Textbook kidding

Saffron was the one of the three (due dates Feb 22, 23 and 24) to go second but she took her sweet time and walked around with an udder and barely any ligaments for two days. She finally decided it was time shortly after lunch and if there is such a thing, this was the textbook kidding. Contractions - check. Leaving the herd and seeking solitude in the barn - check. Correct presentation - check. Sack broke and fluid leaked leaving a gooey string - check. Lying down to push - check. Push and kid no. 1 - check. Push - kid no. 2. Check. Placenta presented. Placenta passed.
Beautiful twins - both very spotted, healthy and alert. Thank you, Saffron, job well done. Plenty of colostrum to feed them (though I don't feed first freshener colostrum)
and no attitude getting milk - just the way I like it. What a blessing ... and we are done with kidding until April ... I have to say this went very smoothly and we thank God for such easy kidding as well as our 2012 kid crop.
The buck is black with multicolored moonspots, self colored ears and white markings, doeling looks a lot like her sire Copper Breeze - caramel spotted with a blaze and splash.
