    Next-
    Clover- due now (145) 4th

    We are trying to get pics. Not easy though right now. Bottle feeding, up all night, heavy rains, trying to mow and clean, stalls needing changed with all the kiddings and we moved 25 baby goats to different field/buildings. Weighed everyone too. Plus milking and still cleaning up from the shows we are swamped. We did try to get pics. FAIL. We decided we were too tired and this was not fun right now. Several extremely hot days also meant bringing baby goats in the house. Too young and it was too hot.

    Clover and Lemon kidded yesterday!
    Will update when we can.

    Last one will probably kid today. (Red Hot aka Peanut)
    Then we will be done for 2018! What a relief.
    Just exhausted. We may milk does through this year and skip some breeding in the fall.

    Completely burned out on kids.

    Exhausted.

    Red Hot aka peanut had ....

    QUADS!!!!!!!!!!!!! :eek::ep:th

    I knew she was too big for trips, but did not expect quads.

    3 Bucks - 2#, 2.5#, 2.2#
    1 Doe- 2.5#

    Pics when we can

    She is a yearling FF and a bit confused, we didn't leave any with her because we knew she'd step on them. We will reunite them today.
    Peanut did great.

    6 does in the past 5 days. 15 kids. :th

    We are officially done with kidding for 2018 :weee:weee:weee
