We don't have a firm due date for Miriam because she was bred already when she came back to the ranch. But based on her udder I would hazard a guess that she will kid sometime this weekend.
She is Maple's first daughter and we are really looking forward to seeing her udder. Right now it looks to be on the small side, but then Maple's wasn't very big (just so nicely formed!) for her first kidding either.
After Miriam the next up to kid is Mame'. (pictured on the right) This will be her 6th kidding and if she holds true to her past history she will kid on day 142 which would be March 14th - which just happens to be her 8th birthday and the date she kidded last year.
Her daughter Levana (pictured on the left) is due the 21st and we are not only looking forward to seeing her first freshening udder (which is shaping up beautifully!) but also seeing the first kids out of Maple's son Midnight. It is hard to tell Levana apart from her half-sister Rita who is also a Sunny daughter. We are hoping that Levana will be a super producer like Rita and Mame' - she certainly has the genetics to surpass them both!
