I can officially start a kidding thread! Yaayyyy!
First up this year is Notre Lee, just went into labor this afternoon. First appearance of discharge right now, just a teensy Weensy little bit. She hasn’t started pushing yet but is having contractions about every minute.

Well, don't doze off or you'll miss it. Once they start, so long as things are right, it's pretty fast. ☺️

When I raised mini horses I had cameras in stalls and a monitor by my bed. The mares had a small device hooked onto their halter. When they laid out to foal it would set off an alarm at my site and I could look to see if they were foaling or just laid out sleeping. Goats don't lay out like that. 😁. It's rare that a horse doesn't. 👍

Getting closer, but looks like she still has some time to drive you nuts. Or she could kid in the next 30 minutes.
😂 we’ve left the house for the next hour and she had a tiny bit of discharge when we left.
She was up and down all day today, pawing at the straw constantly
