Harvest decided she could totally trumph Fern with her surprise kidding and delivered her kids while I was briefly gone from the house. She was basking in the sun, with ligaments gone but not dialated when I left. Presented Sebastien with a bubble at morning milking and while the boys were busy dialing my number she delivered the first baby. Driving back as fast as speed limit would allow, I was informed that she had a baby boy and when I pulled into the driveway, she supposedly had twins, a buck and a doe and all I came home to was a placenta :) Things were a bit chaotic since only the boys were home and this was teir first "home alone" delivery but they did great - Sebastien checked for presentation and Remy (left with the doe while brother carried first baby home) knew enough to clean the nose first to help breathing and rub the kid dry with a towell. Yay for my boys and their first kids they helped deliver with no assistance - 2 beautiful bucks (Ok, so they need some anatomy tweaking, ha !)
Since I was not here to photo anything of the blessed moment, here are some photos from later on.

Harvest freshened with the most beautiful udder, we could not be more excited - watch for her in the show ring this spring and fall !!
