Dixie, Her cohort, the only other doeling we kept this year is 285 days old, or 9 months, 12 days. Dixie is also 18 days bred. Dixie weighs in at 98 pounds. Right on track for her first kidding in a little over 4 months.
Diva, the affected doeling, is progressing at what we consider a normal rate, for a slightly slower maturing line. It is very hard to believe, when we look at her, that there is a genetic Time-Bomb ticking below the surface. The only trick is, we don't know how long the timer is set for.
Comparing her to the older mature does, she is growing well.
I keep watching Diva anxiously, looking for faltering in her step, or some sign of failure. There are days that I wonder if it would be worth re-testing her.
