To kid or not to kid

Monday, May 10, 2010

....that is the question we're asking ourselves right now! And no, I'm not talking about a joke. "Kidding" is a goat birth. And we're getting awfully close to one.

Daisy, our little Nubian goat, is due to kid anywhere from May 22 - 28. So I was a little alarmed last evening when David came running in the house and yelling that Daisy was giving birth! This was very strange, not only because she was still early, but because I had checked on her no less than 45 minutes earlier and she was just fine.

I was very much expecting some cute goat babies last night, since Daisy was laying down, grinding her teeth, having contractions, and acting very much in pain. I even stayed up 'till 11:30 to watch her. And nothing happened.

I rushed out to the goat shelter this morning, expecting to find some cute little goaties running around...but still nothing! And Daisy is fit as a fiddle today. No more labor, no more what's up with her??

Stay tuned this week for pictures of her cute babies! I am sure she'll kid this week ~ and I'm sure she's desperate to get those bowling balls out of her stomach.
