Gemma is set to deliver in ten days!
We are getting a bit anxious as this is our first kidding experience at Sage Meadow Farm. Having a live-in veterinarian is a definite plus. But I’ll be relieved when the process is over and the kids and mum are safe and sound.
Over the past couple of weeks, we have noticed that Gemma seems to be growing exponentially larger as each day passes. We've increased her food intake to accommodate the energy that she needs for her growing fetuses. Her udder started to form about two weeks ago and seems to be maturing daily as well. For those unfamiliar with the dairy goat world, (not that I'm an expert), the udder is of the utmost importance. If Gemma’s development continues on its current course, she should be a super milk producer and a Sable show stopper.
Um … I think the “show” part will be Joe’s gig.
