    My Alpine doe was due to freshen two days ago. She's showed zero signs of impending labor. I checked her late last night and she was comfortably bedded down so I went to bed. I rushed out this morning to check on her and found three beautiful little doelings. Very sadly, one of them was dead, but the other two appear to be doing just fine.

    Here's a couple of pictures:

    That white face is sooo cute, it makes me want one, though we had one as a child. It ate clothing off the line, shoes off the porch and butted us all the time! lol,
    Very cute,
    congrats
