This morning at 7 I went out to feed and Bootsie didnt come in the barn and was calling me. I went out to her and rubbed her down and she laid down and began to push. I guess she was waiting on me. Everything went wonderfully and she had
:girl: :boy: :boy: all three are just beautiful. Not sure on the eyes yet but they have all eat good and mom and kids are bonding in the barn.

The girl is on the right and is light buckskin and the two boys are in the front, a light buckskin and a black and white like mom.

Re: Bootsie kidded

Oh, they're beautiful! I think that my favorite color is the buckskin. But, that's open to change a whole bunch over the next many years. :)

Congrats on everything going so smoothly and you got to be there.

Re: Bootsie kidded

What a good girl- do you think that her behavior is genetic- could you get me one of those?- imagine. no more all nighters- the doe just sees you, comes over and delivers- worth a million dollars!
Congratulations of a nigh perfect kidding- beautiful babies.

Re: Bootsie kidded

Thanks Cinder.

Enjoytheride
I hope it is genetic cause I am keeping that doeling. It was so funny I had gotten up twice to look out the window and she had her head looking straight at the barn wall but at 7 am I had a feeling I should go out and just check on her close up and she has some discharge but not alot. She wanted me close and let me rub her which she had not wanted me to touch her the last few months so that was nice and she just kept chatting then laid down and pushed twice and out came the doeling. I was beside myself with excitement. This doe is a true gem and her little girl is a keeper.

Re: Bootsie kidded

Congrats Teresa!! They are gorgeous!!!! Is it the Buck you used that threw the Buckskin color or does Bootsie have it in her lines? I don't blame you at all for keeping that Doeling! She is a doll!!

And if only that Buckling wouldn't be related to any of the other kids due... :sigh:

Thanks Brandi, The only doe I have that is bred to a different buck is Sugar my tri colored doe and she is due in like 3 months and I might be getting 2 more does in a few weeks and will be breeding them to Bo my new blue eyed buck for Oct or Nov kids.

The buck I used this year is who is passing on the buckskin color as he was buckskin like them and so was his dam, Bootsie doesnt have it in her background.

Re: Bootsie kidded (new dry pictures added)

Thanks Shelly and Liz

Here are some new pictures with them dry.



This is my favorite of Bootsie loving on her daughter.



They are doing so great. They are eating like pros and bouncing already.

What a sweet family. I love the expressions of the does in the picture. They're right there with her, sharing her experience.

As soon as we get some acreage and a setup for goats, I know what breed I want. What amazing colors. I enjoy the larger breeds, but I'm not exactly young (or tall). Having 150 lb.+ Boers or Alpines isn't going to get easier as the years go by. The little guys would be more manageable. Besides the cute factor is hard to resist. Just trying to be practical.

Congratulations! :stars:
