We bred our doe 'Maize' (Phoenix Farm Amaze Me) today!!! I'm SOOO excited!' She will be an FF and I can't wait to see her udder! She was bred to Phoenix Farm Justice, so there is a line breeding on MCH/GCH Twin Creeks Summer Knight*S*B (Whom I love!) so we are hoping for a doe to retain :D

How exciting! :) I hope you get more than one doe. :)
Several of my does suddenly decided to come into heat all at once today. :rolleyes: I had to resist the urge to let the buck with them, as I've just been learning about BoSe, and I would like to give them some of that before they're bred. Not that I'm in a huge hurry, but I do want kids, and I'm impatient. :)

Thank you! I hope so too! I would like for some to go to some good show homes! I personally think the udders on these doe kids should be real nice! (If Mazie's is anything like her moms I'll be happy :) )

LOL! We really weren't planning on breeding her now... But, how could I say no to her screaming begging ;) :ROFL:

We were planning for March/April kids... But just couldn't help it! Lol!

Bo-Se is Selenium and vitamin E injection... Search 'copper and Bo-Se question' for a thread I started a little while ago.. There is tons of info on there :)

My vet told me people usually do them in the fall - aids in fertility and the Pacific Northwest is selenium deficient.

I was aiming for kids in April/May but I couldn't wait either! I mean, there is a slight chance that she won't take this time and I'll have to repeat it! ;) I have young bucks and they are still figuring out what to do. So I'm breeding does whenever they come into heat from now on just in case they don't take the first time. I don't want January to come around and not have all my does bred!

I'll take screaming and begging over using a heat lamp in early spring. Planning for May-June babies here ;)
