. :wink:
