Not sure how you do it! I watched last year and got to see 3 of them be born. Was very exciting. When I think 3 minis is a handful, I think of others that have way more to take care of. You do an awesome job! And love seeing all your new little ones! Exciting!

Melinda, You need some more foaling stalls this year!! The rotations alone are going to drive you crazy, who's in stall #1, #2 or #3 it will be hard keeping it all straight with your due dates so close together!!!!! lol I'll be watching when I can!!

Thanks and hope you can catch some foaling again this year!  It is a lot of work but very rewarding

LOL I definitely need more stalls on cam :D...Right now Ebony is on the left at 304 days had a half full bag but walked it off pacing, she usually takes a few days to settle into the stall.  Middle is STILL Success at 350 days today and only about a half full udder.  She will drive everyone who watches crazy as she is constantly yawning, looking at her sides, shifting her weight, ect...And last but not least Dreamin is on the right with a decent start to her udder but not a 'ready' udder yet at 314 days.
