    We have been frantic packing to move, we have to leave Jan.18th. Our best doe is due @ the 31st of Dec. Sooooooooooo looking forward to the kids, nice break from our hectic schedule. She has had her CD/T shot and Bo-Se shot. This afternoon hubby turned on the camera to monitor her in the barn, love to hear all the barn noises in the night. This is her 4th kidding: twins, triplets and triplets. I am guessing 2 boys and a girl. Whatever we are blessed with will be welcomed. The rest of the ladies are due the middle of April. One more to breed to have longer milk time. I can not wait to hold the kids, I am "a cheap date" and proud of it...Joan ;)

    We have five kids now, born in the last couple of weeks. Right now, with it in the teens outside, and those kids spending another night in the washroom, I am promising myself no December babies next year! lol It'll warm up tomorrow, though, and all will be right with the world.
    Good luck on yours. I'm with you; kiddings are an exciting time!

    You know Mary I never never make new years resolutions at least not in years, but am this year. NO more DEC, Jan and Feb kids every year I have had at least one born on the coldest night/early morn that We have had that year. DUH I know the people up north have it cold all the time, but goodness you would think here in TX we could have winter babies and not freeze our buns off :rolleyes: Well supposed to warm up some so hope my girl waits.

    I just went and picked up triplets, a doe of mine, Demi, who is used as a family milker, bred to my buck Angelo (his dam is a GCH 90 with her milk star, with a 91 and a 92 daugther in Tim Pruitt's herd, his sire was 4th place get of sire at the 2004 Nationals), so they are still Lonesome Doe gals and guys :) Two doelings which I will be selling one of when my March kids start coming, and a buckling, he is alot blonder than the girls, but they are all brown, silver ears, polls and noses one with a white splash. Mom's and excellent milker, as is her full sister Dallas, he is 4 sale with his purebred Nubian paperwork for 50$ cash.... you disbud/tattoo and feed) to the first person who comes and gets him. 281-592-6914 or vickilonesomedoe@hotmail.com Demi tested negative for CAE upon her sale and is the only goat who lives at their farm. They will be on grocery store milk starting tommorrow. So I will be bottle feeding babies unexpectedly :) Vicki
