    Lynn you need to feed those goats big time in the afternoon so they don't have babies during the night. :)

    What Sondra said worked pretty well for us last year, we had ONE middle of the night kidding last year...of course it would be the kidding we were most anxious about, our most anticipated breeding, the old girl, a raging thunderstorm knocked out the monitor...what a nightmare! LOL...

    I did that in previous yrs... but being out of commission this yr I just never communicated that to the dc...

    BUT at least we have only had 2 NIGHT kiddings out of 7 now....

    Dh asked as we went to bed when did *I* think she'd go? I said 3AM.....

    baby #1 at 3:07
    baby #2 at 3:15

    LOL I'm .........












    a lucky guesser. :lol



    6lb YIKES! b/d twins!

    The boys did great at their respective assignments.... Aaron was the *runner*. So he came to wake us. Unfortunately, he LOCKED Isaac in! So Isaac could not get to the tote of towels... he was alone as baby #1 was born... he stripped off his pillowcase to dry him in then got him wrapped in his sleeping bag and was trying to help with #2 as I arrived!

    Both live & healthy....

    Girl drank her colostrum great... boy good enough...

    Becca went down and rechecked her for me....

    -------------------

    9AM? or a bit before Aaron showed up back at our door.... "Coco!!!Baby!!!! Hurry!!"

    huh?

    she was out in the cold hoop house... Isaac again delivered #1....runner took it to the house... I got her to the birth rm for #2... when I arrived rear hooves were already part out... I pulled out a live male... 7lbs.

    #1 did not make it.

    And..... BLUSH.....

    Vicki did it AGAIN!!!!

    no goop
    no signs of labor

    We locked her in the birthing shelter just in case since she is near term...

    This AM Isaac went down... 2 dry babies standing there!

    Placenta already out... he stepped on it... lol...

    The door was blocked with shavings so he was shoving it open when he saw the babies... he grabbed towels from the milk rm he put down last night and came up carrying them.

    cream buck 8lbs
    brown doe 6lbs

    No clue if they nursed... Becca just got 3lbs colostrum from her.

    Doe is Clara Mae. Buck is Rockford or Kojak

    This was exactly what she did yr 1 with Fred & Ginger...

    She *almost* did it last yr but was birthing under the boys bedrm window....

    Score is tied.... 6 bucks 6 does
