    I have decided to get over my terrible bad 2 weeks and ignore dreading kidding and forcing myself to get in the mood of kidding! I was excited a few weeks ago then that just went down the drain so I'm getting that back. Of course once I decided this I went out to take pictures and my camera died! But I wasn't getting me down and choose to not get upset that I can't find my charger!!! So let's just pretend these are great pictures they really annoy me but I'm going with it.
    Ok to the point of this! I have 57 does bred and they start in two weeks! I'm thinking the time is going to fly this time since I have nothing ready yet. But weather is good and should be ready in no time.
    So first off here are the lucky dogs

    And the new baby Yoshi. He's not a midget I swear he was a year old when I let him make me some babies

    Now time for the best pictures you have seen! Im not going to blow it up with every doe so tried getting group shots and the ones that are due the soonest. For better pictures and most of the does (there's a few I still haven't gotten decent pics of)

    There is a lady around me that breeds a lot like that at once too, and she has had the most freaking doelings ever while everyone else is having bucklings lol good thing for her because dairy goats. I am over here just waiting for one single stinking doe to kid and it is driving me insane!

    Thank you guys!! I'm actually not liking them all going at once and that first day they all came into heat I just didn't know how to stop it lol I was going to just take the buck away but I figured that was just asking for trouble on making mister mean which he's the kind of guy that just wants to be left alone.
    I will actually have no help! My husband wasn't very good on timing his vacation time. He's on it right now and will go back to work the 21. Right now I'm just hoping I catch up on sleep. I've been sick and I have a baby goat with a broken leg in the bathroom which is right by my bedroom so I hear her little cast thumping around all night lol I'm considering moving my bed into the living room :p

    she's pretty sure she is a goat I've gotten her a boyfriend and then a buddy but she down right beats the crap out of others. I figure she is worth the feed for her entertainment spitting on the cows when they get close to the fence and watch the horses try and figure out what she is. Honestly she is a life saver though because she always knows who's going into labor and stays with them. It's easier to notice a alpaca not at the feeder then which one isn't there lol

    Honestly if everything goes well I'll be in 7 heaven over it all. Sure I'll have times of being grumpy but it is so fun watching so many kids running and playing. This is the first time I've had so many due all at the same time though. I think the most I ever had kid the same day was 5.
    Oh Rodger my advise right now is stay away from those black ones lol with little sparkles in the bathroom I'm pretty anti black goats right now lol but for some reason black is the it thing this year. I've always had people wanting to be on my waiting list for dapples, mainly black dapples but I have 3 wanting just straight black. But you watch I won't have any this year lol

    Well 56 more to go :( lulu aborted a buckling this morning. Poor girl just had a ear hanging out and when I went to help realized it was upside down. Honestly if it was going to be born upside down I'm ok with it coming out now then when it's 2 weeks bigger. It wasn't all that fun getting the little guy out as it was. But again another thing thrown in the loop. Right now I'm just going to assume she might have been hit since she is lower on the scale and hope maybe that's the end of all bad that will happen.
