    Two Spot, our polled FF, kidded today at 1:00.

    Her labor went 45 minutes past her waters breaking, and the kid was elbows back and required pulling.

    Momo is VERY stong and healthy, was up before the umbillicus broke. He's by our senior buck, Henry and is Henry's first dark grey agouti kid (we usually expect white agoutis from Henry so it was a nice surprise!).

    Motomo is an American Indian name meaning "He Comes First".

    Thanks all! He's just a doll baby!

    Cross your fingers that he's POLLED like his mother. We should be able to tell in a week or two...
