What a wonderful, calming voice that woman has.

Okay- betcha five bucks you cry at least with the first one.

I would.

it's almost certain you'll cry. We all did when our first goat kids were born and will likely do it again when our next round is born in a couple weeks!

That was so beautiful! I actually felt so much empathy for her because of laboring with 4 babes of my own....She was MUCH quieter then I ever was though :)

That is so cool. I hope all goes well for your ewes and babes (and therefore, for you, too.) Can't wait to see them!

I love Granny Miller's blog, and her videos! I hope your first lambing birth is a straightforward one.

Would LOVE to know who docked that ewe's tail so short. Ridiculous. Also, word to the wise- you leave a water bucket in with a ewe who is lambing, she may deliver the lamb INTO the bucket of water. Either be there to watch her drink, or wait until she's delivered all of her lambs to give her the water.

Crying - heck, I cried when I saw my mare's baby's heartbeat on the ultrasound at 3 weeks along!

So excited for you Jenna :)

As messy as it was, I was spellbound! Best of luck to the ewes, lambs, and you!

Hey, the first time I've seen it. Last year we weren't around for a single birth - all 7 did it on their own when we were at the house.

Even the goat waited until we went up for supper to birth. When we came back, twins.

Chances are you will miss much of the action as well. I hope so, since that generally means the births were fast and easy.
