    First up Pinky, due February 1-6. She was accidentally bred to Ebony, our standard buck. :( This will be her second freshening.

    Next is Jenny, due March 13. Also bred to Eb. She had trips last year, I'm hoping she has twins this year. The runt was a little weak and had trouble drinking enough. This will her fourth freshening.

    And then is Honey, due April 9. Bred to Eb as well. She had twins last year as a FF.

    I was actually only going to breed Jenny this year. Eb got out and bred Hon and I have no idea how he got Pinky, but whatever.

    Naming scheme for this year is ice cream flavors. Any ideas are much appreciated :)

    Here are some photos. First Pinky, then Jenny, then Honey, and last, Ebony.

    All of them are beautiful! And I love the ice cream theme. How about Rocky Rhode for a buck? :)

    It's on the list :D
    IF we get buck twins (and I'm hoping we don't) we're planning on naming them Rocky Road and Moose Tracks.

    haha that was my first thought too. Rocky road and heavenly hash are my all time favorite ice creams.

    More photos. Pinky is really getting big. Honey's getting big as well, and she still has three months to go. Here's hoping she doesn't have too many. :p

    Your buck is handsome! Is Pinky a ND? Have you had a situation similar to hers before (accidental breeding to bigger buck) ? Are the kiddings always difficult when that happens?

    Yep, ND.

    No, never had anything like this happen. All I've read about it is that the kids often turn out too big. Thankfully, this is her second kidding, so she somewhat knows what she's doing.

    I think she will be ok, at the ultrasound the vet said the kids were small, she's not eating much grain, and it's very likely she'll have trips (smaller babies).

    Was just curious as I have a unregistered ND that I bred with my ND buck but she is seems small . I am almost suspicious that someone may have fibbed and she is possibly part pygmy. I have been freaking out over complications--- this incident is calming me a little and I hope everything goes super smoothly! She is adorbs.

    It seems like Pinky gets wider daily. Her udder has definitely gotten bigger dice yesterday. 21-26 days to go.

    Pygmies are actually bigger than ND's are so I say they were telling the truth:)
