    Kidding has started on a good note! We are kidding out 10 does and 3 of those are first fresheners.

    Well, our first kidding was a first freshener and she done good! She picked a warm sunny day, and started her mucus string at the morning feeding. By lunch, we had a buck and a doe on the ground. Nice and easy births.

    I told all the other girls that they were going to do the same thing. Our next doe is due in 3 weeks.

    Hope everyone has a wonderful and Merry Christmas!
