    Well it's that time of the year again and the babies are coming!!! :leap:
    We have 4 does due to kid about anytime now. I have been trying to hold off posting till I got good pictures of the does but it has been a very rainy month and rained for the past three days. Still no sunshine here. So I brought the does into the barn and did get a picture of each tonight. They are not great pics by any means but at least I got pics to show you. By now their bellies have dropped and they are posty as they are ready. We will soon have babies!!!

    Anyway I am getting the kidding jitters about now waiting for the big moments to arrive and wanted to share this with you all... :wink:

    First up is our Eowyn... she is on day 138 today.
    She is our drama queen and always needs to be treated special during her time. She loves to be moved over to the 'maternity area' and treated special and will even pretend like it's time just to get attention. She is our drama queen. :roll:

    Then there is Warpaint... she is on day 137 today.
    Warpaint is a sweetheart and wonderful birther and mother. I LOVE this doe. She never complains about anything. And she gives me some of the prettiest kids ever born here on our farm. Only thing is I have only ever gotten twin bucks form her in the past. Every season the same thing... beautiful, colorful twin bucks. I SO want a doe from her. I will be overjoyed should she produce a doe this season. And should she give me twin does, words can't even describe how happy I would be. This year she looks like she has triplets. So I can hardly wait to see what she gives. So please send your doe thought to me and Warpaint for this breeding. :girl:

    Mystique is on day 137 as well.
    This will be her first freshening so I am rather nervous yet excited about this kidding. I don't care what she has as long as it isn't a huge single buckling for her sake. I just adore this little girl and don't want her to be too uncomfortable her first time. So pray all goes will for us will you. :pray:

    And then there is Panda also on day 137.
    I know, I know, what was I thinking? I guess I wasn't so now I will pay with lots of sleepless nights with 4 in a row. Just so they space them out and I get some sleep before going insane is all I hope for. This is my first kidding with Panda since bringing her in, so I don't know what to expect from her. Hopefully she is not another drama queen like some others. I am hoping for a buck and a doe from her, but anything she gives me will be fine by us as long as she is a good mother. That yet is to be seen as I don't have any kidding experience with her. But I am sure she will do well. She is a gentle soul. :love:

    So that's our first 4 does due now until December... I will keep everyone posted as kids are born along with pictures! I just wanted to share my excitement and anxiety for my upcoming kiddings & babies that will be here very soon now!

    As round as all those girls are, I just really don't think a single is a problem for any. Haha Looks like multiples on all of them. Good luck! Can't wait to see what you get! How exciting!!!

    Thanks so much everyone! :grouphug:
    Especially for all the doe thoughts you are sending my way... :girl: :girl: :girl:
    I may need it as I just heard from a friend of mine this morning who just had 2 sets of twin bucks born in the past week. I sure hope this isn't a sign of things to come. :GAAH:

    I am not so sure about that. I am guessing a single from Panda and possibly Mystique. My girls were pretty round to start with. I tried slimming them down some before breeding and was successful with some but not all. :roll:

    Oh how true is that. Everytime I find something I just LOVE, they tend to be half way across the country.
    But remember, I do make several trips to PA each year to visit kin folk. And we make a "goat transport trip" from SC to PA every Spring! :wink:

    Thanks again everyone! And please keep sending those doe vibes my way!!! :girl: :girl: :girl:

    Well we'll see. I like to guess by how wide they are but some of mine are wide to begin with and still have litters. Good luck! Won't be long now!
