    I've always wanted boers but have never gotten one! Two of my girls are due any day now so I'm somewhat in the same boat as you! :)

    I love boers they are the only ones I have raised but glad I started with them. Plus their kids are so fat and cute.

    Kidding supplies are ready, and we are in the final days of the countdown for the first four!

    Poppy's ligaments have been slowly loosening, but can still be found, and her udder is growing but nowhere near her kidding size. We'll be watching her closely though!

    The weather has been pretty cold the last several days, and it is forecast to continue for a couple more days, so, hopefully she'll wait until the middle of the week!

    Well, Poppy was due yesterday, and...nothing.

    Both she and her daughter, Notty, who is due tomorrow, are both in the uncomfortable, space out zone. Both of them have loose ligaments, but I can still find them. Mags, due on the 23rd, isn't far behind.

    Fee, due the 26th says she can hold 'em all month if need be!

    These girls are killing me!!!:hair:

    This is day 155 for Poppy...she's kidded on day 153 and 154 her first two times. I guess she needs them extra well baked this time around!

    We are on days 153 for Notty (first timer), 151 for Mags (she's kidded on day 153 both time previously, if I remember right) and 149 for Fee. And they are all holding those kids hostage!

    At least our weather is better. Mid 30's for highs and mid 20's for lows. :roll:
