My Alpine/Toggenburg had two beautiful twin doelings today. This is my first time experiencing this along with my does first freshening. I did my usual panic as did my doe. My neighbor came over and helped. All if fine now. What a relief!!! We will both sleep better tonight. I have one left to go. That may also be this week. I would definately recommend knowing when your doe is bred so that you know when to expect the kids. I didn't and have been worrying for two weeks now. Next year will be different. Today 4/17/05, my Alpine doe had two beautiful twin doelings also. Their names are Brit and Oscar (my husband named her after Oscar the Grouch). That poor girl. All went quick and easy. My husband went to cut some wood for a total of 20 minutes and came back and there was a kid on the floor. She hadn't even been acting like she was in labor. :no: I hadn't even expected it and was running errands all afternoon, until I got the call that is.
