I never imagined they would get so wide!
I spent those months reading and re-reading everything I could find on taking care of them during pregnancy and all the things that you had to watch for during pregnancy and delivery. It's pretty scary with all that could go wrong. I studied and tried to memorize the bad birth positions and what to do. I got my "kidding kit" together with all of the things I thought I'd need for all those "just in case" cases.
Needless to say ... by the time for kidding came I was as prepared as I could be for my first kidding season. I watched my does closely as their due dates drew close.
By this time I had acquired 2 more does and would be kidding 7 does that first season. As always ... the research helps - especially the web sites with photos of what to expect ... But the best teacher is hands on experience!
