Maternity Update

March 10, 2009

Both Mame’ and her half sister Molly have an estimated kidding date of March 23rd.   This afternoon we got the shed that we use for kidding ready for them and moved them into the maternity pasture.   I like to have them in the new paddock and housing a couple of weeks before they are due so that they have a chance to adjust to their new surroundings.

Both does are first timers, and I have to admit that I am starting to be a nervous nellie waiting for the blessed events to arrive.    Mame’s ligaments are softer than Molly’s today, so I am guessing that she will go first.

Maybe I should start a pool with guessiments on when each of them will finally deliver! 🙂
