    Ok so after owning goats for years I finally decided to try to breed. And now that I have 4 does bred I am sooooo nervous. Maddie is a little over 2 months and according to my calculations will be due Feb 3rd( I am hoping she goes on the 2nd since I grew up in Punxsutawney) The little sleeze ran through 2 fences and right to the boys. And I saw both of them mount her before I could get around to the gate. So I don't know who got her, but she has not come back into heat. More strands of electric were added and no more problems. The rest won't be due until march/april. I have been reading all the past threads. Is it normal to be this nervous?? I just want everything to go well. :GAAH:
