    Our 4 Boer cross does are due between the 7th and the 14th. All have been bred to Myotonic bucks this year. I’m crossing my fingers for bucklings as they’ll be youth auction projects and I’m pretty excited to see what we get!

    Thanks! Here are the does, nothing special show wise but they are exceptional on feet, parasite resistance, very maternal, super easy kidders, and friendly!

    Goo everywhere, strings, smears, ropes of goo. But they’re not ready.

    I know I should be waiting patiently. Boys are never early unless there’s bunches of them but I’m not. I want baby goats NOW!!

    Bouncing baby boys! I just can’t wait!

    Normally I wouldn’t wish for a bumper crop of bucklings...but...sending blue thoughts your way and praying for textbook easy deliveries for your does!
    Happy kidding :)

    First kid is here! He’s a surprise too I came home from work to find This doe, Cinnamon, is a FF that kidded a single 6.5 pound buckling and wasn’t supposed to be due until the 14th. His teeth aren’t erupted but nothing else about him looks early.

    He’s so cute! And stout! And cute!

    Cinn did a good job and he was clean, dry, and walking around when I got home. She’s still pretty unsure but felt better once they were secure in a stall. She’s got some edema and I couldn’t get a single drop of milk out but I do think he found some. He wasn’t full but didn’t feel hollow or caved in either. I still gave him some extra colostrum to be on the safe side and she got banamine to help with the edema.

    How do you treat udder edema? Massage and compresses?

    [mention]Mad house [/mention] I cut to chase and gave her banamine. Rotating hot and cold compress and massage with uddermint can help. This isn’t a doe that going to appreciate any compress treatment and she’s about at the end of her mental tether and really stressed. I opted to skip adding more stress for the moment and take the prescription option.

    Later today when she calmer and settled and I’m home from work I’ll do massage with uddermint.

    He really is adorable. I was hoping those eyes weren’t blue (frown on and discriminated against in the show ring) and last night they looked light brown!

    Here’s a morning smile!

    How do you not scoop him up and just kiss him all over - such a cutie! Tell mom to stop being such a poop.
