A good morning!

I'm happy to report that at 3am this morning, Jewel went into labor and presented us with twins! A black with red trim spotted buck kid and a black with red trim beautiful doe kid with a large white spot on her belly. They are up and have had their colostrum. Jewel has a beautiful udder, super high, with big teats that hang straight down - and they were a joy to milk this morning! I put a good pint of gold colostrum in the freezer by 4:30am.

Queisha lost her mucus plug this morning so she will be kidding soon also. And she did, going into labor at 7:30am and delivering an 8.3 pound huge buck kid, also black with red trim. So the Nubians are done until August when Sunshine who was bred to Blue Zephyr is due and that's our last Nubian kidding for the year.
