Crazy Kidding Story! ---- 04/02/10 ----

I know it's kinda late to post this...........but I'll do it anyway :)

Cloudy, one of our does had a very complicated delivery on 04/02/10, Sat night. We thought we were going to lose her and her kids for sure!  Her cervix was tilted off to the side & the uterus was tilted or twisted, so we were sure she wouldn't make it.  I called some friends & we posted the situation to all kinds of goat boards & got responses from all over the country!  It was amazing.

After going in 4 times & manipulating things around, somehow the uterus straightened out & the cervix just appeared, right where it was supposed to be....but it wasn't dialated (it was about the size of the tip of your index finger)!  We gave her a shot of Lutalyse, which causes dialation, & it still took 26 hours for her to deliver.  Finally at 2:30 am on Sunday morning, she had two very cute doelings!  They came out PERFECT and it was a happy ending!  It was a great learning experience, but I hope we never have to go through anything like that again! :)

Here are some pics of the 2 CUTE doelings!
