Getting Ready for Kidding

27 Mar

My first spring break baby is due on Sunday. I’m not sure Mary looks like she’s going to be the first, but she’s due first.



Litha is due the next day.



The next day, I have nine goats due.  What that means is everyone is so close together that anyone could go at any time.



We’ll be busy.  I have help coming from Canada.  Really!  My wonderful goat sister Claire, who gave me Coffee, is returning to Iowa for a kidding vacation.

Coffee is the black one.

Coffee is the mostly black one.

I’m excited to see her and meet all the new kids coming in the next week.  All that excitement means my newfound progress (not great yet, but I’m trying) at actually getting around to comment on blogs might be put on hold.

A bonus random thought: I think all my problems of commenting on Blogger blogs with my WordPress ID have been fixed.  I downloaded a different browser, and I had no problems.  Well, tonight, I logged in to Millie’s (now defunct) blog.  Then I couldn’t comment again!  I logged out on my old browser, and it worked.  If only I could have Googled the solution!

    Canadians are always up to lend a helping hand! 😀

    • Teresa March 27, 2015 at 6:20 pm #

      They are wonderful!

    I knew you’d said you were going to have help for kidding, but had no idea she was coming from Canada! How wonderful! You two will have a great time! Your pictures are great too!

    • Teresa March 27, 2015 at 8:28 pm #

      I’m very glad she’s coming. It’s not easy to get experienced help.

    Nine goats in one day would have me checking in to the nearest funny farm! I’m glad you have help. Claire’s presence alone should be a great asset. Nothing like having another goatie person around to help and quiet the nerves.

      There’s 18 to kid with due dates from 3/29 to 4/2, so it will be a busy week. I’m excited to have Claire here!

    It sounds like a great week in store for you!

    • Teresa March 28, 2015 at 11:40 am #

      I’m really excited!

    Nice pictures – the grass all looks brown – will it start to green up as spring starts?

    cheers – Stewart M – Melbourne

    • Teresa March 28, 2015 at 11:40 am #

      It is turning green beneath last year’s growth. I’m guessing it will be mostly green within a week.

  11. Gattina March 28, 2015 at 4:53 am #

    Wow that’s a lot of babies due ! You can play midwife to your hearts content !
    Hope that every future mum goat does her job well without complications !

    • Teresa March 28, 2015 at 11:41 am #

      There’s actually 18 due within the week. I’ll be happy to be done even though I enjoy kidding.

  12. Alica March 28, 2015 at 5:23 am #

    You sure will be busy. Until all those baby goats will see the light of day and also after. But imagine all those little ones running and jumping around – LOL
    Funny you saying that about Blogger Blogs – lately I am having real issues to load Blogger blogs in Chrome. Which seems stupid as both are Google. Then I go to Firefox and everything loads etc. etc. – stupid. Haven’t found a solution for that one either.

    • Teresa March 29, 2015 at 9:22 am #

      Yep. I did read the Chrome doesn’t work well with blogger. Crazy.
