Zia's babies

I am almost month behind on kidding updates. We have 9 babies on the ground and while I am fairly good about posting on our FB page, I have seriously neglected the blog !
 
Pinky and Tulip decided to deliver on the same day, Pinky going early and Zia just on time. It was a little crowded in the kidding stall but we managed :) Thankfully both girls waited until broad daylight to have them. "After my morning coffee" has been my kidding season mantra. I can deal with most things - after my morning coffee.
 
Not only did both does kid the exact same litter - two does and a buck but they both had almost identical presentations and malpresentations of the kids.
 
Zia had been uddered up for days and I suspected her to go any day, yet she waited until her due date. Labor was going surprisingly slow for a 3rd freshener that is normally quite swift about the process. I always check for presentation of the kid when a doe starts pushing but I also check when slow progress is involved. A malpresented kid will often not proceed past the cervix and a minor adjustment in the position really gets things going. Sure enough, first kid positioned with head forward and front feet backwards. Adjusted that one - a big solid black buckling did not take long to make entrance as Zia started pushing almost immediately after I fixed the problem.
We had a black jet kid from Zia before - all black buck from her first kidding with only little white lacing around the edges of his ears - just beautiful. This fella had a small white crown, tiny white splash, and ONE brown spot on the side. Very large for a triplet, and gave Zia a hard time coming but was healthy and quick to stand up.
Some of you know that this was a repeat breeding that produced Calamity and Cleopatra, two wildly spotted sisters, last kidding season. I had many hopeful customers for a Calamity look alike or a buckling with spots. I was honestly expecting spots, if not in all the kids in the litter, then some. Surprisingly - no spots this time.
Buck was followed by two doelings - one looking just like Zia and the other with partial white belt. Both adorable, just nothing like the doelings we got last year, which just tells you how unpredictable are color patterns in Nubians :) My flashiest kids so far have been out of solid red does - go figure.
Anyway, here are Zia's triplets in all their glory, as I write this long past the actual date of birth, both girls have since gone to their new homes, buck is still available and hoping to find a job as a junior herd sire.
