    My kidding cam is back up for the kidding season.

    Since I got Awesome presents on my b-day there are now TWO cameras. Right now one is on the Junior does and One on the Senior does. I have 5 seniors due any day. They have the newer and brighter camera. The juniors have the older and darker camera. Both cams don't look great right now cause they are sorta far away, but once they are moved to the kidding stalls they should look awesome :)

    Ditto!!!

    This will be our first time kidding this year, and so I am watching this like a hawk to see if I see anything or not, hehe. This may be a great investment for us too...

    I want one! I want one! All I have is a baby monitor...but I can imagine I'll be out in the barn vs. using the monitor LOL
    I love marestare, I have some friends who use it from time to time with their broodmares.
    The Juniors look to have flew the coop, while the senior girls with their cute BIG bellies and the chickens seem content to be inside :)

    Thanks everyone, they are a LOT of work to put up, but worth it. Right now the cams are just on the main stalls, but once someone show's signs of going into labor I will move the goat to one of the kidding stalls and move the cam.

    Oh and the junior and seniors mix and mingle during the day time.

    Dreamer is loosing her plug and is very uncomfy. Found out part of the reason is there is a kid sitting over her rumen! Felt it kicking up a storm and then felt her rumen go, whoosh. I also am pretty sure I felt another kicking on the other side. so hopefully twins this year!

    No real changes in Gale or Spice. They will both be on 145 tomorrow and Saleen will be on 148! :GAAH:

    Ooo, the camera was switched to a stall! No goat in it yet, but I noticed alot of fussing around by a couple of them a bit ago. *crossing fingers for you*

    update: goat in stall now! :leap:

    Dreamer is in the stall right now so we can keep an eye on her. She was sleeping away from the others which she never does at all. She always sleeps with someone. She seems very uncomfortable. I gave her some calcium and nutri drench.

    Her ligs are still there but they are low and her udder has filled a bit.

    Ohhh, My daughter and I have been watching Dreamer and she is rolling her head back and has her tail stuck straight out....been looking like the start of contractions....
    She's also been pacing around in her stall the last hour or so... first I thought maybe just anxiety from being seperated...but she's definitely looking more like contractions to me. Yipppee!
