    I was outside nearly all day today waiting for does to kid. I had just went in to eat lunch, went back out in about 30 min. to find one little doeling just born. She was a tiny little blue eyed chamoisee doeling and I knew more were on the way, so about 2 min. later the doe layed back down and had another beautiful chamoisee doeling with blue eyes. This one was bigger. While the baby is getting it's first breaths another one comes out, a black and white buckling. And when I think we're done one more comes...a black and white doeling! So all in all the doe had three girls and one boy. They all are doing great!

    Now I see another doe laying down have contractions so clean all the babies up and make sure they get some colostrum in them. Their mom is doing a great job. Anywho, so went over to this doe and waited and waited. Finally she had one BIG buckling who barely fit. I had to help this doe a little bit and pull while she pushed because he was huge. And soon after he came out his smaller sister followed. Both are adorable and are almost solid white with bright blue eyes. So clean these guys up a little and make sure they were standing and nursing.

    Went over to one of the kidding pens to find another doe having contractions. So waited around for about an hour and she started having heavy frequent contractions. She pushed out a BIG gold doeling, stood up, cleaned her off, then got back down to business and pushed out another big kid, a black and white buckling and soon after him she had another buckling, he is black with a little white and a few moon spots.

    So we had 9 beautiful kids born today, 5 doelings, 4 bucklings! I am hoping to get photos tomorrow. After everyone was done and kids were standing and nursing I went in and realized what a bad sunburn I had from being outsid all day without sunscreen...great idea! :roll: Anywho, when I get photos will post them here! :wahoo:
