Whitney kidded & pictures!

After having does kidding for almost 6 months now, we are DONE!! Whitney kidded on Wednesday the 3rd, the last doe of the season! YAY! It was an uneventful birth and a very nice way to finally end kidding season. . . 2 beautiful *tiny* doelings! Both are blue eyed and just adorable! These pictures are not the greatest of them though - they were not cooperating very well ;). The first doeling here was 2 1/2 lbs at birth (my smallest kid yet), and her sister was 3 1/2 lbs. Despite how tiny they are, they drink a whole lot of milk!

Here are some pictures of the "Bigger Small" kids. I just took these today.

Vanilla's doeling, being crazy...

Doris' other doeling (#1),
Doris' buckling (the other buckling already went to his new home - thank you!). This handsome guy is still available!

Have a great weekend everyone!

p.s. - with everyone kidded, we are now milking 20 does a day.
