We back to "wait mode" on two goats due now. Any day between now and next week. They are officially due on Saturday and we are having a huge party that day. Might be more of a show than people bargained for!

Re: Baby goats in 2014!


The two goats we were waiting on kidded of course! Both needed assistance and I'm ready for kidding season to be over.

Shelli was so big we were sure she would have triplets. But she struggled to deliver a single HUGE buck. Most babies are 7-8 lbs. he was 14.5!!! Unheard of! He had to be pulled. Ugh.

Matilda went into labor in between nighttime checks and struggled with a poorly positioned baby before we found her. Sadly, that baby was already dead and I had to help her finish the delivery. The second baby came out fine and is quite healthy.

And tonight I'm waiting for Maxie to kid! After this, we have a 3 week break before another one is due. Phew.

Re: Baby goats in 2014!


So sorry about the dead baby! Do you think it was because of the delay, or would it have died anyway? At least you got the twin out fine. Phew.

And best of luck with Maxi tonight! *huge thumbs up*

Re: Baby goats in 2014!


More updates. Maxie of course did kid shortly after my last post. It wasn't a fun kidding either. I knew something was wrong but was powerless to help. Her first was a stillborn - looked to have died well before the birthing process started, hours maybe days. But the second one came out fine! She is a cute little bugger.

We have two more to go. One is due Saturday, the other on Tuesday. I'll update soon!

Re: Baby goats in 2014!


Having a dead one inside is always troublesome getting them out, I am very glad the twin was fine though. I look forward to photographs of all of the goat kids... emoticon
