    My big boer doe has gone solitare and I have a feeling I'm going to get some New Year's babies. She's as big as a barrell, has separated herself from the rest of the herd, and seems to be enjoying just lying in the sunshine. Very very unusual for this girl. I detetected a bit of a discharge from her vulva, so I think she's getting ready to drop.

    Congrats Maggie!! It sounds like you're about to become a grandma. There is nothing like a brand new kid.

    Sorry to take so long with the update. Of course you know she'd have to wait until the middle of a thunderstorm to decide to drop the baby. It's a little doe, and about the cutest little thing you'll ever see. She's got the boer head, mostly black with a sweet little white face. And one of her hindquarters is black, with a little white foot, and her tail is solid black except for a little white pouf on the end. I'm going to have to figure out how to post pictures. She's absolutly adorable.
