    Her name is Christmas Eva!!!

    She is the newest addition to our herd on this a day of celebration.

    She is our first nubian/boer cross doeling ever. And she's asleep in my lap right now! Her mother wanted nothing to do with her either, her mom's a gallon milker and has a full bag while eva's hungry. I'll try to get pics of her for y'all!!

    Merry Christmas, and may you have a great suprise in your barn soon too!

    How wonderful for you, and I love the name. This is the season for new birth, and over the years we have had Jingle Bell, Noel, Rudy, and Ho Ho. :)

    Well congrats!! Oh, please post some pics of your new baby! I have a Nubian doe due next month. She's bred to a Boer/Spanich cross. I'd love a (sort of) sneak-preview!

    Congratulations on your new Christmas doeling. My Nubian buck's mom was born on Christmas Eve and her name is Christmas Eve - Evie for short. I breed my goats to start kidding in March but we have 2 who I think will kid in late January or early February due to bucks escaping. Boer Nubians are lovely goats. My 4 year old Kendi is a great example.
