    Rocky for short, LOL!

    Sugar kidded today at 1:30 with a HUGE black and white buckling. She had a tough, tough labor...started early this morning. When she wasn't progressing, I finally went in and pulled him. She is tired, I kick myself because I think I waited a tish too long to go in after the kid...but she is recovering very well and is slurping down a warm beet pulp slurry like it's the best thing, EVER.

    Rocky is doing great. Our first brown eyed kid this time around, but cute as a button!

    Wow! He is huge for a doe that size, or so it appears in the pictures. [​IMG]

    She is soooo fortunate that you know how to go in and pull a kid, so many people have no idea. Ya done good! And so did Sugar!

    TBC - LOL! So sorry to constantly tempt you [​IMG] luckily for your car, Rocky was pre-sold, as was Chris. Giada, however...tee hee!

    BeckyLA - yup...breeding miniatures has gotten me somewhat "old hat" at assisting, unfortunately. Rocky is a huge boy...Sugar overcooked him a bit.

    Aneesa - still have two does to kid!

    Thanks everyone!
