    Remember this thread??

    http://dairygoatinfo.com/index.php?topic=1812.0

    After it was obvious she was not going to kid to the first buck, I started worrying about if she would do ok kidding. For the last month she has been prolapsing every time she laid down. Lots of red stuff sticking out that shouldn't have been! I've never seen that and was afraid it might get in the way when she went into labour.

    Well........Escapade went 151 days, which is unheard of in my Lamanchas. She was most certainly bred to the proper buck(the lute worked just fine!!). She kidded this morning with huge triplets. 1 big white buck, then two big cream/tan does.
    I think maybe shew knew about her prolapsing when she laid down, because she didn't lay down once during the labour. :lol
    She did great and gave me almost 3/4 gallon of colostrum plus what I left for her boy to eat.
    What a relief! Now....which doeling to keep.......maybe I'll keep both! :rofl
