    OK whatever changed! Thank you Lord!

    14yos just ran me up a healthy doeling... though doing the sneeze/cough thing and not hollaring...

    Looks to be good size the color of Sweetheart (Katie & LA)...

    This dad is Pepper out of my Cinnamon... who is out of Gypsy and a Nubian buck.... Cinn is my BIG huge doe... good milker... sweetie pie...

    OK #2 same breathing issue... dark male

    OK all seems *ok*... guessing Becca freaked a bit since this one was not as *easy* as Mocha... plus 14yos was giving reports... he is our *town crier*... if there is bad news... he is your man!

    I think they are ok...

    placenta came out WITH #2 though seems to be Aaron's report... but Becca says bleeding is normal.

    OK reported bags were very very strong... not good in goats right...

    and both came out with tongues hanging out....

    I'd guess both were around 7lbs...

    Would this be a deficiecy in either selenium or Copper or an overabundance?

    It was said earlier I think copper deficiency... I know I questioned it since in humans tougher bags are a *good thing*....

    They did the tongue loll thing at first... but the girl drank over 1/3 of a 20oz bottle at her last feeding... so doing good.... both stand well.

    I think they are fine & dandy! {{giggle}} Sire is Dandy.

    Now getting nervous... Pepper's twin Thyme is due soon and I bred her to their sire... biting my nails here....
