New baby Goats : LUSENET : Dairygoats : One Thread

After the stress with the premature birth of twins last week it was so nice to have an uncomplicated kidding today. One of my first fresheners an experimental (alpine/lamancha) was bred to my Oberhasli buck and she gave me a doe and buck a couple of hours ago. They look just like my ober babies! I wasn't sure what they would look like! I did want the lamancha ears but I cant complain since they are healthy. : ) Only one more doe to go. The sister to the one that kidded today. I crossed her the same. I have a couple of weeks till she is due. :) :) :)

Congrats on the healty kids!!!!!!!!!!!!! good luck with your other doe!! My doe that lost her triplets is doing fine. A little depressed but loving all the extra attention from me. VBG. Have two more does to kid next week and I am done. So far have had 11 kids out of 6 does, 4 doelings and the rest bucklings. Not counting the tiny triplets. Jan in North Idaho

Shari, I know what you mean. Seems like everytime Joe has to be at a dog show for the weekend, it's cold, raining, awful outside and that's when I get the difficult births. A few nights ago when Joe was gone again, a lady gave birth. Slam, bam, thank you mam, no problems. It was a warm night, a full moon, no problems all is well. I guess that's the reward for going through the tough times.
