Today is day 142 for Millie and she is looking positively ready to pop. She has been losing her plug off and on for a couple of weeks now just like she did last year when she kidded on the afternoon of day 142.
Poor girl can't find a comfortable position to lay in and huffs and puffs, grunts and groans and is constantly shifting position any time she tries to settle herself. It's hard to keep the children from constantly running out to check on her, but their boisterousness is not conducive to a peaceful birthing environment. So I'm trying to keep the kidding checks to only every two hours.
Since it appears Mystery came into heat last week, this will unfortunately be our last kidding of the year. I could have tried breeding Mystery again, but I really don't want kids arriving at the start of winter. So the plan now is to bred her to kid at the end of February. And hopefully she will have lost some weight by then and be in better condition to conceive.
