    Hurray!!!! We have one little buckling so far. I think that might be it, but I'm not totally sure yet. I added a picture further down the thread.



    Ok, I've said it before, but this time it has to be true. Fleur will kid sometime today! [​IMG] Her udder has gotten twice as big overnight, her ligs are completely gone, she has some amber colored mucus, she is walking funny, she ate a couple bites of the grain I offered but then left it alone, and she is being unusually noisy. That should all point to kidding sometime soon right?
    Here is an udder/back end picture from a couple days ago:

    And here she is this morning:

    Am I reading the signs right? Please tell me she will kid today.... [​IMG]

    I thought so Kate. All along, I haven't been expecting much since she is a FF and she is pretty little. I find it amazing that she has gone from having a totally flat belly with two tiny teats all the way to this. Nature is amazing!

    I think this little one will be a singleton. He is adorable though!
