    Didn't know when this doe was due because she was bred at a freinds by one of her bucks. Well, Heard her yelling and went to see. Not one, not two, but four babies!!! She was not even very big yet!!! Biggest one is 4# and the smallest one is barely 3# 2 girls and 2 boys. The boys are pure Boer in looks and the girls are solid red from head to toes.Dad was a registered Boer and mom is percentage. She only had one kid last year so that is what we were expecting. With this 4 we now have 50 kids for 2005!!! If I can figure how to put pictures on here I will send some.

    Hey, that's neat! I've got twin does whose momma is half Boer, and the daddy was purebred Boer -- one of them looks like a red and white version of a Dutch Belted cow (except the belt is a little wide). The other pretty much just looks Boer except she's got some spots in the white. They are really pretty babies, five weeks old now and growing fast!
