    Amelia came back to me and she's pregnant! I bought her along with a dappled Boer buckling 2 yrs ago and then sold her a few months later to a friend. Now this friend needs to downsize and I got her back! Amelia is a small commercial Boer. My friend raised a mixed breed bottle buckling a year ago and had him neutered. Last fall she saw him trying to breed does and it was discovered the castration had NOT been done properly. So Amelia became pregnant with his kids! I'm excited to see what she has! I doubt it will be anything I'll want to keep long term but should be interesting! And an unknown due date too! Anyone want to guess how long till she kids? Any guesses on what breed the buck is? My friend thought possibly dairy? maybe pygmy cross? He is probly only 80-100 lbs now at 1 year old.

    I would guess Nubian/Nigerian cross for the buckling! I bet the kids come out with full boer/Nubian ears.

    I bet Amelia has twin does around February 25th for you! I have a doe due February 11th (thank you escaped weaned junior keeper buckling...and thank goodness I wrote down the escape date!) and Amelia looks 1-2 weeks behind her udder-wise. But of course, this is all a guessing game!

    Love her coloring! The buck looks like a Nubian cross to me. As SalteyLove suggested- maybe crossed with a Nigerian Dwarf? I'd say maybe 3-4 weeks to go. :)

    Thanks for the guesses! I was thinking she might still wait a month which is just fine with me. I'll have some lambs due then too!

    The face of the buck is most deff a Nigerian face lol just the expression idk reminds me of my goats so I guess a Nigerian cross and because the ears I'd guess Nubian or boer

    Her udder looks like it still has some room to grow. Maybe a few more weeks?

    I'm hoping she waits a couple more weeks anyway. We plan to be away overnight feb 19-20 for family day wknd so it would be great if she waits till after that.

    Ok. Getting nervous. We are leaving sunday morning and coming back monday night from a little family getaway trip. Amelia hasn't really changed much so I'm hopeful she'll be waiting till after I'm back. But I'm also scared she'll kid while I'm gone. I have the neighbour family doing my chores and am quite sure they can handle it but.....makes me nervous anyway!
