Another set of new dairy kids - Live twins (Wepeat x Xtreme Grace) March 23, 2009

SilverAurora TH Xtreme Grace, a first-freshener, delivered live twin doelings by SilverAurora JC Wepeat *S *B, completely unassisted today!  She delivered at 148 days, 12 hours gestation.

Both doelings were 4.00 pounds each at birth, which is a great size for a first-timer to deliver all on her own!  She even had them standing, cleaned off, and fed without any help at all!  Strong kids and a good mom make a great combination!

One doeling is a chamoisee with white and the other is another violet color with the smokey points/underbelly.  Very interesting!  At least one has frosted ears, not sure on the other yet (waiting for her to dry completely and show me her colors better).  I will probably retain one doe and make the other available.

This is our sixth set of kids under our herd name, Fair Skies. Here are a few pictures, taken just a couple hours after birth. As is typical for new kids born at these temperatures, they were all hunchy last night. It was about 30F with gusty wind so we added a lamp to help supplement heat.

Xtreme Grace delivered live twins by Wepeat after 148.5 days gestation. March 23, 2009
