    If you ask my name I couldnt tell you but 6 does kidded over the last few?days...mostly uneventful thank God!
    the Nubian quaded out again...3 simple unassisted breech (AAKK) andwe had to pull a dead 10lb buckling. All were full term. So I ask why...no changes of anything around here.
    OneFF Boer had quads it took her a few days to get used to her new brood.
    Last yr Mys Lela was standing at the hay rack one minute & down to busines the next, no warning whatsover other than being bagged up for almost a month prior.
    This yr same thing, I happened to look out and there she was delivering a big beautiful doeling. She looks like a little bulldog.
    Right now we are looking at I think 14 kids bring your money & a trailer come May!! Most of this crop has to go we are plumb out of space!
