Day 142 for Mame'
Today is day 142 for Mame' so the waiting and watching can "officially" begin now. Last year, as a first freshener, she kidded with triplets on day 147, outside on a cold rainy morning. Only two of the three survived and we nearly lost one of those.
This year I'm taking no chances and although she isn't showing any signs of being close to kidding, as of this morning she is now in the kidding pen until she kids. I have the center divider out so she has the benefit of both pens. She is getting plenty of visits from Bekah who loves to feed her the choicest bits of clover hay.
We are really hoping that at least one of the twins that showed on the ultrasound is a doe. And of course I am anxious to see what her milk capacity is this year as she did quite well as a first freshener last year both in capacity and taste!
