First freshener parade

Sickness, home remodeling, chilled bunnies and blogging must not go together well as I am behind on posts. 
 
Not sure yet how I am going about it but I would like to feature some first fresheners throughout the kidding season - from their junior shots of "baby teats" through capturing their developing mammaries to finally the end product - a milk filled udder. I find this process so fascinating ... this time of year more than any other, obviously, I find myself inspecting doe's behinds - for signs of upcoming labor, udder development and just gestational changes in general.
 
My featured doe no. 1 is Fern - after waiting patiently for almost two years to see her fresh, she is rewarding me by going all out and providing a sneak peek with an udder the size of a regular first freshener udder yet still precocious. I am excited about the potential for capacity once she is in milk. Plenty of room for a good rear udder arch and I am noting the teats moving closer to the center each week as the shape becomes more globular. I am pleased with the teat size so far and expect them to double once in full milk production.  Anyway, this is Fern about 30 days away from her due date ... in comparison with her junior shot. And as a bonus, a shot from dam and daughter class at 2011 Oklahoma State Fair with dam Strudel. Strudel had an exceptional mammary and we hope to see Fern follow in those footsteps. So far, I think we are in luck !

I'm not sure exactly why but this weblog is loading very slow for me. Is anyone else having this problem or is it a issue on my end? I'll check back later on and see if the problem still exists.

Unquestionably believe that which you stated. Your favorite justification seemed to be on the internet the easiest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I certainly get annoyed while people consider worries that they plainly don't know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top as well as defined out the whole thing without having side effect , people can take a signal. Will likely be back to get more. Thanks

Our children escape in the outbuilding for night and search for the different activities. Children should be strong enough to shun their fears and have a comfortable time. By providing them with different mental activities, they will be happy.
