WOW!!! What an awesome, blessed memory to have! So many kidding, in such rapid succession! I'm very glad for you, that not only did all go beautifully - I'm SO IMPRESSED with YOU!! - but, that they went in succession, rather than multiples, at the same time, especially with as much as you did have to 'lend a hand'! :celebrate:clap:celebrate:clap:celebrate

Little Otis was born at 4am! He had both hooves backward, so progress stopped once his face was out. I had to go in to slip out each hoof, then he came out smoothly. Nerve-wracking first delivery, but mom and baby look great! I “bounced” but I didn’t feel anything more, so I think she’s done. Waiting on afterbirth. She’s already got him cleaned up (though she’s STILL cleaning!)

They are so adorable. I hope that when my girls kid the first time that I do as good a job as you did. What did you make for birthing suites? The little parts I saw looked like dog crate sides.

i use Retriever dog kennel panels from Tractor Supply. I buy the kennels when I get their % off anything promotions (or on Craigslist) - they end up being cheaper than the 10ft interlocking farm panels, and they’re small enough for me to maneuver on my own. I love em!

Anyway that you can post a picture. We have a variety of dog crates.
