I Smell Like Goat Colostrum. Mmmmm… Prelude

Our long awaited kidding dates finally arrived! The last week or so has been a rush to prepare our birthing kits and get ready for both Nanna and Scout to kid within days of each other. My estimated dates based on when I think they were last in heat plus 150 days of gestation were pretty much right on. The signs were there, too. Both Nanna and Scout started developing their udders about a month ago, but I noticed on Monday that both had gotten considerably fuller. Image

ImageSean had already built a fence to give both their space for kidding, but we had just gotten their hay bedding on the ground that evening.

After feeding, I took some photos of Nanna and just got the sense that labor was impending. Can you tell?Image
