Alright folks the other part is pretty full of my nonsense XD so this year and next year I will be having so many does kidding so lets list these soon to be mamas

August/September kidding we have 11 does
We have 5 bred to Jack 50% registerable babies
1 bred to Chief waiting on his paper work
3 bred to goliath
1 bred to Angus
And maybe one more bred to goliath
We bought 7 bred this year

September/October breeding we have our lovely first timers
All being bred to our very own Wonka that we just bought so more 50% babies
6-8 does being bred to him

December/January we have our lovely 10 maybe 11 being bred again in late December for our May/June babies

January my lovely Nubian will be bred to either Flash or Wonka for June babies to stay in milk for august September

And that's our breeding plans for most of the year but they may change

I wish you the most enjoyable/ easy kidding season. Bring your rollar skates..sounds like you are going to be very busy!
Oh yes very busy so many first timers but also our mature does who throw multiples every time:bonk: but the September run has changed since a doe decided to wean her baby early and also another doe so that makes 10 does for our September breeding all first timers except for 2 (doh)

Definitely will be a busy time for you!! Exciting though! We just got done breeding all but one left, here. (2 are younger and I think I might hold them till next fall, I don' like 2 kidding seasons).

I try not to say I'm DONE lol, because then I find another hahaha. We brought in a few this year, I only have plans for 1 or 2 more brought in within the next two years and WANT to be done with bringing in as we'll be retaining more. Never seems to happen that way LOL

Oh yeah really busy we got I don't even know how many to breed in Sept and about 10 birthing in Sept but those girls with birth outside

We said we were done after buying a starter herd of 10 from Iowa but I guess that doesn't happen XD so yeah were trying to keep ourselves from buying any more lol

Pictures just don't do any goats justice! We thought we were coming home with some girls that were about 90 pounds, no definitely not! They weigh about 150 pounds each we needed 3 people to get them in the car and out! And they jiggle when they walk I think I'm in love ❤
