    Since I saw Bailey flagging like crazy tonite....I went out in my jammies with a spotlight in my hand to introduce her to Hank, I had gotten Bailey specifically so Hank would be used here. After 2 years of celibacy Hank the Crank acted true to his nickname.. but was polite enough to romance her first :love: They'll get more time together tomorrow.


    Bailey will be 2 years old in March and weighs 48# so I am confident that my first FF since 08 will be just fine as a new momma.

    Projected due date at day 145 for her would be February 23, 2010

    Bailey has wattles....so we'll see if she gives those to her kids.

    Angel is in flagging heat as well but I think she'll be waiting til her next heat and be bred around the 20th with Teddy.
    Binky will be next in line and be bred with Chief next week.

    As much as I should have the 3 girls deliver close together for work related reasons, I'd rather not do that to myself....Binky and Angel went within a day of each other this past March.

    Hey congrats on the breeding. I have two does that I bred last week that will be due around the same time as yours. They are due the 17th, and 18th of Feb. So we can be on baby watch together. Good luck on your other breedings, and so glad Hank got to have alittle romance. lol

    Baileys dam has a really nice udder for a cross girl, so I really hope that Bailey turns out to be as good a milker as Bootsie and even Tilly was good when she was in milk.....now, the question we all ask, wonder what these kids will look like? Baileys dad was a grey agouti pygmy and her mom was a light carmel marked nigi/pygmy.....Hanks dad was as black as he is and his mom a medium grey agouti.


    WGF.....It will be great to have a buddy to be :hair: with!!! Happy kiddings to you too :hug:

    WOW, you have just started and I have been done for a while, we bred them all in August.

    I will have all Jan babies if I am lucky.

    He is a very handsome boy.

    LOL...Yep, Since Bailey is a FF I wanted her to have my full attention so I am hoping to have a week between her and the other 2 girls :wink:
