Kidding is just around the corner!

Kidding building has been cleaned out, some cameras going up.
Kidding supplies ordered online, need to pick a few more things up and get the play pens setup. :) Newborn kisses are right around the corner :inlove::inlove::inlove::inlove::inlove::inlove::inlove::inlove::inlove:

Day 145 is 1/24 for Berlin, Lemon Drop (bred to Kiegh) and Ruthie (bred to Charms).
Drops and Berlin will be FF. So excited to see these udders. Berlin is a daughter of Ruth, my foundation doe. She has two full sisters (born 2016) who have already freshened- both really good does!

Berlin- baby pic. Trying to figure out where I have her yearling pics ???

Ruthie (SG JNR Homestead Ruth 1*M AR VEEV 89 @6-03)! This pic was taken Christmas day I believe. She's got a load in there! Please excuse the mud... we had several days of rain!

Thanks all! I am excited :)

@SalteyLove Yep, kids will be bottle fed. We have a (clean) tested herd and don't do CAE prevention, I just prefer bottle raising. We may co-parent with a doe or two later in the year.

Thanks all!

Snapped a pic of "Strawberry" earlier today :) She's a F2 Mini Lamancha, she'll be a 2 y/o 2nd freshener. Due on her own birthday! 2/21! Love this little doe. Thinking twins or trips this time.

Thanks!

So we took Millie out of retirement in hopes to get another doe kid. Millie was our first Lamancha, she was unregistered but eventually we were able to register her as NOA.

Millie is not our best do, she'll never step foot in the show ring but she has produced phenomenal kids for us. Millie and her daughters have fantastic length of lactation. So milky! She has two milking daughters in our herd- a mini and a standard (ADGA grade) lamancha. Her ADGA daughter is not a SGCH doe and earned her AR *M in all three categories as a FF.

Millie hasn't kidded since 2016! She tends to have singles (her daughters love to through triplets though, go figure). I'm thinking a single again. You never know though, she has such a deep, wide body it's easy to hide kids. :) The pic is kinda deceptive, she is a powerhouse! Don't mind her crazy hair- it doesn't look like that all the time. It was warm and super humid today...everyone in this line ends up with a "bad hair day" when the humidity gets bad. Due 2/6

Last Saturday I went ahead and pulled Ruth up, poor girl is so big she was having a hard time around the rest of the herd. I had her in a 30x20 pen that is right across from the house (it has a 10x20 canopy and a 6x5 3-sided shelter). This allowed her to still get plenty of exercise since it was so early. She's been stringing discharge on and off and her udder is starting to fill! The last two nights I've been putting her in a stall so I'd be able to watch the camera.

Won't be long before kids arrive! :inlove:

Here's my view :) Ruth and her herdmate, Leah (3/4 sibling, retired). I brought Leah up along with Ruth for company.
